A replacement for InstallShield
What are people recommending these days for software installation packaging? I'm still using an ancient version of InstallShield which I purchased about 8 years ago. It still gets the job done - but....
1) The old style setup.exe GUI is starting to look a bit dated now.
2) InstallSheild's own IDE is by no means intuitive.
3) Despite all my hopes, it's never really come down that much in price and there are no upgrade deals available for Version 8, which I'm using.
So it's time to start looking for something new. What do people recommend?
Whenever I install anything from Adobe I'm always (mildly) impressed with their installer but it's probably something proprietory. Also, today I installed a softward package called Final Media Player and I was very impressed with its installer (though that one might be propretory too for all I know).
What else is available?
