I like making installers, I really do as I’ve had to keep telling myself all week. But as something that needs to be done to get one step closer to a beta release of WACUP then it’s something that now needs to be sorted out albeit at the expense of getting the plug-ins and loader finished off.
So after making last weeks update, I’m not sure why but I had the urge to tackle the installer properly instead of using the super basic one I’d already created that just bundled up the files to get a rough idea of what the size WACUP only files would be in an installer.
My aim is for things to be simple enough to get a full Winamp+WACUP install as well as just a WACUP update only option (more useful for beta testing), So I’ve been working through replicating enough of the original Winamp installer script to achieve both scenarios (with the biggest pain being to ensure that relevant plug-in dependencies are correctly handed)..
So that’s it for this week’s update and hopefully by the time of next week’s update I’ll have finished this installer work off so I can get back onto normal coding :)
