Create exe?

I have the source and have made the changes I want.

I have a working program from the src files, but what tool do I use to make an exe that will create the desktop Icon, works with the uninstaller, etc.

Thanks…

Thanks and Regards,

Praveen.

Which version of patch do you use?

Before you use “ant installer.izpack” execute “ant clean”.

Hi,

Am using IzPack-install-4.2.1 and launch4j-3.0.1-win32.exe. I have also execute “ant clean”. But still am getting the same exception. Please help me.

Thanks and Regards,
