[mkgmap-dev] bug in mapsource installer

From Nakor nakor.osm at gmail.com on Fri Feb 18 21:56:49 GMT 2011


I investigated a little bit more and can tell you the following:

DEFAULT_DIR is the default directory name where the maps are going to be installed, the user can modified it at install time
INSTALLER_DESCRIPTION is the name that shows up in the installer dialogs, this cannot be changed once NSIS has ran
INSTALLER_NAME is the name of the installer executable
REG_KEY is only visible inside the registry

We can move those to be family-name, this is not a big change.

The name in the drop-down menu in mapsource comes from somewhere else. I do not know where from though.
