I doubt it. No green dots on mine at all. I'm really not sure how I'd
fix it.

I don't have any Windows programming experience. I'm not that much of a
masochist.

Well, I think it does just about everything I'd want a rockbox installer
to do. The stuff you've mentioned would be cool, but I'm not interested
enough in hacking Windows or Pascal about enough to make it happen.
Maybe I'll have a fit of enthusiasm one day, but that's probably better
directed at the manual, which is still waiting on me getting my head
around OpenOffice's auto-numbering scheme.

It occurs to me that InnoSetup might well run under wine, in which case,
generating the Windows executable installer as part of the daily build
process might well be possible. Does whoever runs the builds think this
is a plausible idea?
