NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) is a professional open source system to create Windows installers. It is designed to be as small and flexible as possible and is therefore very suitable for internet distribution.
Being a user's first experience with your product, a stable and reliable installer is an important component of successful software. With NSIS you can create such installers that are capable of doing everything that is needed to setup your software.
NSIS is script-based and allows you to create the logic to handle even the most complex installation tasks. Many plug-ins and scripts are already available: you can create web installers, communicate with Windows and other software components, install or update shared components and more.
NSIS 2.42 is released. This release includes a new simpler and more powerful
plug-in API, vastly improved and thoroughly tested version of WinVer.nsh, and
disposes of two great evils - /NOUNLOAD and useful header functions usage
declaration. As usual and especially for the holiday season, the customary
collection of bug fixes and minor improvements is also included free of charge.
* Merry Christmas and a happy Hanukkah!
* Plug-in developers should check out the new plug-in API in
Examples\Plugin and convert their plug-ins, especially in case they
require staying loaded.
