Basic Installers.

Hello and welcome to my tutorial on NSIS :)
I will explain you how to create and compile *.NSI scripts for use with NSIS.

First we will need NSIS
You can from THIS page, just click on download.
You might allso need a IDE to make things easier.
I first used Notepad++ for it but the syntax higlighting for NSIS scripts is kinda wunky so i will use HM NIS Edit.
You can download that HERE

After both the installers are completed you may run HM NIS Edit (HMNE from now on)
First thing you should do is go to View>Options or press F11
Under enviroment, click on the big "Register as default editor for NSIS files" button to make things easier :)

So lets create a basic script
