You could try InnoSetup from http://www.jrsoftware.org

Try InstallAnywhere. They have a free version available. Works fine.

Hi,

If you're using InnoSetup, it's possible to setup a number of directories
in the install script itself. Look in the script for a section labelled,
[Files]. Underneath it you can place as many files as you want using the
following:

[Files]
Source: "C:\My Program\Main Dir\mainprog.exe"; DestDir: "{app}";
Source: "C:\My Program\Main Dir\Sub Dir\MyDLL.dll"; DestDir: "{app}\Sub
Dir"

Etc..

Hope this helps,

Anthony

since you mentioned batch files, I think you are talking about windows
installs. I've noticed that JAR files are listed as "executable jar"
files in explorer, and if I double click one, it starts up a JVM and
runs it. (sometimes it fails for no main(), but hey)

If not, you can make a batch file sure. to ensure it works, i'd put
it in the install dir (where the jar is) and that way you can
guarantee it launches and don't have to mess with paths.

This project works good for me (tested MacOSX and Windows).
