I think installers are nice to be able to install/uninstall easily when your not that use to maintaining things your self. PJ64 is designed that it does not need an installer and you can just copy it around. Even more so now with all settings in a cfg file.

The main reason we had the uninstaller before was to be able to clean up the registry.

Generally, the point of moving to the ini was to get the settings out of the registry, if you make a installer, you're just registry entries back into it.

Though i know you can make low profile installers using NSIS and Innosetup, which don't create uninstall keys.
