Great. I did a tla update for axiom--windows--1 on my windows
machine and also started an Axiom build just a few minutes ago.
On this machine the build usually takes about 2 hours. I will
let you know if/when it completes.

It is called NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System). See

I downloaded and installed the 2.03 release.

Yes, this should be quite easy. Of course you need NSIS
installed, then all you need is a script file that describes
the contents of the release. Using this script file the
NSIS "compiler" collects everything and outputs the installable
.exe file.

I can send you the current NSIS script file that I am using
if you like or you can get it by actually doing an install

You will find the script is called


and is in the root of the axiom directory after the install.
