Packager for PC



  • @TNTHM Command Line Interface. If you run HISE from a terminal with the -h option you'll see a help menu that lists all of the possible commands.



  • @d-healey before I saw your reply I found something called NSIS. It is a packager like the one you recommended but I was unable to set the file path for VST installation. Because of this it means that the end user would have to enter the correct pathway for installation.

    I understand that on a Windows VST's are installed at C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins. Is this correct?

    Is there a way to set the installation destination for the VST with packager you recommended?



  • There is usually a default path but most installers allow the user to select the destination. Inno Setup gives the user the choice I think.



  • Ooh this would be useful later, Ill check out NSIS and Packager.



  • @d-healey I don't mind if the user has the choice of where to install it. In Packages it lets me set the default instillation location and then allows the user to manually select a different location if they want to. On NSIS it defaults to the desktop or something unhelpful like that and I can't set the path to something more useful. I'm looking for a Windows packager that will allow me to set a default installation location which the user can then manually change if they choose to.

    Currently I would need to provide the user with installation pathway to copy and paste in. It is one extra step where people could make a mistake, so in the name of easy to use software I am trying to eliminate that step.

    I'll check out Inno. Thank you for the tip!

    you're probably on your own with NSIS - most people here seem to use Inno

    You can do this with INNO



  • @dustbro thanks for letting me know. I’m going to ditch NSIS and make the switch to Inno!



  • The CLI command to create the Inno template is create-win-installer you can also add options [-a:x64|x86] [-noaax] [-rlottie]



  • @d-healey wow that’s super convenient. Thank you.
