Nullsoft Scriptable Install System 2.42

| geschrieben von Dr. Sooom
Nullsoft Scriptable Install System (NSIS) wird von Nullsoft entwickelt, die u.a. den Installer für ihren Winamp nutzen. Folglich ermöglicht NSIS das erstellen von Installer zu eigenen Programmen und es lassen sich u.a. Startmenü-Einträge und Registrywerte setzen. Weiters kann der Installer komprimiert werden. Die einfache Benutzeroberfläche des Editors soll den Einstieg für Gelegenheitsnutzer erleichtern.
