Things are looking up. (Test) Packaging for Windows can now trigger a download and install of Shoes before running the the script or shy. When I’m finished a Shoes person with a small script or Shoes app doesn’t have to deal with 7 to 15MB files to distribute. This much loved option of Shoes was broken many years ago. It’s about to work again. Then I hope to make it even better now that I know more and can cross compile all of the Windows C code with MinGW base compilers. I have a lot of testing and some minor bugs to fix but it’s looking very promising.
It’s been a long slog, deep into Windows do-do. I survived and did some good. It should be more fun soon.
