there was a typo related to the path to the GRASS bin and lib folders in in my GRASS-Packager.bat-script.

if I save the README.html-file from http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/browser/grass-web/trunk/grass64/binary/mswindows/native/README.html?format=raw by firefox, the  "README-Dateien"-folder is also saved. I will remove this folder the next-time I am packaging.

because the installer is build on the GRASS64-releasebranch-svn-code (living in C:\OSGeo4W\apps\grass\grass-6.4.0svn) and not on the GRASS65-develbranch-svn-code. but if you can submit your GRASS-Packager.bat- and GRASS-Installer.nsi-script, so we could synchronise the installer.

I've build a new installer, also now with the GRASS bin and lib folders. The installer has now about ~ 100MB. I've seen, your earlier self-installers had about ~80MB. the difference in size maybe related to different stuff installed in the osgeo4w-stack?

best regards
