NSISW Error Line 171

I'm a pretty much noob to making portable apps, as well as coding/programming in general, but I seem to have grasped NSIS pretty well.

Besides that, I've been getting errors in Line 171 of the compiler using John's installer .nsi files as an example. In fact, I even tried the AbiWord installer file to see if it would work flawlessly. Well enough, the compiler hung with this error log:

IfFileExists: "$PROGRAMDIRECTORY\$PROGRAMEXECUTABLE" ? FoundProgramEXE :
MessageBox: 48: "$PROGRAMEXECUTABLE was not found. Please check your configuration"
Abort: ""
Invalid command: FindProcDLL::FindProc
Error in script "C:\Documents and Settings\Ian\Desktop\PortableApps\AbiWordPortable\Other\AbiWordPortableSource\AbiWordPortable.nsi" on line 171 -- aborting creation process

Can anyone help me?

You need FindProcDLL

You need the FindProcDLL plugin for NSIS. Head to the NSIS site and add it in. I'm going to be updating the readmes to better document these addons.

Yet another error

[All edited away because I found the fix to them]
OK: I've got my PortableApp.exe file... but the regular .exe wants me to use options when I start the game. a regular string may consist of:
::
These options are available:

-brightness n Set the brightness of the screen.(n = 0 - 100, default = 100)
-luminosity n Set the luminous intensity.(n = 0 - 100, default = 0)
-res x y Set ths screen resolution to (x, y).
-nosound Stop the sound.
-window Launch the game in the window, not use the full-screen.
-reverse Reverse a shot key and a charge shot key.
::

that written like this: -brightness 100 -luminosity 100 -res 800 600

How exactly would I go about doing this? If Possible...

Hey John

Hey John wouldn't it be best to package your own Nsis portable and package it will the plugins you used to make the portable apps. you can call it the Portable app kit or PAK for short

Planning On It

I'm actually planning on doing that... along with a full software developers kit that you can use to make apps that conform to the upcoming PAF spec... including some "no coding necessary" tools along those lines.

Profiles?

OK, so far, I've been able to compile the .exe correctly, but when I run the apps, they fail due to some reason or another. I suspect that the cause is because I have no .profile 's for settings, but I have absolutely No clue on how to make one...

Any support would be appreciated.
