How to compile your own version of Shrak

  1. Download and install NSIS. Currently tested with NSIS 3.0
  2. All NSIS dependancies used are included in the nsis_contrib, nsis_include and nsis_plugin folders
  3. Edit modules or create new ones in the build\modules folder. Modules have an *.nsh extension
  4. Compile the .\build\make.nsi script and you'll get a .build\shark.exe installer
