On Windows, we use NSIS as the installer, on the Mac we use Package  

This is after having saved our image in what we call 'fast start' with  
Sophie already running.  granted, this took a lot of engineering time  
to get down properly due to making sure you could save a running app  
on the Mac and make sure things were cleaned up when the image was  
opened on windows (font sets, etc)

We could not just auto start the app on image open due to performance
