The Dreaded installer
Ok.. I need to build an installer for a web application.
Wise is overpriced. Installshield is OK. Try Innosetup - huge support community and FREE.
I've had good luck with the Nullsoft installer
InstallShield is evil.

I've used Inno Setup and Nullsoft's NSIS in addition to InstallShield and I'd say go for one of the free ones (Inno or NSIS). There is no compelling reason to pay money for InstallShield or Wise... in fact, I've had more problems with the commercial offerings than the free ones, by far.

NSIS is my choice. It is easy to use and extend. I also love the BZ2 compression it has and the small overhead of the installer binary.
