After that it seems my nsis installer build went further than the previous
time. However, now it failed with following log. I am going to try to
remove reference to npvlc.dll from vlc.win32.nsi script file and try. But i
was wondering if this is expected or if i need to fix some module
externally to get this resolved more appropriately. Thanks
