TWiki Installer Windows Contrib

I am developing another installation for twiki (an install script this time - not Java. See below for previous version). The result will be an .exe installer. Please write down which options would you like to be able to configure (install dir, download locations modules to install and so on) and I'll try integrating them (the script language I'm using is new to me so I cant't promise that everything will be implemented but I'll make my best). I'l check this page at least once daily or you can write me an e-mail at t_tcholNO_SPAMakov@prosNO_SPAMyst.bg

Please see SVN, http://svn.twiki.org/svn/twiki/trunk/TWikiInstallerWindowsContrib/

There is no package for this yet. If you want help, please see HowDoesTheDEVELOPBranchWork and get yourself a SVN account.

Overview of files in the package

This is a Null Soft Installer (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page) NSI package.

The following is a synthesis of the notes by TodorCholakov, MartinCleaver and MattWilkie. Feel free to improve it.

24/10/2005  09:08               982 install.ini
24/10/2005  11:12             6,949 myscript.nsi
21/10/2005  17:39               423 myscript.vbs
30/10/2005  20:28           121,176 TwikiInstall.rar
24/10/2005  11:12           131,541 twinst.exe
21/10/2005  09:47                63 unattended.txt

myscript.nsi is the source.it is not needed to run the install - I just added it for someone if he/she wants to modify something (but you need NSIS to build it) the twinst.exe is compiled and standalone - doesn't need any external dlls or something to run(actually NSIS is a compiler from nsi scripts to .exe - no need to deploy the compiler itself)

install.ini is a configuration file - what to install and where to download it from. (so you don't need to compile the installer if twiki version changes or perl version changes. Only the PerlDir option doen't work - the problem is in the perl installation that does not accept the TARGETDIR as a parameter. or overrides it.)

myscript.vbs is a helper vbscript that I use to create the twiki site in IIS. I didn't find a way to do this through NSIS so I just call it at the end.

unattended.txt is used when installing IIS.

I change the form and set this to brainstorming since there is no package at this time.

in 2007-2008, I built and released TWikiInstallers for Windows, OSX, and rpm based Linux.
