Hi Shaun,
Personally, I think that Inno Setup is fine as far as it goes, but it
is not really the best solution for software installations. Right now
I'm considering switching to Microsoft Advanced Setup Installer
because it is an advanced installer as the name says. The Advanced
Setup Installer has a lot of nice features such as the ability to
detect the type of processor, memory, check for things like DirectX
version, the .Net Framework, and so on. That makes it the best tool
for installing games etc in my opinion. I suppose you could try and
scripped all that for Inno Setup, but why do all that work trying to
script those features when Advanced Setup Installer can do that
already.
