Buzz,

Will check if I missed any updates and update.
The batch file is a bit more elegant for novice users as it will prompt that
you need perl, and allows installation of required CPAN package before
script starts.
To get a build against 16789, just run MythInstaller.bat -r 16789
Supporting QT4 is one of my TODOs - but until the QT4 code is 100% working,
we will need to support both ..

Arnonm,
I also notice that your revised perl code (now inside the .bat file ) is
actally based apon an older version of the win32-packager.pl  script, and is
missing a number of improvements that exist in the latest SVN version (like
speling corrections, limiting comments to 80chrs, and other assorted fixes)
.

Can you please resubmit as patches against the latest version, or if you
desire I can merge them, and upload a revised version (agains HEAD) of the
.pl file for review.

Others,
All win32 dev's please note that (if you haven't noticed) the last possible
trunk release that the win32-packager.pl etc might yet be able to build at
this time is 16789, as it was the last revision prior to QT4.3 being made a
requirement.     Has anyone built and documented QT4.3 on win32 yet?

Buzz.
