View Full Version : Upgrading from MUI to MUI2?

is there an easy way to upgrade a MUI-based installer with multiple features (one extra page, language selection, ...) to MUI2?
I doubt changing the "include" line is enough...

The short answer: changing the include line is enough.
The long answer, taken from the readme (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Docs/Modern%20UI%202/Readme.html): To upgrade a Modern UI 1.8 script, you should: Insert the MUI2.nsh header file instead of MUI.nsh. The macros for InstallOptions have been moved to a separate header file unrelated to the Modern UI. If you are still using InstallOptions for custom pages, insert InstallOptions.nsh and use the INSTALLOPTIONS_* macros instead of the MUI_INSTALLOPTIONS_* macros. The macros itself have remained the same. Rewrite customization code for the Modern UI 1.8 welcome and finish pages in which the InstallOptions INI file is used. nsDialogs commands should be used instead. Use the standard NSIS method to escape special characters in all texts. For example, $\r$\n creates newline.

Ah, thanks! :)
I followed the upgrade (from MUI 1.8 to MUI 2) instructions here and it went well.
However, I couldn't notice any visible/visual differences in the my reslutant setup.exe.
After researching a little more, I discovered the following thread which explains the differences between MUI1 and MUI2:
Nice discussion :up:
