"Decent program"

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Pros:
- Great compression on installers
- Includes easy to use ZIP2EXE maker
- ZIP2EXE can't create program shortcuts
- ZIP2EXE can't show license or readme
- User must be an expert to create installer scripts... No point & click simple GUI included for users who just want to get it done.
