Inno Setup is a free installer for Windows programs. First introduced in 1997, Inno Setup today rivals and even surpasses many commercial installers in feature set and stability.
* Windows 7 change:
o Added new [Icons] section flag: excludefromshowinnewinstall. Prevents a Start menu entry for a newly installed application shortcut from receiving a highlight on Windows 7 (or later). Ignored on earlier Windows versions.
* Compiler IDE change:
o Changed shortcut for Edit | Complete Word to Alt+Right (but still recognize Ctrl+Space). Reportedly, Ctrl+Space conflicts with the Chinese IME.
o Inno Setup Preprocessor: #include handling of '.' and '..' now treats such filenames as relative to the directory containing the current file, not to the current directory (which is undefined).
o On the 5.4.1 Unicode compiler, trying to build a multi-language installer while running under a DBCS code page could unexpectedly result in "Illegal null character" errors.
o On Unicode, string-type parameters passed to BeforeInstall and AfterInstall functions were being converted to ANSI.
