Sometimes I've come across EAs and indicators that are bundle into a exe file, which makes installation easier by putting all the right files in the all right folders to make it less confusing for the user to install.

Apparently there are ones out there which even allow you to select what mt4 installation you want to install your ea to.

How is this done? Is there some special software out there which can compile this? 

It would be great to be able to auto install the ea, indicators, templates, and input .set files.

You need to use some installer creator tools such as NSIS, Inno setup, or Windows Installer.

I create an open source NSIS script to make creating installer for MT4 EA and indicators easier.

It's not free lunch. You need to know the fuzzy NSIS syntax...

Not sure why the link was removed. The link is a Github repository...
