An example NSIS installer script for a package

This is an example installer script that works to install an XOP with the NSIS installer from http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page
It places an XOP in IP6UF/Igor Extensions. I have similar scripts for more complicated installs (shortcuts), if anyone is interested.
