    Best VB .NET Free Installer

    What is the best free VB .NET installer? Nullsoft and Inno both look good, but I don't think Inno works very well for .NET? I would like an installer that will automatically download the .NET Framework automatically only if needed. Thanks!
    I use VB .NET 2010.

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/instal...up_instal.aspx - Inno Script allowing you to check for/download dependencies like .net framework.

    IMHO waaaaay more convenient than nullsoft.

    Just to satisfy my own curiosity, what's wrong with ClickOnce? Or the setup project for that matter?

    Thanks. I am using Inno, so that will be nice. I tried to do something like this to download updates for my software automatically, but I could not figure out how to ONLY download if a newer version was available? I have a FTP server with a version file online if that helps?
