Simple Setup Engine for KinectContrib Templates

While developing KinectContrib, a hobby project of mine that allows developers to easily integrate Kinect development templates in Visual Studio, I encountered a simple, yet interesting problem - how to deliver those templates properly. Specifically, the problem was boxed to the fact that Visual Studio 2012 required some additional post-install actions that would allow me to "activate" the new templates.

I am already using InnoSetup - a free installation package creator, to bundle up the ZIP archives for KinectContrib. I like it because it is lightweight, fast and allows proper installation customization, both through a wizard (for quick packaging) and a scripting engine.
