Compiling the CUBRID OLE DB installer


 

Introduction

The CUBRID OLE DB installer is open-source code, BSD licensed and built using NSIS.

NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) is a professional open source system for creating Windows installers. It is designed to be as small and flexible as possible and is therefore very suitable for internet distribution.

We choosed NSIS because it is widely used in open source projects, it is script-based and allows us to create the logic to handle even the most complex installation tasks. 

Updating and compiling the installer

The source code for CUBRID OLEDB Installer is located in the CUBRID SVN repository:
http://svn.cubrid.org/cubridapis/oledb/branches/RB-xxx/installer/installer.nsi

If you want to compile the installer yourself, (and maybe change it,) we recommend the followings:

 

  • Download the installer script source code - see the above specified location
  • Update the script, if needed; we recommend using HM NIS Edit tool.

    "HM NIS Edit is the best Editor/IDE for Nullsoft Scriptable Install System (NSIS). Its useful for experts and beginners in the creation of Setup programs with the NSIS. Its Script Wizard will help you to create standard Setup programs with only few clicks, also its InstallOptions designer will help you to create your own custom pages with a friendly drag and drop interface."
  • Compile the installer. (If you use HM NIS Edit it is just a matter of clicking a toolbar button.)

 

Notes:

By default, the installer script code is for creating the x32 installer. If you want to create the x64 installer,

please update the installer script first by commenting/uncommenting the appropiate lines of code (just search for "64" in the script).
