Yes. But you're going to have to tell them to create shortcuts to the
application, and things like that. Unless you plan to make a really
full-fledged installer, and I doubt that is the case.

That dialog certainly exists, but you're going to have a very hard time
explaining to people how to use it. It's very unfriendly,
and needlessly convoluted. Editing the registry by hand is simpler,
IMHO, and certainly far faster.
