> It depends if it's any good... I can say that I like it a lot. It's simple yet powerfull. For one thing it stores all the options in a single, human readable text file so your setup "project" is way more easy to maintain and takes less space. In the numbers it's our InstallShield project of 768,217 bytes in 36 files in 25 directories replaced with a single InnoSetup script file of 3,861 bytes. Makes you wondering what's wrong with InstallShield people and how are they getting away with it... Another thing is that InnoSetup understands what it means to "compress" the files. Even thought I added one additional MFC dll (nearly a 1MB in size) the size of the compiled setup package was still smaller than that of InstallShield (2,738,150 vs 2,523,917). Makes you thinking that InstallShield is tar-ing the files instead of zipping them actually ;) >I do some things that need installer support. I am sure that virtually anything can be done with the additional scripting support available for InnoSetup... >Plus I prefer the more 'professional' look of IS. InnoSetup looks just as good to me ;) > I'll have a look, though. I suggest to get the latest beta for testing, create a basic script file with it, and then download the ISTool for editing of the InnoSetup script file. ISTool offers nice and easy to use GUI interface.
