Setups don't work the same in Ubuntu as they do in Windows.

In Windows, the "installer" was a .msi file that contained needed programs as well as a setup executable that is run.

In Ubuntu, we use packages. The package file format used in Ubuntu the .deb file.

Take a peek at this to see how to create a .deb package to distribute to other Ubuntu users.
