GrapeVine Voice: Installer Again

When I published this post, I did not expect ISPP changed most of things easily.

What is ISPP?

ISPP is Inno Setup Pre-Processor. From its name you can guess what it does. Yep, it preprocesses your script and then builds the installer. In this way, ISPP provides you so many macros and build-in functions which free you from writing error prone Pascal scripts.

Changes

Now I use marcos to store version information and other strings. Thus, every time I need to create an installer, only a few changes are required. When I release 6.0 M5, you can check up the new Inno Setup script for details. Also you need to install Inno Setup QuickStart Pack instead of Inno Setup.

Limitation

Although ISPP solves a lot of problems, it is hard to write my own functions in its language. It is not similar to Pascal but C/C++. Luckily right now I do not need to do some customization here.

I am still planning about M5 because a plan is not yet finished. Stay tuned.
