I'm assuming that you are refering to a setup.exe on the Windows platform.

Visual Studio has the tools to create an installation package.
Visual Studio Installer VS6
Visual Studio Installer 1.1 VS2005

The are also other third party tools that can help with this.
Some of them are mentioned here.

Moving this to the General Computing forum.
