default and sdbarker_tiny GUI of NSIS

Go To


I'm trying to modify and resize the windows of default.exe which you can find in the Contrib/UI subfolder of NSIS. However, after saving the modifications to it I'm not able to see the changes in my installer's GUI.

I tried deleting default.exe only to find out that it's not the default GUI used by NSIS when you're not using MUI. My first question is, where can I find the default GUI of NSIS?

There's a smaller GUI anyway, named sdbarker_tiny.exe. My second question is, how do you use it in your installer?

Please help.

default.exe is the same as the default UI, but the real default UI is embedded in the exeheaders in the Stubs subdirectory.

To change a page or all of the UI, use ChangeUI.

Ex: ChangeUI all "${NSISDIR}\Contrib\UIs\sdbarker_tiny.exe"
