New version

I hve released version 3.10 of warSetup.

This release goes around the problem in Vista when insufficinet privileges cause Explorer to fail to drop files in WarSetup. It's also tested with the very latest WIX 3 release (from December 2008). I have also fixed a number of minor bugs and added some additional features.

See my warinstall-blog on http://warinstall.jgaa.com for information on my future plans with WarInstall (hint: more features both for power and convenience).... read more

New version

Version 3.05-BETA is released. The new version resolve some minor bugs, but the main news is a feature to save the content to one or several external .cab files. This became a requirement, as warlib (my C++ library) install broke the limit for what wix can store in one .msi file.

I have used this release for C and C++ libraries, C++ applications and C# applications, from a new hundred kbytes to several gigabytes (uncompressed). It seems to get the job done :)
