Packaging does not work with NSIS v3.x
Closed, ResolvedPublic


While building a mitk installer on windows this error occured. A workbench.exe was created and runs.

Message in visual studio:

Event Timeline

holzwart created this task.

No ZIP-folder / file was created, no installer was built - just the bin-folder with the .exe-file.

kislinsk raised the priority of this task from Low to High.
kislinsk edited projects, added MITK (v2021.02); removed MITK.
kislinsk added a subscriber: kislinsk.

This happens with NSIS 3.x. We use NSIS 2.x. However, CMake dropped NSIS 2.x support in version 3.17, so we should finally get rid of this error and also require NSIS 3.x.

Deleted branch bugfix/T27030-MigrateToNSISv3.
