from what I saw you need to pay a "Steam Greenlight Submission Fee" which is 90 euros but you only need to pay for it once and you can put as much games you want on greenlight.

I guess you are referring to Construct 2 versions. You need the personal edition to sell anything, and the business edition if you make over a certain amount. So you should be able to submit to greenlight with the free version, I guess...

Well to put something on Greenlight you don't need an exported project at all (but it can definitely help you get votes!)

To publish on Steam itself, you'll definitely need the personal or business version.

And yes, you only need to buy the license once.

Hi,

The individual is permitted to make up to $5,000 USD lifetime revenue (or equivalent in other currencies/payments/benefits) from their creations. This includes but is not limited to revenue generated through advertisments, in app purchases, sale of content, licensing of content, contract work.

If you generate more than the above stated revenue you must upgrade your Personal Edition License into a Business Edition license within 14 days regardless of if you intend to continue use of your license or not.

I would recommend using Inno Setup 5. It's free and does the job very well IMO. You can always donate to support the developer if you want :). You'll also want to change your game icon from the NW standard. Just google search for Resource Hacker, use that to change the nw icon to that of your game, then compile everything to .exe using Inno Setup. Sounds more complex than it actually is, just experiment with it to get the hang of what to do.
