After a long time. I'm trying to figure out the current build process
of gephi, so you will see lot of questions from me here in the coming
days. :-) For a start, I thought to explore Windows installer creation
These are the steps involved, as I understood from gephi-0.8.iss
Getting input for Destination Directory and Group Name.
Getting input for shortcut creation and file associations.
Copying files to destination directory
Creating short cuts & launchers
Modifying Registry values (Please explain to me what is been done here
except setting file associations.)
Deleting already existing config files.
Please add if I missed any. I would like to know are there any
specific reasons for specifically selecting 'InnoSetup'. I just asked
cz I found a cross platform solution IzPack which creates Windows &
MacOSX application bundles directly from jars.
BTW I have added my GSoC proposal to a wikipage here. Please let me
know your suggestions about my approach.
