Here's a new version of the installer file.

  • Now it cleans cache directory
  • It stops salt-minion service before upgrading
  • It closes salt-minion.exe process (needed if install is launched from salt).

But WARNING there's 2 drawbacks:

  • You need to add nsProcess NSIS plugin
  • Salt can't return when we close salt-minion process :-( but it's needed to upgrade salt-minion.exe

@equinoxefr Very nice! thanks!

Would you mind adding a note to the doc on how to add the nsProcess NSIS plugin?

Thanks for your help!
