External installer

If you decide to use an external installer, such as InstallShield or a similar program, Progress Software Corporation recommends that your installer perform all the installation tasks required to install the entire application. When you use an external installer, the installer should:
*Copy all required files to the end user's machine
*Create registry entries for WebClient and your application
*Provide an uninstallation program for the application, typically using the same technology as the installation
Optionally, the installer can create a shortcut for running the application and can perform any additional tasks you want the installation to complete.
