I want to know, there is a way to generate QGIS NSIS installer with a Release build generated with Microsoft Visual C++? It is possible to generate the installer in Windows Operating system?

The QGIS installer code is available for inspection at https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/tree/master/ms-windows

Instructions for building and packaging (with Visual Studio) are provided in the install guide, section 4: https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/blob/master/INSTALL#L541
