        We have managed to use NSIS to generate Windows installers for all GumTree applications. The motivation comes in three parts:

        • Support running GumTree in a multi user login environment at Bragg
        • Faster loading time (rather than loading from network)
        • Archieving artifacts at the end of each iteration.

        The generation process is automated with ANT and is managed under CruiseControl. From new on, we can use the installers instead of the GumTree deployment tool.
