I have tried to create a MSI package but the result is *very* slow
because of the size and a huge number of files, also sym-links did not
work after installation of the MSI package.

Instead I use Nullsoft Scriptable Install System (remember to use -a to preserve file attributes).
Take a look at my homepage for more information:

Anyway, I would also like to know the command-line options for setup (if
they exists)
