What I *should* do is somehow get the nsis installer script to check for the winsock2 dlls and actually run the installer, but thats a bit more difficult than just displaying a dialog with text and a web link.

Hi Chris,

maybe you could have that one be de-selected on default? The number of
win95 running winrash seem to be outnumbered by the others.

I saw there's now even a 0011. The following problems where observed by
me while the automatic upgrade took place:

- for some reason the previous TAG was not used anymore. If you look at you will see a load of
IDWASEMPTY's. (more than usual)
- On my WinNT4 box, the debug log file grew to 2GB!

Both of the above where solved by un-installing what was there and
installing the latest. I do think there's something wrong in the
automatic upgrade of winrash.
