Maybe a question / feature request for next version:

Can be NSISBI integrated/merged into official NSIS? https://sourceforge.net/projects/nsisbi/

Are there 2 versions completely different? The support for large files is totally a must-have thing!

The two versions are basically the same with regards to the script, but there are a few extra commands related to external files of course. Nsisbi is basically a patch against official nsis.

Anders has mentioned in the past that they are open to taking it at some point, but it would need a reconfigure so that it doesn't break existing scripts (eg solid compression, nsisbi currently ignores that by default). There also needs to be a discussion about code design and organization to better suit integration into nsis.

I can see why it's appealing though, 4GB all-in-one installers, and a theoretical 8EB for both the external file and single source files (a 3GB file now adds properly without a size error in nsisbi ).

Oh, I forgot to mention that the core file offsets of the installers is slightly different (to accommodate 64bit lengths), so probably a major version bump would be needed as well. But right now there just isn't enough demand to justify merging it.

On a side note, I just recently found out that Unity (game engine) is using nsisbi to distribute it's editor software on windows, which surprised me . (I sometimes do google searches on nsisbi to see if there are any issues or discussions happening about it).
