Windows 7: Making installation files

Making installation files

Not sure where this Q should go, but since I have received so much help in the past from this website, I thought I'd ask.

Before I got rid of an old comfuser I had, I copied the folders of some of the games onto a flash drive (the comfuser did not have any restore/backup disc). I copied these folders onto the comfuser I have now & the games are working fine.

My question is:
How do I take game folder A & make an installation file out of it?

Just to update.

I did check out Indigorose Setup-Factory & it would've done what I wanted, but I found out I can use my WinRar & make a Self-Extracting file which has done what I wanted just fine.

Thanks for the link Dzomlija.

Thanks for the update CJW. I should have thought of WinRAR or WinZip, but you mentioned creating an installation file for you games, so I figured you'd want to be able to have an uninstall facility too.

Self-extracting archives do the job just as well, I guess!

Explorer - Making new files appear at the end of the list (like XP)?
In Windows XP, copied files appeared at the end of the window, so that just scrolling to the bottom (e.g. by pressing the End button) made it very simple to locate them. In Windows 7 the new files (and folders) are sorted immediately, which means that in a folder with lots of files I have to go...
