Cool New tool - Install Designer

Hello community.

I would like to introduce my new tool called Install Designer - an application for fast and easy creating on Inno Setup and NSIS dialogs.



See more details on official page: http://www.install-designer.com

Cool looking installer with custom design: www.graphical-installer.com
I offer NSIS scripting, C/C++/C#/Delphi programming: www.unsigned.sk
Develop NSIS projects in Visual Studio 2005-2019: www.visual-installer.com
or RAD Studio 2009, 2010, XE-10.3 Rio: www.rad-installer.com

Does it support dialog units? Everything except icon/image controls should default to dialog units.

I will update that, now it defaults to pixels for each control.

Hi, T.Slappy! An interesting and necessary development, but ...

Very buggy application. It is impossible to properly create a dialogue, errors constantly pour in. Very similar to alpha release, but not final. Very sorry.









And What? Each time you run these messages. Changing the settings does not work (turn off the update, specify the path to the compilers). Nothing. When starting again and again, an error...

Remarks:

1) When creating a new project, you need to constantly choose between NSIS and Inno Setup. On the toolbar, you can make two buttons: Create NSIS and Create Inno. It is very simple and there is no need to make unnecessary movements. I can immediately choose which project to create.



2) When creating events for the Inno Setup project, a complete procedure line is added, unlike the NSIS project, where only the event name is added.

For Inno Setup (bad)


For NSIS (good)


3) When switching between the project tabs in the script preview panel, the contents do not change according to the selected panel. It is very uncomfortable. To see the scenario, you need to change the property of the control or move it.



4) Properties panel. Cannot specify multiple parameters for a property. For example. Property Anchor. I select several options:



But only one gets into the property !?


5) Instant compilation of the project in the TEMP folder when changing any property or moving the control on the form ?! Because of this, the program is terribly freezed. I think that compilation should be (and I think it is correct) only after the user gives the command (click Compile+Run or Usage button).

6) Settings dialog: Cancel button does not work. To close the dialog, click [x] in the dialog header. Very uncomfortable.

I still have a lot of remarks because of which I will not recommend your program for use.

Hello Kriggi.

I recommend you to run the application as Administrator.

That will solve most of your issues.
As you can see you do not have appropriate rights so the application cannot write the configuration into file (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder) so this is an issue with your User account, not the problem in the app.

We are working on new version so we will consider your ideas:
  • Separate buttons for new NSIS / Inno Setup script: there is already button for creating new dialog in toolbar (From our analysis the most users create up to 4 dialogs at start and then work with them)
  • Switching the tab with immediate script refresh is a good idea.
  • We will reconsider immediate script compiling - apparently it is not suitable for a slower computers.
  • Issues with Properties panel (bug) - will be fixed.

    I will let you know here when the new version is released.

    Regards and Merry Christmas!

Ideally applications should store their configuration in %AppData% and not require admin rights.
