"The hard part in all of this seems to be changing the entrenched views of a few and convincing the developers / coders that a stand alone fully portable install package is the route
that should be followed for the installation
No, actually, the hard part of all this is prioritization of very
limited dev resources. The devs focus primarily on bugs directly affecting the 90% user class. The Windows installer architecture does not fall into that category.
Have you noticed that we are getting around 5000 downloads per week of Version 3.2.0? Installer architecture issues do not surface in the real world of sailors using OpenCPN
on boats. Other things do...
