Windows 7: what can i associate an .nsis file type with

18 Sep 2010   #1

1) win 7 32 bit running as guest os in VirtualBox; 2) win xp pro 32 bit
what can i associate an .nsis file type with


I am unfamiliar with the windows installer of a piece of software I downloaded. The installer's file type is: .nsis

Windows 7 is asking me to identify the prog that will run the file type.

From search, I have learned that the .nsis stands for Nullable Install system script (?).

However, I am not sure what to do next. I suppose I have to download and install something, that I can associate with this file type. I actually downloaded the NSIS software. But all it did was compile the script.

What I am looking for is for something that will install the first software I downloaded.

Can someone help?
