Hi VVVV regulars,
I did some research about how VVVV can be packed as one setup.exe that includes all the dependencies and basically makes the installation process suitable for real end-users. Something that you want in some cases.
So first I wanted to do it myself with NSIS (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page).
But getting into the scripting language of NSIS is a bit time consuming and I hardly find that time - as it is always a personal wish but not a 100% requirement in a project.
But I found someone who is pro with that scripting language and he made an offer for 800 Dollar to make a reusable script that features:
- Pack all the .exe dependencies like DirectX and .Net etc in this installer
- Check if it is allready installed - if so do not install the dependencies
- Pack the Project Folder inside the setup
- Ask where to install
- Create a Shortcut with Icon to a .batch or .v4p file
The installer can be created via commandline, so a module with a ShellExecute could pack your VVVV Project ready to ship and versioning would be easy.
So I wanted to ask if some one is interested and want to chip in some bucks to just get it done and make it a public script/module.
