I'm trying to find out how the Windows 7 install exe is created. It looks like an innosetup project but who has the working project for this? It appears that the downloadable Windows 10.1 ADMB installs on Windows but it is in a bad place, the 'Program Files (x86)' directory which wreaks havoc on linkers. It does not work out-of-the-box, all users I have contact with move it into something like C:\ADMB and manual setting of paths which I can remedy.

Ok, answer my own question.. Found the innosetup folder. I will work from those scripts. Johnoel if there are any caveats please let me know! Thanks

The Visual studio installs for 32-bit and 64-bit should now work correctly. I have updated the VS install procedures extensively. This method is a little more complicated but it allows the user to compile their code from outside a Visual Studio command prompt, a limitation which many Windows users find inconvenient. This has been tested on Windows XP 32-bit, Windows XP 64-bit, and Windows 7 64-bit.
The install directions are here:

The MinGW and GCC installs need to be overhauled, as the ADMB distribution does not include MinGW nor gcc as is mentioned in the install procedures.
