Fixed Issues:

  • Installer allows upgrades when there is not enough drive space overall but enough when you take into account the application's currently installed size while subtracting out the Data and plugins directories.
  • Multi-Installer combined into main installer based on a single switch (commenting out a single line switches to single installer mode)
  • Support for config file reading and writing
  • Hover description added to main app with multi-install
  • No NSIS compile warnings
  • Language selection included included as simple define

This should fix all known issues and make the installer easier to use.

0.9.9.9: Minor update to take version number out of developer editable area

0.9.9.10: Add plugin installer capabilities

0.9.9.11: Fix bug in plugin installer free space calculation

Sorry it took an extra day but I was planning on releasing it with the Firefox 3.0.1 test build which I've been having some issues with.

Great

I was thinking, perhaps it would be possible to put another warning saying the previous warning and this warning isn't a warning to worry over Blum
BTW is the installer generator written in delphi or NSIS? (and does it compile it for you?)
I think since I have so much extra time and most of it can't be on the computer, I'll try to think up of a system that'll better integrate the installers... (But the main one I'm thinking of now is to have the silentinstall switch activated if the menu is used to install and let it send calls to the menu so that there's a more integrated UI for the platform).

All Of It

It creates the installer code and compiles it for you based on simple INI entries in appinfo.ini. It's written in NSIS.

The silent installer will be coming after that and will be silent when run from the updater within the Platform but not from the menu.

So it includes NSIS Portable and executes it with the paramaters basically? Or does it do something else?

Not Quite

It's not quite a full-blown NSIS install. It's just what's necessary to compile and the associated plugins for the installer only.

Can't compile the new

Can't compile the new installer when trying to create installer for CodeBlocks Portable, but it does recompile correctly for Filezilla Portable. I get an error on line 325

Nevermind. I solved it. Forgot to comment out the multi installer stuff.

You may want to make note that it is now 2 lines that need to be commented out, instead of just 1

Question...

Can some of the defines be filled out with another constant ${APPNAME} ?
(This would also work for ${VERSION} in ${FILENAME} Wink
(Oh, just wondering, why not just post the installer here? The internet right now is kinda slow... :()

Speaking of advanced installers,

I realized that most installers would now have multiple choice questions. Is this possible? (As for the Updater silent install, perhaps the saved installer settings would be put there so that the silent installer would know what options to use.)

Getting started

Could someone direct me to some resources for working with the installer. I love the apps I get here. I'd like to be able to start giving back to the community, I just need to start off with some Getting Started links.

0.9.9.11 Update - Plugin Installer

I've updated the installer to 0.9.9.11 which adds and refines the ability to use the installer for plugin (Examples: GPG for Thunderbird, GIMP Windows for GIMP, language packs, etc). You simply uncomment the line that switches it to plugin mode (it's in the main editable section up top) and it won't subtract out the current install size when calculating the free space available on the drive and it will look for a PortableApps.comInstallerPlugin.ico icon within the Other\Source directory instead of using the main appicon.ico so the plugin installers can have their own custom icons. It's suggested that you rename PortableApps.comInstaller.nsi to PortableApps.comInstallerPlugin.nsi so that it won't overwrite the main PortableApps.comInstaller.nsi in the Source directory when you install a plugin.

I think this means that everything we currently use except the multi-lingual installer (see Toucan) is now contained within the PortableApps.com Installer, so we're one step closer to 1.0 and public availability for outside releases.

Sounds great ...

... I've finished the new OOo 3 Beta 2 packages on the base of the last installer and will create the next packages on this excellent base.

I'll post the news story for the OOo 3 Beta 2 and set the release on SF on visible in two hours, if You don't send me a stop.

Sounds Good

Sounds good. I'm not sure about Python as the option in OO, but we'll discuss later and not in this topic the merits of it.

I'm already finishing up the 0.10 installer. It splits out the config to a separate file so you don't have to keep cutting and pasting bits with updates. And it lets people create installers without coding (they still need to compile it themselves, though). I'll be posting it later.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
