Elegant Package and Deployment of applications has been the concern of people for long time. With the advent of Visual Studio, there was an easy 'Package and Deployment Wizard' with Microsoft Visual Basic. Then with Visual Studio .NET, there came, 'Setup and Deployment Wizard' project, which makes Package and Deployment a breeze.

But whilst searching in Google, I just came across this simple tool called NSIS -- NullSoft Scriptable Installation System, available from

Well! This comes under Open Source license. The beauty is an EXEcutable is made by simply writing a script file, which is so simple like our Windows/DOS batch files or Unix Shell Scripts. I was just browsing through NSIS website and it seems it also supports a wide spectrum of User Interfaces.

Perhaps, if someone was looking for a Scriptable Installation System, where one needs to put custom Scripting, than application supplied wizards, they can give a try to NSIS. Is'nt it?
