Our company(small company) had used GNUstep application internally. The application is installed using Install Shield generated set up file but basically it just copies all files to "FIXED" location(in our case, C:\EOS) and I did make some modification so that instead of environment variable, registry values are used. Also, during install the set up application appends path environment variable (C:\EOS \Tools). Final modification is all user profile ($HOME/GNUstep like thing) is under C:\EOS\Profile\%USERNAME%. And added gdomap, gdnc, gpbs to the Startup group so that it be started before using GNUstep application.

Hope this can help.

Curiously my GNUstep product works well on my computer.
I build a new test machine (with a newly formatted WindowsXP install) and it just doesn't work (crash when I call [NSColor whiteColor])

As a matter of test I 'installed' GNUstep with the old GNUstep installer. And while I was able to run a program from the MSys command line if I try to run it from dos (equivalent to the users clicking the program's icon) it fails to run.

Beside when I looked into NSPathUtilites I see that 'GNUstep' is hard coded, that might be the reason why, after successfully ruun from the command line a new GNUstep directory is created on C:. This is not acceptable and I try to fix it by setting all environment variables which seems appropriate, but non of them fixed the problem :-(

pff...
jsut to ask if someone as an experience of a successfull windows install and would like to share it. By that I don't mean follows this link: http://wwwmain.gnustep.org/resources/documentation/User/ GNUstep/README.MinGW

But more like something I could set up with my installer/ application, cick on one button and everything is set!
