[REBOL] Re: [SDK] Installer

Hi Maarten,

BTW, another very usefull feature is the generation of a shortcut (*.lnk) into the start menu, desktop, etc... with the option to choose the profile (all users, particular user,...). But I think you already knew this ;-)

IMHO, the two can be usefull: * per user, if you want to restrict the distribution (which is kept into a central serveur) by holding control on who is allowed to install, changing password when an installation has been done - what we do. I this option, I should find _very_ usefull the possibility of unabling the installer after a certain amount of installations - protecting it against unallowed copies. * per installer, for a sell-and-forget, when you distribute your software + the utilisation rights - that is a serial number (see the approach of Setup Factory). Just my 5 (euro-)cents thoughts... Thanks for asking :) ==christophe
