- The ISS files (Inno) do not seem up to date.Is anybody having a ISS
version of the installer which works for 2.3.4?
I have been working on and off on an Inno-Setup installer for the MinGW compiled Python I've been working on. The reason being I have Win98 so the Msi.py approach does not work.
The script is still not finished, nor is it identical to setup script found in the Python 2.3.4 sources. Moreover, it does not make any registry entries yet, which I am thinking and hoping of doing either through a Python script (which runs after install is finished and before uninstall is started) or an external DLL so as to be able to revert changes.
But even in its current unfinished form, the script works for me in that it gathers all of the needed Python 2.3.4 files into one package and offers to install Python and Python's extensions, and uninstalls the files as needed. All the regrtest tests pass when Python 2.3.4 is installed from that script.
One can run Python's scripts from the DOS Shell and if file association is urgently needed then hints from the Python.iss found in the original Python source distribution can be of immediate help.

PS: I have pymingw.py which is enclosed in the zip file where I have python23.dll and friends. It will be picked up by the script from there and placed in site-packages for use when uninstalling Python.
