Subject Re: Sources for the windows installer
Date Sat, 28 Aug 2010 13:42:03 GMT
Hi Dave,

I will try this and will let you know if I have problems ...
I have Windows XP with VS2008 Prof. installed on it and will try there.

How about the installer project? Is it also included in the sources?

Cheers
Nikolai
