Good morning!

My company is using Wise to create its installation packages to deploy VB
applications. At my manager's behest, I designed some front-end screens in
Visio, assuming that Wise had some standard VB form programming ability (I
didn't have Wise installed at the time). The developer said "no way" to my
suggestions, and after looking at Wise, I can see why.

My manager is open to using other applications to design the front-end
screen, and using Wise to create scripts that the front-end would call.

Has anyone here developed a front-end to an installation CD? What could I
use to do this? Do you have any suggestions for alternative scenarios?

Our goal is to make our installations easier so that users with minimal
Windows skills can install our VB apps with little assistance.

Thanks for your help!
