How to make your own setup.exe for Rainmeter?

Post by bendenfield »

Is there a program wich can be used to make your own setups like some other Rainmeter skins have?
I tried 'Inno Setup' but the included wizard doesn't have the possibility to install certain files in different folders.

So, here's what the program should be capable of:
  • -install into different, user relative paths
    -design your own GUI for the setup.exe
    -ask for administrative rights if needed
I also thought about scripting it with AutoIt, but I have no idea how to do this. So, if there is someone here who already did it with AutoIt, could he please post his script?

Thank you in advance :p

This is fully scriptable so you can have it do anything you want. The only thing that it may not do is allow a fully custom installer GUI. It will be more of a standard Windows Installer look, although you can tweak the look some with some "skins" that use different images and colors.

NSIS would be a good program for that.

Edit: JSMorley was faster :|
