I am thinkink of using Exeoutput to publish a shareware. This means that the software must install on very different machines (like outdated Windows XP boxes…), without any additional download required from the enduser.
I will be using NSIS as the installer. NSIS will install the 2008 Visual C++ librairies if needed.
Apart from that, are there some other things that need to be done?
Has anyone been using Exeoutput for large scale software distribution?
No, because the internal PHP runtime was built with VC9. We are thinking of building a custom PHP runtime that would remove these dependencies, this is currently under testing.
