Builtin NSISdl plug-in
From NSIS Wiki
This built-in plugin allows you to download files via HTTP (but not HTTPS).
To find out whether your NSIS installation supports NSISdl, just compile a script. If NSISdl is listed in the compiler log, it is supported.
Processing config: Processing plugin dlls: "C:\Program Files\NSIS\Plugins\*.dll" - AdvSplash::show - Banner::destroy - Banner::getWindow : - NSISdl::download - NSISdl::download_quiet :
Standard usage instructions
There are two methods. The first downloads the file:
NSISdl::download http://download.nullsoft.com/winamp/client/winamp291_lite.exe $0
And the second downloads it without warnings:
NSISdl::download_quiet http://download.nullsoft.com/winamp/client/winamp291_lite.exe $0
$0 is the name of the local file.
Limitations and warnings
- Has a verified risk of causing a false positive for "generic downloader trojan" in Kasperky antivirus software.
- Even if you specify a HTTPS link, this plugin will download via HTTP. If your link is redirected from HTTP to HTTPS via a server-sent HTTP header, you will encounter a timeout error. You might want to use the Inetc plug-in instead.
