Windows Installer has been around since the Win95 era. But, like most MS software, isn't all that well liked.

So, if people use someone's installer, it's usually InstallShield or some such. Note that many of these will/may build Windows Installer packages. That tells you what Windows Installer is like. You use another program to generate the packages.

Note that the best Windows installation programs are commercial. You have to reach a certain level of income to make it worthwhile to get a license, learn to use it, and make it a part of your company's culture.
