    NSIS: Nullsoft Scriptable Install System

    I haven't been able to try this but I will try to make time to try it at work in the coming week.

    From the website:

    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 succesful 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.
    It occurred to me that it might be useful as another method of distributing software around the network?

    I used it to repackage VLC. I must say it was by far the easiest custom install of any software i have ever used!

    Out of interest... How much experience/knowledge do you need to get yourself up and running to use it successfully?

    Just very aware that time is sorely limited at present but it would be useful.
