NSIS advantages over Install Shield?
I am new to install system world. I am evaluation 2 options for my software's installer. NSIS and Microsoft's Install Shield. My requirements are very basic:
- Registry entries for XP and Vista 32/64 bit platforms.
- File system driver installation.
- Making installations for other than Windows OS.
I know 3rd one is not possible in both. But if there is any option known, please let me know.
Considering above requirements, what all seems to be a good option for me, considering I am new to this install system world. Will NSIS scripting be worth doind for above requirements than wizard based InstallShield. If yes, then what advantages t has.
Thanks & Regards
