Features: (compared to original installer application)

 ° Magic User Interface (MUI) is used

   situation.
 ° Preferences which allow to preset personal skill and other features.
 ° Application specific banner can be placed inside the installer window.



Frequently Asked Questions:

 ° Is this installer 100% compatible to the original one?

   No, the original installer has many bugs that cause them to crash or freeze.
   I didn't emulate this behaviour. In addition to that the original description
   of the language is so weak, that you can't even say what is right and wrong.
   Even that documentation is proved to be wrong.

   I did my very best to make every command act like the original installer, but
   I may not noticed all side effects and hidden features. If you find a problem
   tell me and I will try to adapt.

 ° Is this installer based on InstallerNG ?

   No, this Installer is a complete new product written from scratch in over 490
   hours of my spare time. Also InstallerNG claimed to be 100% compatible, so as
   my installer isn't that compatible it can't be.

 ° Is this installer based on the Commodore Installer ?

   No, see previous question.

 ° Why should I use your installer and not the original one?

   Well it may work for existing installer scripts, but upcoming scripts will
   for sure use the ability to display any amount of textual information inside
   the installer window. If you're happy with only being able to read 4 or 5
   fixed sized lines and the crappy look, than there is no reason to update.

   The original installer will stay compatible, as I don't plan compatibly
   breaks of any kind in the future.

 ° What are the new key features of this new installer?

   There are none. Well, that not 100% correct. There is one feature related to
   the installer language. The new installer supports a new banner variable
   ( at app-banner) which allows to change the window banner at script runtime.
   Beside that all new features are in usage and visual appearance. The
   preferences allows configuration everyone dreamed of in the original
   installer and there may be further enhancements in the future like security
   switch which would warn on dangerous external actions like format or delete
   outside target drawer.
