This is meant to eventually become (or seed) some kind of introduction to the code for the Windows installer. It'll probably end up being a text (or .lyx) file in the repository.
Installer source code
There are currently two codes. They will be merged:
Binaries - J's code
- A wrapper application that is used to start the real
LyX application (
lyxc.exe). The source code for this is in
- The LyX application.
The source code is the real source code for LyX. The 'c' in the
name stands for 'console' according to Joost.
- An application for launching the PDF viewer on the system.
This application is needed to work around a bug in Adobe Reader.
This application uses pdfopen/pdfclose. (What are those? /C)
The source for this application is LyxJoostInst:../../pdfview/pdfview.nsi
If you are using GSView, this isn't needed because it doesn't lock files.
This appliacation works both with View PDF and Update PDF.
