I'm working on a project that uses a Atmega328p with the bootloader installed. The board doesn't have a USB/TTL converter IC but does have the connectors available to plug in an external FTDI cable for uploading sketches. The device will probably be used by people that have no programming experience and don't/won't want to install the IDE. So I was wondering if there's any open source software out there that I could bundle a sketch/hex file into an executable that they could just use to program the chip. I want to be able to provide custom sketch's to people and make it as simple as possible for them.
I have seen a couple of windows GUI front ends for AVRDUDE that allows simple selection of hex files and uploading.

The other part would be rolling the GUI and hex files into a windows installer file, of which there are numerous examples.
