    If I understand correctly you are looking for an installation wizard that can run post installation scripts. If that is the case I would highly recommend INNO

    It has a built in Pascal based script language. But, it can run any external application of course.

    It is an installer wizard just like Install Shield. Thereore it can run other programs and utilities. It does not have built in knowledge of Python or SQL.

    I suggest you follow the link and see if it meets your needs
