Hi, nice additiong, you could have used InnoSetup instead though.

I don't really see the point since a portable installation is already quite 
easy to deal with (minus the PATH part).


The main problem, you have put your finger on, is the age of the current public 
build, and the instability of the current mob branch.

Objet: [Tinycc-devel] Windows distribution/installer

 A few days ago, I started experimenting with just using NSIS to package up
TinyCC as an installer for Windows, which worked out well.  It basically:

* Includes TinyCC Win-64 0.9.27  (Boy would a new release be nice!)
* Includes Win API Headers Full
* Optionally adds TCC (wherever it is installed) to the system path.

A few friends have tested it out and it seems to work for them.


A few comments that came up in discussion was:
1) Are there any issues with this?  Is anyone upset by the idea of a
third-party installer?
2) Is it reasonable to have a non-project-sponsored-installer?  Would TCC
be consider making a first party installer instead?
3) It would be really useful to include some sort of Make, even if
4) It would be nice to include some common single-file headers.

Since TCC is still a daily driver of mine for some in-work and many
outside-of-work projects, I have a lot of interest in this.  I also do a
lot of C stuff publicly, and people always want to know how to install a C
environment.  I just wanted to get the conversation started, to see if
anyone has any opinions.
