NSIS is a tool for creating quick and user friendly installers for
Microsoft Windows (Win32) operating systems.
NSIS creates installers that are capable of installing, uninstalling,
setting system settings, extracting files, etc. Because it's based on
script files, you can fully control every part of your installers. The
script language supports variables, functions, string manipulation,
just like a normal programming language - but designed for the creation
of installers. Even with all these features, NSIS is still the smallest
installer system available. With the default options, it has an overhead
of only 34 KB.
