Creating installer of my application


I would like to create installer for windows users for my application which use Ice. My question is "how to install Ice in my installer?". I see two cases:
  1. Execute your installer from my.
  2. Copy Ice files by mine installer.

Problem of first is that "normal" user will not know which your options have he to install and why he install "some Ice".

There are also problems of second - at least, that I dont know which files I need to give where, if I have to write something to registry...

What do you think thaht have I to do?

    Your installer should install the Ice runtime files. Running our installer is not suitable, as it leads to the problem you've described. Ice itself doesn't use any registry variables.
