Well, current installer is deeply "illegal" - using .exe to install things was OK 10 years ago, but today .msi is required.

Anyway, before doing that, I have got an idea that perhaps we could try something different. What about just creating something like "portable" U++, simple .zip which, when unpacked, would run TheIDE from any folder, autoconfiguring everything in the process.

mingw would probably now be part of release, otherwise autoconfig would try to setup MSC15 build method. Nothing would be written to the registry, to unistall, all you need to do is to delete the folder.

Is it a good idea?
