PortableNSIS

Is the portable version of NSIS available? I can't seem to find it anywhere. The only link/reference I have found is to portasoft.org, which seems to no longer be in existence.

Thanks.

Language problem

The Framakey one is French and the other is only part of the program.
Do you have a copy of the French one in English?
Thanks

Well

Well my NSISPortable has all the plugins needed to make portable apps or installers (If you use it the way it was originally supposed to be used).

Here is where I got the link from:

And several other sites I found directed me to the first link.

I used internet archive and got this:

But the download link is dead...

I made a launcher for NSIS.
Launcher
After you download the launcher, download the zip archive of NSIS from their Sourceforge Project Page
extract it to the \NSISPortable\App\NSIS directory.

I have sent emails to get permission to include NSIS in the package along with the registry plugin, the findproc plugin and the newadvsplash plugin so it will work with the portableapps installer scripts. Hopefully I will get answers soon.

EDIT: I have permission from two of the plugin authors, hopefully will hear from the others soon.

Cool, but what about the extra plugins?
I couldn't find a license file in the plugin zip files.

EDIT: Never mind, I got permission from the authors except for NewAdvSplash which is just an update to the AdvSplash already included.
And I found the license file in the NSIS package.
I posted the updated file including NSIS and the plugins.

The registry, findproc, and newadvsplash plugins aren't included with NSIS.
There needed to compile the launcher scripts for the apps here.

Sweet! Thanks SmithTech! I searched for about 2 hours last night for NSIS Portable they were either French or didn't work right.

Hey I pulled the old files

I pulled the old files from portasoft.org and made them available at http://claydiffrient.org/portasoft/

Its been quite a while since these were created and/or seen by anyone. I'll leave them up there for the next month or so. If anyone needs to get them for historical or archival purposes feel free.

UPDATE - So this is taking a bit longer on my dial up connection. I will get on high speed tomorrow and actually load them up on there. Check back in about 12-13 hours.

love it but...

First I love the Installer cause its different than the sfx-archives.
Second I love the App cause it makes smaller (40kb instead of 60kb) Apps.
Third you forgot your copyright
Fourth it leaves registry entries:

HKCU\Software\NSIS\MakeNSISWCompressor: ""
HKCU\Software\NSIS\MakeNSISWCompressor: ""

Oh but it IS a sfx archive.
40kb instead of 60kb? what makes 60kb as apposed to 40kb?
My license? All I did was piece together works from others, so their licenses are the only ones that matter.
It shouldn't be leaving registry entries, try deleting the entries and rerunning it.
If their still there, check the launcher source for the HKCU registry entry if it doesn't have it redownload the package from my site, I forgot the HKCU entries in the first release.

Yes

but I like the NSIS-installer like interface.
I didn't mean license. I just didnt find any clue that you are the author of the package. And never mind the registry entries. I think I run regshot before the launcher erased the entries so they came up in the logfile.
It is and was OK.

Yea, I customized it. WinRAR

Yea, I customized it. WinRAR actually has advanced options for that.
As for the license, I didn't see a need for one. Don't really need credit for putting the pieces together.
Cool on the registry, was worried there might be a problem.
