I'm getting lost in this conversation... quite hard to follow :-)
Did i miss something in the docu for the executable ? I believe that never has always been the default stage , no ?
If i'm wrong, i apologize for users and developers and i shall fix that right away.

May i add my opinion ?
When i started looking for installers, i search everywhere. I mean it !! I looked at every single available installer on earth :-)
Commercials, Open Source, Freeware, Software... Whatever ! My company gave me 2 weeks just to find which one to choose because they know that a good installer can make the difference in time saving, support and efficiency !
Now, not only i chose IzPack but i'm part of this great community ! That's because i believe that IzPack offers much more than many of other installers and more importantly it's higly custumizable and well supported by people like you and uncountable others !

Also as far as the GUI is concerned, we have a devoted developer who's working on it hardly ! and i tried the first versions which were quite amazing already. I assume that in a close future we will have it. (Even though i prefer the good old fashion xml based programming)

So long !
