PSPP-BUG: PSPP Add/Remove Programs Entry

We have a number of users here at Oxford University who have requested the use of your software, while I’m not familiar with this software myself I’m a great supporter of all open source software projects so very much appreciate your efforts.


Unfortunately it seems like the NSIS installer doesn’t populate the Add/Remove Programs section of the registry which we rely on for auditing purposes. I believe the following keys would be required to add a minimal and functional entry:





"UninstallString"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\PSPP\\Uninstall.exe"

"DisplayIcon"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\PSPP\\bin\\psppire.exe"



To circumvent this I can create a wrapper which writes the registry values during installation and another for uninstallation but if possible I would prefer to fix this for the Windows release. Would it be possible to get a copy of the NSIS installation and uninstallation scripts so that I can try and do this myself? Unless of course it’s trivial for this to be added by one of the team!

Many Thanks,
