As a windows developer I would also recommend using the 'standard' =
locations on windows. I think what you've done however is fantastic and =
is something I've been waiting for for ages! I understand your feelings =
on the matter, however think of it this way, what if a windows developer =
released an app for linux and decided to create a Program Files =
directory, I think you know what the response would be like ! I've never =
ben able to remember what all the different locations are under Linux, =
at least windows is simpler.

Many many thanks for your efforts! We will be having a look at it.=20

Your criticism also missed that I am "non-compliant" by putting an
"uninstall" link in the Start Menu.  Will Father Gates forgive me from
straying from the truth path?

I hate the Program Files folder.   But if you have a love for it, I =
write a function in the installer for you "standards compliant" people.

Function .OnInit

MessageBox MB_YESNO|MB_ICONQUESTION "Do you wish the installer to be MSI
compliant?"  IDNO ThinkDifferent


Function ILoveGates



Function ThinkDifferent

InstallDir =3D "C:\gnu\lib\gtksharp"



Would this be sufficient?
