Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2015-02-05 13:51:55 CET
We are currently using NSIS 2.X. One problem is that it cannot be built for Windows x64. This has been solved with the 3.0 version, which is currently in beta. We should eventually upgrade.
Comment 1 Peter Åstrand cendio 2016-01-05 14:41:32 CET
NSIS 3.0 Beta 3 has been released:


My guess is that it is good enough for us.
Comment 2 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2017-05-30 13:57:14 CEST
NSIS 3.0 was released July 25, 2016.

NSIS 3.01 was released December 11, 2016.

Comment 4 Pierre Ossman cendio 2020-10-27 12:47:24 CET
Right now we have a universal installer for Windows that automatically selects 32-bit or 64-bit ThinLinc client. That means the installer needs to be 32-bit in order to work everywhere.

This will be interesting in a future when we've dropped 32-bit support.
