    Question Installer for the non-computer saavy

    I've got some e-books that I've converted to self-extracting .exe files for a client. My problem is that most people who download these e-books aren't exactly technologically saavy, so they won't know where the files extracted to unless they have something to visually show them (like a good installer program).

    Can anyone recommend a free/shareware program for this sort of thing that is easy to understand?

    Thanks!

    One of my MIS study buddies uses this and he really likes it. He let me use and it is honestly the easiest GUI deployment software that I have used that is in my price range. Most of the deployers I know of have been taken down or are no longer supported.

    Inno Setup is pretty cool but, she wanted a visual one, not one where you have to script it yourself. Inno Setup requires knowledge on how to script installers.
