Creating an Installer for My Plug in

Does anyone have any advice as to how to create an installer for my GH component. Or which tool to use?

I used advanced installer a long time ago but don’t want to pay to activate it again as it is pretty expensive.

Id like the ability to specify where i place the component folder in say the programs folder. (I believe i need to edit some file - not sure which that would allow me to tell grasshopper to point to this folder).

Id prefer a GUI interface if possible not script based - similar to advanced installer.

I’ve had good experiences with NSIS but Steve’s alternative seems to be more sound, nevertheless NSIS is great and provides a scripting language and all.
