How to Make an Installation File

If you have an .exe file (or really any file) you’ve made or not, and you want to make an installation to it. The process is easy and quick, just the tutorial is very detailed. This works on Windows Only.

1) Go to your “Run” menu and write iexpress.exe. The run menu can be found in the Start menu.
