Auto-compile NSI files

3 posts in this topic

I want to add the ability into one of my apps but I don't use NSIS anymore so I don't have the documentation. If anyone has already written this then I would appreciate seeing it. Then I can modify it to work in the app. I don't really feel like installing it again just to get the information. The app that I am working on compiles all portions of an application but it's dependent on what compilers are installed.

For example if my project is written using an AutoIt script + a help project + an Inno Setup script then it's a matter of selecting 3 checkboxes and clicking i button to get a Compiled Autoit script, a Compiled HTML help file and compile the setup program. Right now the only setup compiler it will handle is Inno and I want to add more.

If you are asking what I think you are asking then the following will compile an NSIS script to an exe.

$NSISInstallationFolder = "C:\Program Files\NSIS"

$NSISInstallerFile = "My Program.nsi"

; Create the Installer Package

RunWait($NSISInstallationFolder & "\makensisw.exe """ & @ScriptDir & "\" & $NSISInstallerFile & """")

; Wait for the compiler to close

WinClose("MakeNSISW")

Thanks Stumpii

That will save me from having to re-install NSIS

All I needed was the command string.
