2,103 downloadsi posted a little batch code a while back on this thread. it was meant to step by step do as the tutorial instructed, nothing more. but as time went by and i created more and more installers i frequently found myself in need of a little extra in terms of options and possibilities. so i threw together a little more complicated batch code to take advantage of some free software to help with the job. some of what it offers: - installation or portable setup - x64 & x86 builds - manages it's own path in system PATH - two convenient entires in the extended context menu - default settings in ini file - config.txt templates in sections of ini file - predefined environment variables for config.txt templates - customized sfx modules and possibility to add as many as you'd like - upx compression of sfx modules before executable creation - 3 ways of selecting a RunProgram / ExecuteFile / AutoInstall > by passing it as a parameter to batch > by using templates and calling them with switches > by a switch that tells the batch to look for a config.txt in the target folder - either way the text in query will always be auto encoded to utf-8 - can run verbose, or silent / hidden - can create all exe binaries from all jobs to one selected folder - can create a .md5 file along with the binary - but most importantly, i.m.o; the !compile.cmd batch and configuring it to hold all your other commands, 3d-party tools, compilers etc to work in pre/post sequence of making the sfx binary. if you get used to it compiling your software and creating a simple installer is done in a jiffy suggestions, are most welcome! you can read the help file here all files + my compressed project can be found here
