Insomnia at 10:00 in the morning, Christie? <laugh>. Seriously, though, this
is a great idea. The number of people who don't know, it seems, how to unzip
the whole file, or put the contents of .rockbox in the root of the machine
is astounding. Very nice work. Now if only you could identify which rockbox
model people had, which drive letter it's on, and which computer on the
network it was connected to... <laugh>.
It works well on my original recorder and my player.

Subject: Announcement: Rockbox installer for Windows
Because I am an insomniac, I have the great pleasure to announce the
first ever self-executing Rockbox installer. This should hopefully cut
down on the number of people not installing the .rockbox directory.
Because my JB has no screen, it's not really up to testing, so I need
some brave suckers, erm volunteers to test that it works.
(Unfortunately my JB is still screenless and does not make a good testbed.)
Things I'd like testers to try:
- clean install (ie with Rockbox totally removed from the disk)
- install over a previous version
- plugins, language support, fonts
- different architectures (player, recorder, recorderv2, recorderfm)
Note that you can test using F1+on if you have flashed your box. It
will also copy the .ucl file, but you would have to flash that yourself.
This version, which should work for all Jukebox models, is an 800kb
download, which doesn't seem too harsh, really. It was created using
the excellent InnoSetup utility. If anyone wants the InnoSetup source
file, I'm happy to GPL it.
