( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have packaged apps up using Inno Setup before and highly recommend it. It is a straightforward tool and is much simpler to use if you also use ISTool (http://www.istool.org/). ISTool gives you a GUI for writing the Inno Setup installation scripts. This gets you up and running right away without having to learn the details of the installer's script syntax. You can literally put together your basic installer in 10 minutes.

The Nullsoft tools are powerful but they use a custom mini-language. If you are willing to learn how to use that or learn how to plug other languages into the system then they may be good choice. However, unless you need some fancy data munging or processing during your install I would recommend Inno Setup and ISTool as a much faster way to build a Windows installer.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
