I have set up a database program that I'm going to market. It is for parachurch & interchurch organizations. I now have all of the program done, the user manuals, etc. However, I have to create a .exe program that will create a new folder in the Program Files & copy the 2 files (front & back end) over into that folder and create an icon on the desktop.

I've never written an .exe file before. Can someone tell me what language they are normally in? Are they hard to do? I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Just in case someone has the same problem, the best solution I've found for that is Inno Setup:

http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

It's a Windows only program that allows you to create a complete setup program that does the file copying, icons on desktop, etc. Best thing of all -- it's completely free.

I use Inno for all my Windows distributions (Mac stuff is easy -- just zip it!) and it's been a sanity-saver.
