Make an Installer that will copy files too.

I want to produce an installer package in order to distribute MODs for a game I use. That part seems ok as there are a few free install package builders out there however, I want the installer to 'search' the customers PC for a specific file that I cannot redistribute due to licence agreements, the customer will have the file on their PC. Once the installer finds the file I want it to copy that file to the installation directory.

Is it possible to script that into any of the installer apps and if so, which one does that?
