Vim is an improved version of the vi editor written by Bram Moolenaar. The web site is www.vim.org.

The Windows installer from vim.org doesn't have a silent install mode; however, the installer put together by Steve Hall does. It is available at Sourceforge. Steve's Vim installers from 7.0.146 onwards work correctly for silent installs; however, silent uninstalls still do not work correctly.
