How do I find user-friendly interface dev tool

I am new to this product having used InstallShield for 10 years. I see screen sample of a graphical interface for Nullsoft Install but I don't know how to get into it. Can someone explain how to start things? Thanks.

I like HM NIS Edit.

But there's a list of dev environments on the Wiki. Google "NSIS" and the Wiki is the first thing that pops up. Go to the Development Center and you'll find a link for Development Environments.

Edit: Removed links.

I use TextPad 5 with my own syntax highlight definitions. Basically it just depends on personal preference and experience.

I think you need a more comprehensive answer.
Nsis provides a set of standard pages available.
These are:
- welcome page
- license page
- install dir page
- components selection page
- install progress page
- finish page

Other pages/dialogs can be written using NSDialog plugin.
HMEdit or Eclipse plugin for NSIS provide a WYSIWYG interface to design these custom dialogs.

Take a look to the modern UI manual and to the standard examples provided to see how to 'activate' and customize the standard pages.
In the examples you can find some custom dialogs also.

Hope this helps.
Stefano

conversion

Thanks much. I am used to a one-source solution; but, I can adapt. Do you know if there is a conversion from Installshield Express?

No, there are no source converters.
