This is an example Inno Setup 5 script for my concept of "personal apps". Personal Apps are installed into each individual users account and are uninstalled from there too. It is best suited to convert portable applications. The benefits in bullet point form:

* Individual installations so user can retain preferred settings
* If installation gets corrupted other users are not affected
* Since mostly only portable apps work with this technique there's inherently less registry clutter
* Less clutter in Add/Remove Programs as uninstall is provided individually

As usual my programs may add irresponsible levels of MSG into your egg drop soup. Seems to work with XP and Inno Setup 5.1.13

I have successfully converted these portable/clean programs into "personal installations":
Portable CCleaner
Portable DeepBurner
Foxit Reader 2
IZArc2Go (Portable IZArc)
Portable Firefox
Portable OpenOffice 2.2
Portable VLC
