Top of the morning to you,

Thus far I have seen great need for Installers, across almost ALL Operating Systems.

As a service to the Processing Community, I have decided to create Installers.

If you would like the source code for the Installers, please just request them & I'll provide the files/folders.

MSI: http://www.mediafire.com/?kzjwwzdoyn3
EXE: (InnoSetup, doesn't require Admin privileges): http://www.mediafire.com/?xa2bmnnjywm

DEB: Preliminary steps are completed, a lot more work needs to be done. Here is a very alpha version: [currently uploading]

Mac OS X
PKG: http://www.mediafire.com/?dli3uzanmjm


I'll continue editing this post until all the gaps are filled in. My aim is one package a day, however as Uni has begun, this may prove difficult.

I hope you find my Installers helpful.

All the best,

Alec Taylor

PS: Due to limitations within the NSIS Compiler, I was unable to create a usable NSIS Installer (working yes, uninstaller=no!)

NOTE: The Windows versions incorporate file-associations.
Processing 1.1 Installers for Windows & Mac

Good Evening,

Recently I noticed that Processing has been updated from version 1.0.9 to 1.1.

New Installers


Mac OS X (.pkg) Installer - http://www.mediafire.com/?l2zcmzndjaz
Windows (.exe) Installer - http://www.mediafire.com/?nmzhgdxgrry
Windows (.msi) Installer - http://www.mediafire.com/?tycfjtnvgiv

I completely rewrote all of the above Installers from scratch. I now have Processing within a hierarchical structure, and is now completely Portable/Reusable. I can safely say within 17 minutes (1 minute to make minor changes, 16 minutes to compile) of being informed of a new version, I will be able to release 3 Installers (2 for Windows, 1 for Mac).

Many changes have been completed with my latest versions, including better use of images, inclusion of StartMenu shortcuts (for Processing & Uninstaller [MSI only includes Processing shortcut, as an Uninstall shortcut would only cause confusion if the IT Dept. are ever enlightened enough to Install Processing ). Many other miscellaneous fixes have also been applied.

Also I have done some research into file-associations with Mac, appears some .plist files need to be edited. Would anyone be interested with me adding file-associations for Mac to my repertoire of features

Looks like ant has finally been fixed, so if I get the chance I shouldn't have too much trouble creating Linux & BSD versions.

Hope you enjoy the new version,

Alec Taylor
