APM Mission Planner now has a proper installation utility!

One of the priorities of the APM team is to continue to find new ways to make it easier to use. The Mission Planner is a big part of that, with it's one-click firmware loading, but author Michael Oborne has now done it again with a great installation utility (64-bit Windows here, 32-bit here) that not only installs the Mission Planner, but also detects which APM you have and installs the right driver for it. That's like five manual steps eliminated! 

Great work, Michael!

(As always, it will also check for updates at startup and download the latest version)

It very nice to see that some people have talent and will to create such fine software. Thank you.

For me, I hope there will always be classic no install zip version as APM MP (and majority of software) don't actually need installation. I like APM MP portable

I don't know if this was covered before but is there any plans to support Macs?

Dave: The MP works fine under Base Camp or Parallels.

I am always hugely impressed by the speed and diversity of Michaels work. It is an enourmous task to research and implement so many different technologies whilst at the same time maintaining structure and simplicty for such a broad range of users and platforms. This work is not just of value to uav, arduino and apm but to all microcontroller communities everywhere!
