For those who use the Nullsoft installer (NSIS) and know Python...
I have written a small plugin that allows simple execution of Python code
during the setup.
Supported commands are eval, exec and execFile. a special module nsis is
exposed to Python which supports writing to the log, display a message box
and get/set the NSIS variables. The win32 parent handle of the installer
can also be read so its open for extensions that use win32all or ctypes.
yeah. i know you could also "ExecWait 'python x.py'" (on some systems) but
the plugin is easier and you can write to the log ;-)
It's also a nice thing if you need a very simple GUI, but want to evaluate
the data with a real programming language.
