And, don't forget dependencies!

For many applications the installer often installs Microsoft or other third party files that the application depends on to run.

Various versions of Visual Basic, C++, Dot-Net Framework, and others may be required for an application to run.

While your at it, don't ignore licensing rules. More than a few licensed applications are now only licensed for the first computer they are installed on. Others require that you deactivate the license from the old installation before you can activate the license on your new computer.

Now, if you are building an application, there are various installer builder or packaging programs you can use that will bundle all of your identified registry keys and support programs into a single package to distribute.
