Helm - standalone / vst / vst3 virtual synthesizer

Hi there!

I recently discovered this cool synthesizer: http://tytel.org/helm/

The problem is, the installer creates a whole bunch of folders here and there which is messy, in my opinion, for such a simple app.

The synth is free and open source (under GNU license I think).
The source: https://github.com/mtytel/helm

Here is a list of folders the installer creates:

Standalone - C:\Program Files\Helm\helm.exe (default)
VST - C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins (default)
VST3 - C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Helm\helm.vst3
Local Presets - C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\helm\patches
Factory Presets - C:\Program Files\Helm\Patches
Config File - C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\helm\Helm.config

My ideal scenario would be just to have vst and vst3 files and a single "data" folder so I can just copy paste it to my DAW's vst folder. I don't need the standalone .exe that much, buy maybe is should be there for completeness of the package.

I hope someone would be interested to help me with this.

Anyone?

Anyone?

Perhaps someone can at least asses how hard it will be to compile the source files into a portable .zip archive?
