I don't really understand your question.

So you are using Visual Studio (Express) to build your application. Is that correct?

If so, what does prevent you from distributing the binary with NSIS?

Generally there are two different steps to do:
1. Compile your application with MSVC, which will give you the binary (e.g. EXE and DLL) files
2. Compile your NSIS script with MakeNSIS in order to build your installer and package the binaries built before.

Of course these two steps can be combined/automated with a Batch script...

My Plugins: StdUtils | NSISList | CPUFeatures | ExecTimeout | KillProc
