    Default How to create a install file ?

    In Windows usually a file (program) is downloaded from some where, then by double clicking on it we can install it.

    Is it possible to do the same thing in Qt ?
    How about doing the same for Linux ?

    Just as with any windows program. You can use NSIS for this.

    I second the suggestion for NSIS. It's fairly easy to use, looks professional, and is open source and free. I used to distribute my software in a zipped archive, with a note saying "just unzip whereever you want." But this was too difficult for many people, so now I use a Windows-style installer. Ease of use takes a backseat to familiarity in the Windows world.

    for windows systems i like 'advanced installer' from
    caphyon (google it!). it is easy to use and has a gui. it's
    commericial software but a basic version is for free.

    best regards,
