We call them IDEs :)

Actually, if you want to do an installer, you are welcome to come and 
help us get the MSI right. Which includes setting up the test framework 
in which
  -do an install and uninstall and verify that everything gets cleaned up
  -delete the dir and verify the uninstall doesnt bail out
  -run ants unit tests against an install

i.e. its not just the effort of coding the installer, its testing it 
that hurts. I have worked in projects that ship win32 installers and 
testing them was half the fun of the test process. I dont want to go 
there again.
