    My Alpha program files are not under Documents & Settings. Is this a problem for the install? I can't find any addins installed. Perhaps you could add the option of letting us pick where to install the program? The shortcut created pointed to a non-existent directory. I suspect it will be the same to find where I installed the InnoScript program?

    Also a "dir_not_used" table appears in the control panel with a "?" - which I couldn't drop.

    This will make a lot of people happy James.
    As it's Beta are there any known issues?

    Ted and Al,

    As proof you should never work late on Friday night, the original download was created using my internal installation script for debugging and not the installtion script for distribution. Please go to the code archive and download the plugin again. This will give you the ability to select the version of Alpha you would like to install the plugin on (v10, v11, v12). Sorry for the confusion.
    Thanks,
    James

    Ted,

    Appin is no longer in beta. The beta period was approx 45 days with 12 participants. No issues were reported so I moved it out of beta and ready for public use. However, there is still one known issue I am having were the Inno processor will generate a "file in use" error during compilation. This error is produced even though the prior step closes the database to install (leaving Alpha shell open). This error occurs less than half the time suggesting it is a time based error between the two stages. The solution is to simply close Alpha and rerun the Inno processor until I figure out a long term fix.

    Feel free to contact me on any thoughts if you get a chance to try the plugin.
    Thanks,
    James

    No, but there is a help button for almost every option. My plan for the future is to put together a compilation of pre-existing help documents from Inno with specifics from me so there is a comprehensive help document. My best guess is that this will be complete in 3 to 5 months.
    Thanks,
    James
