Insert your comments. The new AoE Installation Tool will be able to install any mod creatable for TAD, but it has to be configured to do it.
It will be able also to install a mod from its setup, but the support for that will be reduced, but not much, just as NE in the AoE Installation Tool 1.2
(http://www.ne.elpea.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1720)

Here are some screenshots

For now, the new tool will be available only for Windows Vista or more, but nothing excludes I could make a compatibility version for XP

EDIT: I forgot to say that the NE 2.01 setup will be totally replaced by the tool, so the register-system will not be modified. Anyone will able to make his own installer for any mod, but it won't be easy for non-expert users.
Hotfix 7.1 has been included natively, but there won't be the "Bonus", if someone wants to include that, will have to do it manually.

I'm currently working on a MSI package which includes some of the features your program also has, but I think what your abilities could be very useful for us.
Can I contact you via Skype or MSN? I have some suggestions for a few really nice features.

This is much more, I've just configured it to install NE. It can be configured to install anymod, a backup and an uninstallation (no CRC problems) without being modified. Also the "NE 2.01" in the first button (see first screen).

So, did you code it yourself?

yes, everything coded by myself, and a dynamic system (much more difficult than a normal setup) which permitts to install any mod.

Skype contact: r0gerblack

I'd like to send you it in a private message, but the Private messages don't work (it's the second time I try to send them).

I use MSN too (ruggiero_altini@hotmail.it) but I'm not active there (in the mailbox I'm active).

INFO: The button "Load an .exe file" (screenshot 2 & 3) has been removed due to possible conflict issues between more mods. It will be possible to install infinity mods anyway, with total backup or not, but it must be done by the installation files of the tool and not external executable files.

NE works as well, I tested it and it works.
ms = milliseconds

Install time: 148 ms Arrow 0 seconds
Run time (retard of run time): 857 ms Arrow 0,86 seconds (only when is runned a mod)
Uninstallation time: 35 ms Arrow 0 seconds

Converted in seconds: 0s; 0,86s; 0s

It's much faster than official setup and more efficient. Seen it can install anymod, also the new NE (but I will have to configure it, although the AoE Installation Tool 2.0 will not be modified to do it).

Now I want to listen if someone can say it's useless.
