    Hello,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can read our article Application Deployment which will give you a general idea of how to deploy our assemblies. You can ILMerge them and then pack all that up in InstallShield. Please, keep in mind that our support services cover only UI for WinForms and any help regarding InstallShield should be sought in the appropriate forums(such as StackOverflow) or by contacting the InstallShield team.

    Let me know, should you have further questions.

    Regards,

    Why use InstallShield, it's so complex.
    I use InnoSetup and sometimes Actual Installer:

    Hello,

    You can use alternative products such as the ones which Leo mentioned. Basically, you can create an installer our of a Telerik WinForms application as long as you provide all the required files.

    I hope this helps.
