Institutional use of POV-Ray is something we care about and wish to
support as best we can. In fact it's one of the primary reasons I
persisted using InstallShield as long as I did, since MSI's can
support the multi-user from one install concept (as well as deployment
via group policy for example).

Ultimately the struggle with IS's licensing policies became too much
hassle and I have ceased to use it, moving to NSIS.

It is possible for POV-Ray to do certain things internally; e.g. there
is already support for creating registry settings automatically based
on inferred install location. This doesn't copy files, but it is
possible that if I made a sub-installer that just contained the
scenes/includes etc that it could be fired up by the main EXE in cases
like these.

I'll think about it and see if I can come up with a solution for this
sort of use. It probably wouldn't be difficult.
