This post to discuss about the new Windows Installers  and some improvements and because I would like to have a feedback.
If you are looking for the installers for the server and the clients, you will find them if you uncompress the "All In One" ;-)
Attention: This installer only contains the base addon because it's just a test for feedback.
For feedback, you can send me an email !
1. We use the profiles
We propose some profiles:
* All In One: Will install the Server and the Clients and/or the PostgreSQL database
* Server: Will install the Server and/or the PostgreSQL database
* GTK Client
* Web Client
2. Each installer is independent
For the uninstallation, we don't uninstall the PostgreSQL database.
With this feature, you can upgrade your OpenERP installation without to uninstall the PostgreSQL database and therefore without making a backup of the databases.
Result: You can upgrade the OpenERP installation (v6.0) with the new Installer (6.0.0 -> 6.0.1)
Even if the All In One is installed, you can separately upgrade the Clients or the Server and the addons to a new version
2.1. Registry Structure
Each component of the AllInOne Installer has its own structure in the registry of Windows.
With this improvement, you can upgrade the AllInOne 6.0.0 to 6.0.1 without to uninstall the previous installer.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\OpenERP Server 6.0
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\OpenERP Web Client 6.0
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\OpenERP GTK Client 6.0
2.2. Directory Structure
For this version, there is a new directory structure, with this new structure, it's possible to install OpenERP 5.0 and >= 6.0
C:\Program Files\OpenERP 6.0\
3. PostgreSQL is optional
If PostgreSQL is installed on the system, the user can't select the "Install PostgreSQL database" section, but can configure the connection to the PostgreSQL server
The installation of the server will propose a screen for the configuration of PostgreSQL.
