Creating installers

Post by abelthorne » Mon Aug 28, 2006 11:41

I'd like to be able to create Loki installers for some of my games. I've managed to extract the files of some existing installers to take a look at how they're made.

1. is there some kind of reference documentation that I can use to create the needed files ?

2. do you know of good Windows softwares that would allow me to track what's happening during the installation of any given game (what files are copied, where and what changes are made to the register) ?

Filemon for files and Regmon for registry settings should allow you to do that.

Thanks. I'll have to look into this seriously when I have time.
