Some results from test installer #3 have come back and are being used to make the installer the best it can possibly be.

The installer now supports updates so that hypothetically:

If the download of version 1.00.7000 is 2MB, and then version 1.00.8000 is released at 2.3MB then the user can either download the whole 2.3MB installer

OR

if they have 1.00.8000 installed already they can just download the update at .3MB.

The feature is mainly for 56K users since the pack is considerably small in size so that they don't have to wait so long for it to download.

The pack has come a long way already.

The design phase is over, testing of the installer is underway and creation of the scripts is only halted by the fact that BFME is not out.
