should I use InstallCreator to create an installer?

Exporting node-webkit projects to an executable file using ClickTeam Install Creator would be the best choice?

The title of this post is a bit misleading:

What I think you mean is: "should I use install creator to create an installer for my node-webkit exported game?"

The answer is "probably not", install creator is very outdated. I would look elsewhere, though I'm hesitant to offer alternatives since the best ones are paid.

Since it's free even for commercial use, I must ask. Is it trustable?

I think I've mentioned it somewhere here before but as a packaging professional I own and use Flexera's InstallShield.

I'm happy to make professional windows based installers for a reasonable price if anyone's interested?!

It can include;
Custom dialogues
Custom actions
Branding / themes
Billboard advertising
Upgrades
Licensing / trials
Etc etc

Cheers,
Daniel

Oh and I've used innosetup too, really If your looking for a basic installer than it's a pretty good option... :)

@liaeb When I need it, I'll surely consider.

Thanks both for the answer.
