Hi tOnY, there is already a windows installer for Inkscape at least. I
hope you can use that. It is NSIS-based, which is an open source
installer. MSI is not an open source installer. Thus, you can see why we
use NSIS, which many consider more effective...

You can find this installer (.nsi) on our
http://sf.net/projects/inkscape/ files page.
