I think it makes sense for us to first try out the Qt Installer Framework for Windows. If that doesn't work for us I think we are forced to use NSIS(I think it's a bit too bloated for what we'll need but maybe you can help us there?) or the Visual Studio 2012 "Installer project" method.

I'm also seriously considering bundling Jumbo with it, otherwise I don't see much point in providing an installer for Johnny only.

Thanks for the help offer!
