If you are new to the subject - go for NSIS: http://nsis.sourceforge.net[^]

or, even better - Unicode version of NSIS: http://www.scratchpaper.com/[^]

I have been using NSIS for over 5 years, deploying both 32-bit and 64-bit software, and never looked back to such bad, uber-expensive alternatives as InstallShield.

NSIS is completely free, open-source, most flexible installation engine, with most plug-ins and skins imaginable. And the time you put into learning its simple syntax will reward you greatly.
