Addition of a default development environment

Hello,
I have always appreciated NSIS, but it's difficult to find an updated and free development enviroment for your installer.
Probably the most useful could be HM NIS Edit (http://hmne.sourceforge.net/) but is not updated since 2005!
Luckily I have tested it under Windows 10 and is working quite good. Obviously it needs to be heavily updated and upgraded.
Could you consider to do this and maybe integrate it into NSIS? After all almost every installer works with a wizard for creating the setup files, even the commercial one.
What do you think about my idea?
Let me know.

Visual Studio Code integration here.

HM NIS Edit does not support the latest syntax but you can download a updated syntax file on the Wiki.

If you require a wizard then NSIS might not be your best choice, it requires that you learn the scripting language to do anything useful. Perhaps you should try Inno Setup instead?

What about Visual & Installer?

The Visual Studio Community Edition is free and with Visual & Installer addon for Visual Studio you can edit and build NSIS scripts with easy.

Visual & Installer costs small fee which goes into further development (sorry for little self promo).

Cool looking installers with custom design: www.graphical-installer.com
Create Setup Pages easily: www.install-designer.com
Build installers in Visual Studio 2005-2019: www.visual-installer.com
or RAD Studio 2009, 2010, XE-10.4 Sydney: www.rad-installer.com
