Hi, I just filled a bug for the stack installer :
I was wondering, how is the installer built ? I see a build-stack-installer.hsfile which uses a nsis package to generate a nsis installer, but does it happen on a windows machine or a linux machine ? These days the recommended way of making windows installer is by making msi file for instance with WiX toolset, which is an xml based format. But this means that the installer can only be built on a Windows machine. So that's why I'm asking the question, are installer put on the release page generated on a Windows machine or VM ?
