Inno Setup Extensions Knowledge Base

Inno Setup is an open source script-driven installation system created in Delphi by Jordan Russell.

Inno Setup at Wikipedia

The Inno Setup Extensions Knowledge Base (ISXKB) aims to support users of this installation system by providing a source of information, code snippets, guide lines, and ready-to-use solutions.

There are currently 153 articles in the ISXKB. You can search the ISXKB, browse through a list with all articles, or view them sorted by category. A list sorted by article popularity is also available as well as all special pages.

If you would like to help improve and extend the ISXKB Help:Editing_pages is the place to go. Note that because of spamming now only trusted users can change and add pages, but it's easy to become one (if you're not a spammer ;-). Help:Editing_pages explains how.

If you are a developer and you're using Inno Setup as your deployment application feel free to add your software to the subcategory it belongs to under the Inno Setup users category, or create a subcategory if you think it doesn't fit anywhere else.

The old version of the Inno Setup Extensions Knowledge Base was a Windows HTML help file (.chm). The file can still be downloaded from here: isxkbchm.zip 339KB. Some of these articles may be outdated in the meantime as newer versions of Inno Setup support many new features that had to be achieved via a [Code] section in earlier versions.
