New Version of Modify Path Released

Submitted by jbreland on Sat, 08/21/2010 - 14:52

I updated the Modify Path (modpath) Inno Setup script. This is the first new feature release in three years and contains one major new feature that I've been wanted to add for nearly that whole time: support for modifying either system or user paths. All prior versions modify the system path, which requires administrative privileges. My changing just the user's path, this should now be usable in packages that can be installed by non-admin users. Changing the user's path is now the preferred approach, but you can still instruct it to modify the system path if necessary. This version also includes the ability to change the name of the 'modifypath' task if desired, as well as a couple bug fixes (the most prominent of which affects multiple directory support).

All modpath users are encouraged to update to the new version. Complete changes are listed in the ChangeLog.

Please note that this version is, unfortunately, not directly compatible with older releases and will require some small modifications to your existing Inno Setup scripts. Please see the updated usage examples on the modpath home page or within modpath.iss.

The new version can be downloaded from the script's home page:
