I get the following virus message when i install any application using the Nullsoft installer:

c:\docume~1\Karl\Temp\nsd4C.tmp\nsisdl.dll was infected by the downloader-og trojan and has been deleted to complete the clean process.

This file isn't a virus (Symantec have fixed this issue in their virus definitions dated 9 August 2004).

See the nullsoft website for more info:

hopefully someone will do something about this.

NSISdl: why it gets labeled a trojan

NSISdl is a plugin that can download files from the Internet. While a spyware programmer can use it to download malware, it does not contain any malicious code.

You should probably post in the forums when you have a problem like that - I've seen people complaining about the same thing before.

An installer is not only the first experience of a user with your product

eh, shouldn't this be An installer is not only the first experience of a product with your user --Djon

It sounds right to me. The user is having an experience with the product, not the other way around. But I'm not a native English speaker, so I might be wrong. --kichik 00:03, 19 May 2006 (PDT)
Both are wrong, or at least ambiguous, it should be "An installer is not only a user's first experience with your product" or "An installer is not only the first experience a user has with your product". 08:23, 31 May 2006 (PDT)


Hi. I noticed this website look and feel is exactly that of Wikipedia. Is this website, Nulsoft, or NSIS associated with Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Foundation?

It uses the same software, but it's in no way associated.--kichik 02:22, 3 June 2006 (PDT)
The NSIS site uses MediaWiki, a popular FOSS CM and wiki solution. A lot of websites use it nowadays; Wikipedia provides a (far from complete) list of websites using wiki software, and the vast majority of these wikis use MediaWiki. --Dandaman32 09:18, 9 August 2006 (PDT)

NSIS Eclipse link in the Main page

Joost quote: "EclipseNSIS link is back (this is the place for a "featured contribution" that's inside the Developer Center)"

I don't see a "Developers Center featured contribution" tag, indicating that's the place for that... Also, where is the "featured contributions" section in the Developers Center? So there's actually no featured contributions! :o

I removed this link before because I wanted featured contributions to appear only on the Developers Center. deguix

The Developer Center is indeed the place for contributions, but some of the best ones that are important for many people in the community can get some additional promotion on the main page :) Joost 02:53, 11 June 2006 (PDT)
Understood, but my request for "Developers Center featured contribution" tag is still up. deguix 12:35, 12 June 2006 (PDT)

(forgot my user tag... my bad)

Why is this page protected?

I noticed that this talk page is semi-protected so that only registered users can post - IMHO this isn't a great idea, after looking through the page history I couldn't find any spam or anything so I would suggest that this page be unprotected. --Dandaman32 09:09, 9 August 2006 (PDT)

MediaWiki probably does this automatically for protected pages. And the main page must be protected... --kichik 02:33, 18 August 2006 (PDT)

Insert the link

Insert the link to Italian NSIS Portal. Pagina Principale. Thank you. --GiancyNSIS 12:55, 19 September 2006 (PDT)

Where do you think a good place for this would be? --kichik 03:27, 22 September 2006 (PDT)
kichik, putting it in "In other languages" bar would be great. But this would require some prefix like "it/" to be in the title AFAIK. deguix 11:43, 22 September 2006 (PDT)
it does seem to require more than simply adding a link in to "it:Pagina_Principale". I haven't dug in enough to find out where it gets the mapping of it: prefix to Anyway, it seems a bit too complicated for just a simple link. A simple link on the bottom would do for now. --kichik 09:27, 29 September 2006 (PDT)

What links here ...

Why was the "What links here" option of the navigation pane removed ? I find it very helpfull and use it a lot to trace back where an article is linked from.

--Cribe 07:17, 19 July 2007 (PDT)

The special links were removed for simplicity. Maybe it can placed somewhere else where it'd both keep the skin simple and provide access to advanced features. The skin is available in CVS, if you want to submit patches for it. --kichik 08:45, 20 July 2007 (PDT)
