    You probably mean software that developers use to create an installation setup for their application.

    The Developer Edition of Microsoft Office, and Visual Studio come with a rather limited program (Package and Deployment Wizard) for creating installation setups. There are third-party installers with more capabilities. For instance InstallShield and Wise; there are more.

    Or if what Hans suggested isn't on the money, are you referring to WinZip Self-Extractor Personal Edition?

    Further to WyllyWylly's suggestion, see WinZip Self-Extractors for Software Installation.
