    Question msi package for latest inkscape?

    Has anyone already created an msi package for the latest inkscape release that they'd be willing to share with myself and edugeek at large?

    We've had msi packages available to potentially simplify software installation and removal for Windows network admins since Win2K so is it just me who wonders why so many (big name) open source programs that are available for Windows totally neglect to have msi packages on their download pages?

    I don't want to sound ungrateful as that's certainly not the case but if you can code something as complex as Inkscape or FireFox surely creating an msi isn't asking too much? Its an excellent method of maximising ease of installation, program 'accessibility' and the overall userbase- hence more testers and developers. Additionally, people are more likely to trust an msi packages from the original authors over a third parties package.

    Win win surely?

    I just made an msi for it with wininstall-lt unfortunately it totally fails to work with the security on our pupil accounts. the msi is like 200mb so wont be able to send it to you either.
