What a great tool ! When i learned that VS2013 doesn't allow to create an installer for Win XP, I was looking for another solution. This is by far the simplest. I just tested the 2.9 and I am very glad you added the output folder option.

On the input side: Is there any possibility to choose only certain files out of the selected source folder? Currently I use the 'Build' folder of VS2013 as source folder of InstallSimple. But there are several files more than needed. Therefore it would be cool to just select the file needed: myApp.exe and to drop all the rest (e.g.: *.pdb, *.exe.config, *.application and so on). I didn't find a solution to stop VS2013 from creating them. Therefore I have to manually delete these files after each build if I don't want them to be included in my setup.exe.

Many thanks for your support and for your great tool!

In the next version we shall not add this ability...
But we already know about such necessity...

Thank you for your interest to InstallSimple

Has this feature been implemented yet? I'm using the Pro version and honestly, I see no difference between this and the Free version. They both look and act the same to me.

I need to be able to select the files to include from the source folder. Just installing all of the files found in that folder does not work for me.
