Patch 24, 25 and new binaries:
http://www.ghostscript.com/~hintak/patchset/gs-patches/0024-moving-cjk-to-the-finish-menu.patch
http://www.ghostscript.com/~hintak/patchset/gs-patches/0025-no-need-to-copy-and-del-if-use-NOCD-option.patch
http://www.ghostscript.com/~hintak/r11657/

Patch 24 rearranges the user option for start menu before the file copying
(feels more "natural" that way), and have the CJK font cidfmap generation as a
checkbox in the finish page rather than a pop-up message box; also it
optionally launches doc\Readme.htm in IE at the end, if the user so chooses.

Patch 25 simplifies the makefile slightly and the corresponding comments in the
script about how it should be run.

Patch 18,19,21,23,24,25. One of the user options - whether to have the start
menu addition for "user" or for "all" - in the winzipse-based installer is not
going to be implemented. I don't see the value of it, also, it is the reason
why the winzipse-based installer does not clean those up on uninstall (which
the nsis-installer does).

Any chance of somebody trying the 64-bit windows installer yet?
