Standalone installer
Hi,

I created a standalone installer (using Inno Setup) for the D compiler for 
Windows. Its size is 3,980 KB.

It automatically copies all required files to C:\DMD (including all required 
tools), adds the \bin directory to the PATH environment variable, refreshes 
that variable and creates a program group that features a link to the 
official compiler homepage and an uninstall icon.

As much as I love D, installing it is an unneccessary hassle (the download 
links are also hard to find, there should be a big "DOWNLOAD" button IMHO).

Is anyone willing to host it? I'd be willing to update it on a regular 
basis. This could make the language even more popular!

Regards,

-Andreas

Re: Standalone installer
Nice!

We can host it, not a big deal.

Are there any "zero level editor"?
build.exe?

Whar else should be included in the D box?

Andrew.

How about hosting it on the D Wiki?

Re: Standalone installer
Great!  :)  The installation I chose was on drive F: rather than drive C:, because my primary hard drive is too short on space, and since my environment variable space is also running low, I didn't use it to specify the path.  My solution was to write registry entries to allow me to compile for DOS or Windows from the right-click context menu, with default Windows linking and the option of verbode mode... so it wouldn't have worked out for me... but still, I'm glad to see.  One more step in the right direction.  :)
