Compiling an NSIS Script on a Web Server

I have a very simple installation script that places a few files in specific directories on the user's PC. I have been running this successfully for a long time on my PC, but I would like to automate the process so that the installation file is created on my website.

I have studied the NSIS documentation, read the Wiki, and searched the forum, but can find nothing about this.

My website is on GoDaddy.com (on a shared server) and I use php. Here is what I would like to do.
  1. Create the user files on the server
  2. Run MakeNSIS on the server to bundle the files into an installation executable
  3. Send the user an email with a link to the installation routine
I can do #1 and #3, but I cannot find any guidance on #2. Has anyone done this or something like it?

Thanks,

I asume you talk about a linux machine, right? One way would be to have wine installed on this machine. Then you can run the makensis compiler through wine.

But this can only work if you have enough permissions on the machine to install software and run shell scripts.

You can compile on POSIX systems

Would you mind share a working example?
