Creating a installer for scenery.

Hi, i've been wanting to create a installer for scenery, but im wondering of how to add simulator detection the best? Would you recommend searching registry for entries for p3d or fsx? or using a different method. Aswell as finding the Scenery.cfg to add my scenery entry into.

Greetings,
Kuba.
 
Hello,
Thanks for that, but im looking to create my own installer as i have a background in programming applications for windows. Just was wondering what my best way of attack was to get the right directories etc.

That link is still very helpfull and thank you very much,

It sounds like a lot of work for little effect. Even if you're at home when it comes to application programming, there's no need to reinvent the wheel. The advantage of using any of the available installers is that all the nitty-gritty stuff is already been taken care of for you. I.e. the compression/decompression of the files, reading/writing registry entries, UAC, dialogs, etc. I'm not at all doubting your ability to create the installer, rather I'd advice against it, because it's wasting your talent on something really trivial :)

As for the correct registry entries, check out this thread:

Unfortunately, I can't help you with the scenery.cfg file. But I'm sure you can figure it out by going through the registry.

Cheers
