We have released new version of our tool RAD & Installer - a RAD Studio (both C++ Builder nad Delphi) extension for creating NSIS and Inno Setup installers. It integrates NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) and Inno Setup with Embarcadero RAD Studio IDE and allows you to create and build NSIS and Inno Setup projects right within RAD Studio getting all benefits of common integrated environment!

New version Changes:

[+] New feature Go To File (similar to Open File at Cursor): opening included files (.nsh / .iss) from IDE with Ctrl + Click (not Ctrl + Enter!)
[+] Added new tooltips for !include "filename.nsh" and #include "filename.iss" elements with details and references.
[+] New Settings option Save script files before Building/Compiling the Project (default is On) for .nsi and .nsh / Inno Setup .iss scripts. Script files are automatically saved before Build/Compile (if invoked via Keyboard Shortcuts)
[*] Removed spaces in NSIS and Inno Setup Project Templates (Improved project creating, Increased security)
[*] Default output name was changed to $safeprojectname$ (which is project name without spaces, invalid characters etc. in both NSIS and Inno Setup installers) instead of default 'setup.exe' to prevent DLL hijacking (Increased security)
[+] Enhanced Syntax Highlighting for NSIS and Inno Setup scripts. Syntax is more colourful with many rich options, better items recognition and tweaked colors (for Light themes at this moment).
[+] Support for NSIS 3.0 (Final version - no more Beta or RC!, see changes)
[+] Support for NSIS 3.0 RC2 (see changes)
[+] Support for GI for NSIS 4.4.01 (Patka) and Graphical Installer Wizard 1.8.01 (see changes)
[+] Implemented checking for latest NSIS and Inno Setup release and downloading updated version (can be turned On/Off in Settings dialog).
[*] Fixed AV Exception on closing bds.exe when Tip of the Day (or any other) form was shown and closed prematurely
[*] Sanity check for TWebBrowser component (causing issues on certain Internet Explorer configurations).
[+] Implemented Run last Build for NSIS and Inno Setup projects. As Run (F9) or Run Without Debugging (Shift + Ctrl + F9) cannot be used for compilation (projects need to be fully Build) these keyboard shortcuts launch last succesfully built installer (if exists).
