Licenses and source code

Of course, the source code of the installer is provided. Look at the "./nsis" folder, from the installed root folder.
Also, the same "./nsis" folder contains the licences. These licenses are coming from installed projects and components.

MS-Windows™ registry

  • The installer writes the selected intall options to the registry, with the version number of the selected component. The name of the registry key is:
    • HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\PHP-GTK
  • From version .009 (07-jan-2010), the installer also writes information for other programs. The name of the registry keys are:
    • HKLM\Software\PHP\
    • HKLM\Software\GTK\2.0\

Release numbering

As the installer is depending on PHP and on GTK and on PHP-GTK, and may even depend on Glade, numbering a release is not obvious. As a first step, the numbering will be prefixed with the release number of PHP-GTK, and suffixed with a sequence number.


The goal to achieve is testing the installer. Installers are updating files and parameters over a fully functional and running system. For the moment, there are no regresssion testing


  • Glade is shipped with our "huge" version,
  • the no-gtk version of Pidgin works fine with our "standard" Pigii.
  • the pkTypical pack includes a set of fantastic tools : a program launcher, a theme manager, a monitor for log files
