MSI - do we really need to depend on Microsoft?

Inno Setup

I've found this installer to be a bit more configurable and personalble than MSI

One more way to get away from MS terany!

How about NSIS, which is much smaller and is, in fact, we're using?

I like the new NSIS installer, it's miles better than the old Nullsoft one.

For what it's worth, I liked the old one better: it had individuality. It wasn't just another drone in the collective.

I'd forgotten about that one...

Good call! - As long as Nulsoft is willing to leave it open to developers...

With WinAmp3 changing the whole plugin architecture they aren't exactly on my Buddy-Buddy List if you know what I mean :-)

I guess I got mixed up looking at so many different browser and techonologies today... I blamed you for something you wheren't doing...

So very sorry! :-(

I still like InnoEven with the extra 500k because of the ease of script taloring...
To my own demise- I haven't done much work with NSIS so forgive my ignorance... I'll have to look into that for my next slew of products... :-D

one comment on the nsis installer - i can't grab individual files out of the package with 7-zip, and i seem to recall being able to that with the previous ones (although i could be mistaken)... that's my only gripe. smiling smiley
