What does the 2.1 installer install?
« on: May 23, 2008, 09:34:32 PM »
I would make an installer for the 2.4 series (with some simple example bots which actually work ) with NSIS but I don't know what goes on in the installer. Does anyone have any clue what things it sets up?

I think this is on Eric's to do list.  The installer adds a bunch of VB run times libraries to the system32 directory (and sets up the whole file structure in C:\Program Files\DarwinbotsII\ of course).  But we're not entirely sure what the list of dependencies are (not that hard to determine, just haven't gotten around to it).  Also, a new install should probably include a bunch of the current robots in the beastiary, and maybe some sample simulations or two, but no one's spent the time to gather up the bots are create some interesting settings files.

Realistically, I will not get around to making a new installer for several months at least.   If you were to do this, that would be very much appreciated.
Many beers....
