View Full Version : NSIS Workbench Updates for Future?

Anybody know if the NSIS workbench program will be upgraded for the latest version of NSIS? If not, what is the "next best program" for easily creating installers?
Thanks for the help. :)

I don't know. Altought it's a cool editor.
Did you search at this (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/archive/nsisweb.php?page=8&instances=0) Web Archive

NSIS Workbench is the best one I'm aware of, and unfortunately (in my opinion) the rest don't come close.
To be honest though even NSIS Workbench isn't necessary, all you need is a decent text editor that supports NSIS syntax highlighting (there are many, e.g. Scite, Crimson to name a couple) and the HTML NSIS docs open in another window, and leave makensisw running and just hit compile now and again...

I like the free "myDevStudio for NSIS" editor. It knows about NSIS 2 (it was updated in March 2003). It has systax highlighting, folding, autocomplete etc.
The only problem I've come across so far is that it crashes immediately after I print anything - the hard copy seems to be OK but the program disappears. (So I never use the "Print" feature).
You can download it from http://www.vvvsoft.com/download.html (the site also has some screenshots etc)

NSIS Workbench will not be updated by the original author, but it's open-source, so anyone can update it.
I think what we need is a good wizard that supports NSIS 2 / Modern UI. Hopefully the next Slate Blue version will have that.

I think NSIS should use Modern UI as standard :)

Thanks for the help. Slate Blue looks like it will have lots of features. I hope they release it soon. :)
