NSIS allows you to create stable, quick and user friendly installers that are capable of installing, uninstalling, setting system settings, extracting files and more. With the NSIS scripting language you can implement any custom logic you want.

The large collection of plug-ins, scripts and software in the Developer Center helps you to build full featured installers and provides a solution for almost every scenario.
