I would recommend Inno Setup ( http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php ).   
I looked at a bunch, including Nullsoft, when I did the Pd installer  
for Windows and chose Inno.  It works quite well and behaves just like  
a native installer.  Nullsoft's is a bit odd.

But even better than making an installer for Gem would be to  
incorporate Gem into the Pd installer for Windows.  Then you would not  
have to answer all these tech support questions like "where should I  
put the dll?", "how do I set up the path", etc. etc.  It would just be  

The Inno Setup files are in CVS under packages/win32_inno
