Hello all,

I'm writing to find out what everyone is doing when they install dll files. This seems to be a basic need of almost any installer, so I'm surprised that NSIS doesn't have it incorporated yet. I really like this installer, so I would like to get this feature incorporated somehow. I read the post that suggested creating a separate executable to check the version and then create a file called newer.txt if necessary. NSIS could then check to see if the newer.txt file exists and then perform the correct action.

While this solution works, I feel that it's very inefficient. Are there any plans to add version checking? I saw some code to do this in the form of a patch file a while back, but I can't find it anywhere. Plus, I'm not sure how to apply a patch to source files in Visual C++.
