Do any of the InstallShield products create or use a user-friendly setup stub that can manage the downloading of the setup files (eg msi files, prerequisites, etc) from a secure website location, and then install those setup files? ie Like the way Microsoft use setup stubs to manage downloading and installing of large downloads.

I currently have InstallShield Express 11, and the Web Deployment option is unsatisfactory for our needs. The waiting around for downloads without a progress bar and the ugly IE Active-X warning are the problem.

Thankyou for your advice.

In the Release Wizard, you might see if either of the Web media types "Downloader" or "Install from the Web" does what you want.
