Re: [TSVN] Building, part 2

My workstation is a little unstable at the moment - I get
IRQ_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL type blue screens, which I've googled and it
tells me those are usually hard-to-track-down driver issues. Which is
odd, since I haven't installed new drivers for things lately. It only
seems to happen when I have Winamp going, though, and I updated that
(but also downgraded it when I thought that was the cause). Annoying.

The localization mechanism of WiX might not be that great for us, since
it would require that we build a setup package for each language (I
think). However, that could be a blessing, actually, since then we
could simply integrate the language resources into each specific
installer? I don't know what'd be best...

Yeah. It doesn't have any string variables, all of the strings are
encoded as part of the dialogs, and other stuff...

Oh good ;-) Regardless, probably won't start in earnest 'til after the
