Hi,

Fantastic work! I received a free license for the cross-platform installer from the guys of Bitrock, specifically for the purpose of making a multi platform installer for Arduino. If you want to use it, I could forward it to you.

Well, some of the features are exclusive for Windows (and I am pretty happy since like hundred years using Inno Setup smiley-yell) so I am not sure if that will benefit the product.

Thanks anyway!

BTW I am finishing and testing the second release with few changes:

What is the difference between this ERW and the arduino software zip file 90.2 MB ?
I have installed this ERW today for Uno 3. I need that arduino software also ?

No, you do not need the 90 mb one. I trimmed the official one  smiley-lol

Hi,

I think the idea of a windows setup.exe is a good one, I do something similar myself, http://www.kicchip.co.uk/download/arduino/1.0.1/setup.exe but yours seems to have more features than mine.

One reason I used an installer was so that the installation path could be stored in the windows registry, that way my other software knows where to look for all the arduino related files. Is that a feature you could add to your setup so I could use yours instead?

P.S I use inno for my setup.

Well, what specifically you need? Because as this package includes an installer you can always get the path from
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\<Wow6432Node for x64 machines>\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{APP GUID FROM INNO SCRIPT}_is1

In this package the GUID I used is:
Code:
8220E838-DFF3-45AA-B338-EC34684489EA

And I will use that one forever. smiley

Thanks for the info, I'm on my laptop so can't check the key I was writing to exactly, but basically I was storing the arduino IDE version as the key and the exectable path for arduino.exe for that version

"Registry Key"/Arduino/Version/1.0.1.0    ExePath     "C:\ProgramFiles\Arduino1.0.1

My applications need to be able to scroll through all versions of installed arduino so a key is created for each install as above.

Well, I am not particulary fan of adding things to registry. In fact I haven't added anything in the setup extra to any directory or registry rater than the ultra-required one, like unninstaller.

I am sure that you have more than enough info in the registry to autodetect last version  smiley-lol

Thanks for the screenshot, I need all installed versions not just the latest, when you run your setup for the next version of Arduino (maybe 1.0.1.a or something) will it produce a second set of data as per the first screenshot, or will it overwrite that information? If it produces a second set of data for 1.0.1.a then that should be ok for me. I can see why you would want to avoid writing to the registry, it is not something I do often myself.

Sorry, you are already on 1.0.1.a so please apply the previous question to 1.0.1.b (I am 1 version behind you)

Yes, it is always updated to last version. In fact most apps you can find do this (or the app itself keeps the HKCU structure updated on every run).

OK thanks, I'll have to stick with what I have for the moment then, my application needs to be able to scroll through all Arduino versions and directories, users need to be able to install older Arduino versions alongside newer versions, so overwriting the current installation info won't work for me but would be fine for everyone else I guess, cheers, Mike
