You can try this. https://github.com/rogerwang/node-webkit/wiki/How-to-package-and-distribute-your-apps

C2 is a webgame framwork and can't naturally move to an installer.However if you use nodewebkit and somekind of packaging. Then you could probably manage.

@jayderyu C2 packages app automatically when you export to node-webkit.


Maybe something like this could be used to make an installer for a nw exported game?

We use Innosetup for Construct 2, and it's free and works well.
