What's wrong exactly with nsis installer? It gives you one .exe file, and the
installation can be 100% automatic (no clicks if you want so -- double click
on the .exe and in some 10 seconds it's all installed for you).

That'd be Qt you're thinking of, even if you don't know it yet :) I can't
think of anything more cross-platform, mature or easy to use. Yes, it does
link statically. Compared to Qt, WTL/MFC are ugly hacks. Once you switch to
Qt, I bet you won't want to use WTL ever again. Just give it a try.
But I'm way off topic. No, I don't have much to do with either of the projects
I mention, besides using them.
