How do you make a custom setup application?
But not using .NET setup and deployment projects

Because in my project the requirement is quite different. It needs lot of Customization in UserInterface & working.

Just look at the requirements of client

Requirement are:

  1. User will be allowed to select only Drive letter (C:,E: etc.)
    (in .NET install screen, it allows to browse the application folder)
  2. While reinstalling if application folder exists already it will save files in back up folder. (Custom action or launch condition doesn't allows such facility).

Hence please, can anybody suggest how to make setup where custom forms can be included?

In similar situations, I used NSIS[^]. Please check whether it will suit you.

creating an msi does not allow for this degree of customisation, not easily. You would need to write your own program to do the install ( using C++ without MFC ideally, so that it works without any dependancy ), or buy one of the more expensive installer products that supports full scripting.
