Thank you, Robert.  I'll check out NSIS.

I've been doing more searching in the meantime and came across WIX:

"The Windows Installer XML (WiX) is a toolset that builds Windows
installation packages from XML source code. The toolset supports a
command line environment that developers may integrate into their build
processes to build MSI and MSM setup packages."

Both NSIS and WIX appear, on the surface anyway, to be potential

Thanks again,

I have been using NSIS ( ; I tried out a Ant task for
calling NSIS (lost the URL), but ended up just calling it via the exec
task. NSIS has some really low-level parts mixed together with some high
level bits and pieces; but it works, it has decent documentation (unlike
the INNO Setup, which seems nice, but seems to lack documentation, using
some weird form of Pascal scripting with no object reference that I
could find).
