Alternative Clients / [Windows] NRS Installer
« on: February 22, 2015, 10:31:42 am »
Hi Nxt-ers,

As some of you may know, I've been testing/discussing and working on windows installers (which also is my dayjob). I've done this with the idea in mind to make the crypto world a little userfriendly and give it a more professional look and feel. At least for the installer, as that's the first hurlde to take for a new user.

I know the nxt devs are working very hard on loads of things and one of them is a nice installer. By the looks of things, it will take some time though before it can/will be released. In the mean time I did see some people asking for an installer as soon as possible.

So, as I finally sort of finished (is it ever really finished?) my script to generate a windows installer from the .zip that's delivered by Jean Luc, I'd like to offer this windows installer for the time being.

This is what the installer does:
- Installs the nxt files exactly like the ones delivered in the .zip from Jean Luc, to the location given during the setup screens.
- It also installs the Java Runtime files in that location (that's why the installer is a bit bigger than the .zip). A seperate Java installation is not needed.
- By default the shortcuts will be installed to startmenu and desktop, but you can choose not to do that.
- The nxt.properties will be installed to %AppData%. This is a per user location, so different people can run their own settings on one computer.
- By default the blockchain databaselocation will be %AllUsersProfile% (unless it already finds a nxt.properties from one of my earlyer installers), but you can set it to a different location during the setup screens if you like.
- On uninstall, the blockchain and nxt.properties will be left behind, so you will not loose your settings and you will not have to download the blockchain again with every new version.

Have a look for yourself:
My current Template folder to create the MSI's, including the last msi's I produced. (Please remember I'm not a programmer, so I'm already embarrased about the "code", no need to burn me down on that):

Experimental MSI:
This is not only the Experimental version of NRS. The MSI itself also has a new feature that needs testing. On the Database location screen there's a checkbox wether or not to download the Blockchain provided by peerexplorer.com. I have not found the ultimate solution for it yet, but for now it works, I guess. The cancel button during the download and unpack action doesn't work though. Once the download starts, you'll have to wait for it to complete.
If your windows does NOT use "." for decimal and "," for thousands, then don't use the download option. The script doesn't work correct and will wait forever.

I will try to update this post as soon as possible when I see a new version appear.
Feel free to ask any questions, as long as they have something to do with the installer.


As the devs provide their own installer now, I stopped making the msi installer. To make sure there's no cunfusion, I removed the links to the downloads.

When I try to PM someone all I get is a white screen. Anyone else have that too?
