just make a program that extracts all your files from a pak file like one created by Terabits packing utility, make sure they are extracted to the relevant directories etc and the files are ok then your away.

Um, why would you want to extract the files? The whole point of pak files, like the ones made by Terabit's packing utility, is that your game can use the pak files directly.

For an installer, get an installer program like NSIS (my fave.) Another free one a lot of people like is InnoSetup.

Try GP Install.

I have used this for a project of mine, and it works well...
It even allows you to code in addins in vb or c++...
And the best part...

Those are nice programs. I was looking for one of these, too :)
I need to learn a bit about these things...
