Will BWO Demo and eventually BWO support the Installer?
If so, when?

:D :)

Re: The FreeSpace Open Installer
Depends on the version of the FSO build inside of the installer, and we are likely to take one of the future builds as a "BWO official build".

When? When the campaign is finished and we decide to pick a build and run with it.

As far as the BWO Demo is concerned, I don't know about the latest FSO builds, but it was working fine for me a year or two back with the then-current FSO build.

When BWO is concluded, the demo will probably also be optimized to work with the same FSO build the entire campaign will be subject to.

Does that apply to your project?  You could have the Installer point to your setup .exe

Update: Turey has made it possible for TC mods to use his installer, without having to load any part of FS2...
