Deploying GimpShop

As you will see, GimpShop is open-source  but full of plugins. It is nearly impossible to do a silent install without something like AutoIT. You can't open the executable up in something like PeaZip because the only thing that will show up is one DLL. When you run the executable, it will extract the msi to the root of %TEMP%. It also creates a couple of temporary directories, which are not needed for repackaging. I packaged up version 2.8, so the name of the msi was GimpShop2.8.msi. That is all you need to install the application. The msi does not contain any plugins and you can do a simple /qb- /norestart.
