The iss-files should be up to date, you are probably looking at the wrong

You must make a working copy related to the branch you want to make an
installer of. I suggest that you make a top level folder for your
Subversion work somewhere, and start to check out miscellany folders
from there. This means that the command for the 1.2 series from the
newly created folder is something like this:

   svn co http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/1.2.x is-branch-1.2.x

You don't have to check out the whole Subversion tree if you don't want
to, '/packages/win32-innosetup/' is enough. Make sure that your
is-branch-1.2.x working copy has the same revision number as the current
Subversion binaries, I believe that's r16048 for the 1.2.3 version.

Then you must co the Subversion book for making the MS HTML (chm)
documentation, again somewhere under you top level Subversion folder:

    svn co http://svn.red-bean.com/svnbook/trunk svnbook

You're probably reading '/packages/win32-innosetup/W32notes.txt' right?

You should ask all questions on the mailing list
dev@subversion.tigris.org from now on (with a copy to me if it has
relevance to me, so I can see it). I try to monitor the dev list, but
fails to read every single thing, so a copy to me is important when my
attention is required. Another reason of using the dev list, is to make
sure that everyone interested can read this. See this link:


Good luck and welcome to the club!
