Quick question: What installer-creator software do you other indie devs use?, I'm after one that won't cost craploads.

I always liked the FREE and Paid versions of this https://www.clickteam.com/install-creator-2 There is another free one I used to use, but can't remember off-hand. I will try and find it. But the one in the link, I never had an issue with and used the free and paid versions for many, many years and thousands of deployments.

This is the other one I was using a lot at the end. Rock-solid reliable and I have a lot of friends that used it, too: https://www.ssesetup.com The guy keeps it very current.

At the end I was pretty much using SSE for everything, except for registered versions and for those I used the Pro version of Install Creator.

I think I used a program called "Actual Installer" a few years ago, dunno if it'd be up to spec with Windoze nowadays mind.

There is a freeextractor.sourceforge.net/FreeExtractor/,
