National Instruments will not be implementing this idea. NI has no plans at this time to change the file structure of the 'Installer' build spec output. The current workaround is to zip up the installer build output yourself, or use a 3rd party program to create a single-file installer.

Since LabVIEW can already create zip files with no problem, I propose the ability for LabVIEW to create a single file installer that can easily be distributed, like this:
This can be as easy as a checkbox in the current installer Advanced page:
