Would this work for delivering a WAMP with encoded app installed?

It's not going to be able to install apache, php and mysql as the installer generally runs remotely and would not be able to do that over FTP. However it will install the encoded files and handle other tasks.

Hmm. Won't it make local installers? My apps come in both web and Intranet versions. I will have some customers who either don't have an internal web server running or would want to run my app on a separate machine. It is currently a two-step process: they download and install a WAMP of some stripe and then I RDP in and install the app. I figured if they are standing at the console to install a WAMP, then I might as well slip my app into the install.

The package maker is sweet, but dropping a while new web server and app install in one hit... Sweeter. I already have a complete install on a thumb drive that you can just plug in and two clicks puts your web server and app online Smile Cool for about ten users.

It can also make local installers but not ones that will install MySQL, PHP and other basic infrastructure components that should be present already. To tackle that task a native Windows installer tool such as Innosetup would be a better fit.
