I would just like to say that this is possibly the greatest atrocity ever committed by a Mac program. Better to lead them through setting up preferences correctly in the first place so they know how to do it later, than have them go looking for a wizard later. If anything this should just import from previous clients, then drop them into the accounts screen in preferences.

I disagree strongly with kbotc on this matter. You should be able to be up and running in an application without ever touching the Preferences window.

(In [14318]) Outline and the most important functionality (account setup) of the setup assistant.

Feel free to write good text for the three existing panes and to add some sort of basic preferences configuration pane for it :)

There's a #define in AIAdium.m ALWAYS_RUN_SETUP_WIZARD which can be changed to TRUE to see it with an existing configuration. Otherwise, it runs when no accounts are configured at startup.

The AdiumyButler image is by Wes Underwood, of course.

Refs #9.

Improvements may be made to the setup assistant, but the most important part is done so marking the ticket as fixed.
