Hi All,

Is there an MSI version available.  Looking to deploy to multiple computers using either group policy or PDQ Deploy.  Found one at https://sourceforge.net/projects/msi-repository/files/CodeBlocks/SVN%20build%20rev.%203915 but it seems to be very old and doesn't have mingw along with it.

Thanks in advance

Nope, I think we're using the NSIS and I don't think anyone has done anything about msi installer recently.

No Idea; but, WiX looks like a possible tool to do it.

http://www.exemsi.com/ might be an easy way to use our nsis-(exe-)installer and convert it to msi.
