Thanks a lot!
I've add a small patch to the ArchLinux AUR package[1] to build cleanly.


(file #27159)

NSIS installer files are not required to build the source distribution. Missed to change the targets accordingly after enabling build for NSIS as well as for the mountable image.
You can change build/build.xml (approx line 32) to
<target name="dist" depends="copy-files">
this will fix the problem.
Will upload the fixed source distribution next days.

Get the following error if I try to compile the source on linux:

     [nsis] MakeNSIS v24-Dec-2012.cvs - Copyright 1995-2009 Contributors
     [nsis]  - nsExec::ExecToStack
     [nsis] Can't open script "/home/aaron/tmp/src/dataexplorer-3.06/build/installer.nsi"

/home/aaron/tmp/src/dataexplorer-3.06/build/build.xml:547: The following error occurred while executing this line:
/home/aaron/tmp/src/dataexplorer-3.06/build/build.xml:845: Command failed, error code 1: 'makensis -V3 -DVERSION=${nsis.version} -DDISTDIR=${nsis.dist32} -DOUTDIR=${nsis.outputdir} -DOUTFILENAME=${nsis.outputfilename}_win32.exe -DEXEFILENAME=${launch4j.outputfilename} /home/aaron/tmp/src/dataexplorer-3.06/build/installer.nsi'

I use ArchLinux with the "nsis" package. The file installer.nsi is not in the build folder. Is it generated with another ant task? Or even better: Can i skip the creation of the nsi installer on a linux machine?
