I spend today trying to build a new installer for the upcoming
release of BibleCS. I'm abandoning the commercial InstallShield
installer we currently use and am trying to make everything work using
the free NullSoft installer. I gave up after trying to learn the
scripting language and downloaded Eclipse and the NullSoft Installer
plugin for Eclipse. I used a wizard and got it pretty far. Had to hand
edit the generated script to get it to compile.
There are a few things missing:
Launch Readme.txt and wait for close BEFORE launching InstallManager.exe
Registry keys correct so Windows Module self-installers (website,
module download, windows) know where to unzip themselves.
Uninstaller successfully launching "$INSTDIR/InstallManager.exe
-uninstall" to uninstall all modules
I've checked everything in:
https://crosswire.org/svn/biblecs/trunk/installer so if you'd like to
give it a shot, please help yourself! It expects the normal: sword,
icu-sword, biblecs directories all checked out at the same level.
svn co https://crosswire.org/svn/sword/trunk sword
svn co https://crosswire.org/svn/icu-sword/trunk icu-sword
svn co https://crosswire.org/svn/biblecs/trunk biblecs
I'd really welcome the help with this.
