Default Anyone know where I can find the JKDefrag GUI Installer?

I've been Googling for a few minutes trying to find this but I haven't had any luck yet. I'm looking for an installer for the JKDefrag GUI (the one that's in the Technibble USB Kit). I know that one exists because I have it installed on a computer of mine. All I can find are the installers that give you the "basic" JKDefrags that give you no options, the command line ones, and the portable GUI versions.

Maybe I overlooked something on the official page http://www.kessels.com/Jkdefrag/ but I didn't see anything there and Google isn't helping me today either.



P.S. Technibble is cited on the Wikipedia page about JkDefrag. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JkDefrag

That was baffling for me too for a while. Take a look near the bottom of that official page and you will find what you are looking for. There are three GUI's available from 3rd parties.

That is the exact program I want however there isn't an installer for the program on that site. There is a portable version in a .zip as well as a U3 version and a PE version. I'm looking for an executable that will install the program to my computer, with start menu shortcuts. I know I could do this manually but I've found an installer before so I know it exists somewhere.

You could always make an installer yourself. Nullsoft Installer is free and open-source. http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll read through the documentation later and try to teach myself how to use the program fully. For now I'm just using the "Installer based on a ZIP file" option. However this doesn't give me any options to make start menu shortcuts. The instructions I found to do this seems to be specifically for use with the NSI scripts, and not for a ZIP based installer. Is there a way to make an installer based on a ZIP file and have it create start menu shortcuts?


Before I hit Submit I Googled "Using NSIS" and the first result looks to have some good instructions on how to do what I want with scripting, so I might as well just put the time in now and do it the right way. http://www.seas.gwu.edu/~simhaweb/ja...r/install.html

EDIT: I found the installer. It's contained within the portable version of the program and can only be run from within the program.
