ZeeroC00l at 29-Apr-11 8:49am
   
You dont need that. There will be a search option in which you can search for the Project type with its name.

Once you've read all the suggestions/answers you've received, you will want to use an installer program generator, I would recommend you to use one like InnoSetup[^] or Installshield[^].

Good luck!
