The installer is updated to svn revision 6920. All plugins were included, and the glitch that impacted the usability of the Spellchecker plugin is fixed in this version. The download link was updated in the first post of the thread. :)
nice package!!

And I suggest:
1, maybe, you can add portable c::b, see :http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,10360.msg93976.html#msg93976
2, maybe, you can host the package in Google project host site, or other site, the current site need to wait for at least 30 seconds is not so good as I see.

thanks.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

BTW:
I just find in the log:(I install this package under E:\CodeBlocks)
Quote
SpellChecker: Thesaurus files 'E:\CodeBlocks\share\CodeBlocks\SpellChecker\th_en_US.idx' not found!

Also, to let it use portable way, I think the path here:
File:ConfigureSpellChecker.png

can be configured by:
something like:
$(XXXX)\share\CodeBlocks\SpellChecker\th_en_US.idx

note the XXXX can be a C::B's script variable. :D

Thank you for the encouragement! :)

I'll open a project page in Google Code, and upload my inno setup script there, along with the setup file. Maybe you could make use of the script for your nightly builds?

I'll look into the possibility of an option for a portable installation too.

I ommited *.idx files to reduce installer size. If you consider them essential to the spellchecker, I can include them, or even more languages, in a future release.

We had just switched away from InnoSetup towards NSIS for the ease of creating a flexible installer. I doubt that we will switch back again.

Question of mine: Why didn't you choose NSIS in the first place by adopting the existing installer for the releases?

See: http://svn.berlios.de/wsvn/codeblocks/setup, namely the file setup.nsi.

I didn't know you had moved to NSIS. I chose Inno Setup from a habit of making simple installers for my backups a while ago, and remember seeing the inno script in the svn a while ago, so I considered it logical to stick with Inno at the time.

I'll need to learn nsis scripting, but if like you say, it is better for setting setup options, then it will be worth the extra effort.
UPDATE: Indeed it is. I can understand NSIS scripting, and am in the process of adapting the official installer. :)

EDIT: Files are now hosted in Google Code. The download link was updated accordingly.

Bumping to warn you:

The unofficial installer has been updated to svn revision 6927. Now using NSIS, based on the script used for the official 10.05 release (plugins are now installed optionally)! The link to the download is in the first post. :)

Cool. Do you provide the (NSIS) sources somewhere, too?!

Just commited :)

While adapting the script, I made very few changes:

*Updated the NSIS plugin Modern UI to mui2.nsh (more flexible).
*Added a question in the end of the uninstallation, asking the user if he wishes to delete the application data.
*Added Abbreviations plugin, it seemed to be missing from the release installer.
*Updated installed files and available plugins to match nightly builds. Notably, wxscintilla is now compiled statically and wxpropgrid is an sdk dependency.
*Added the extra plugins: cbDiff, ColorCoder, FileManager, PowerShell, SpellChecker, XPMEditor.

Hope you find this useful.

I just made a very quick update. There was a mistake with SpellChecker (mea culpa) that's fixed now though.
More importantly, Portable C::B is now included in this installer! Check it out on the first post.

Congratulations ptDev, your installers should be featured on main site to promote CodeBlocks. Not everybody checks the forums for the nightlys, and people nowadays care about up to date software, but they prefer installation to binary-only, and these installers keep it simple. Keep up the good work!
hum, I wonder what country are you from... portugal maybe?

Is it that obvious? [Removed non-English content. This forum is English only, without exceptions - sorry.] :)

Hi ptDev,

I love your work:-)

I beleive you made some changes to some of the plugins to make them compile?

If this is correct then maybe you can figure out why the FileManager crashes when I navigate into a deeper path in the "Files" tab.

Here is the stack dump:
