Hi Everybody,
First of all I would like to apologise as I know that this question has nothing to do with JRUN but as frustration is too much I thought perhaps this forum may extend some help..
I have made one standAlone application and want to achieve following:-
1. want to make a self extracting setup EXE file like in others do in windows. when a users double click it should start itself installing the application and start showing the prompt screens as required.
2. I also want to check whether the user's system has java iinstall or not.
3. if not would like to install it after asking his permission on some prompt.
4. Would also like to change the classpath automatically.
Perhaps this requires checking registry etc. whihc I don't know..If somebody give some reference sites or clues it would be a great help.
I DONOT WANT TO USE ANY THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE TO ACHIEVE THE ABOVE.
Please help me to write code for it.
Thanks a lot in advance for the help extended
regards,
Arun Mahajan

You might want to check out the book Java Deployment with JNLP and Web Start (author's last name Marinilli). It has a small section in it which builds an installer for CD-ROM deployment and covers most of what you need.

if you're going to distribute a professional software, have a look at Zero G's "InstallAnywhere" (www.zerog.com). I'd say this is THE Java installer
