  • PE-BUNDLE

    Is PE-Bundle THE BEST EVER?????
    http://www.CollakeSoftware.com
    --------
    Have you tried it?
    What's your opinion
    --------
    I have managed to "bundle" one of my application.
    Originally it was 1 module EXE,1 module Runtime-DLL, 1 module WINLIFT-DLL,
    6 helper-modules as DLL all dependant on calls into Runtime-DLL,
    DBGHLP.DLL from Win2000,DZGT32.DLL from DynaZip,AddZip32.DLL and AddUZip32.Dll
    from Stephen Darlington.

    Alltogether it became one EXE 1.4 MB uncompressed
    ------
    Compressing with PE-Compress from same CollakeSoftware, it was down to 526 kb
    ------
    I owe you a big "THANK YOU" Jeremy Collake!
    ------
    And it works like a charm, the trick was to bundle DLL in correct order..

    I have just registered my copy and think its great - pretend to people I have just 1 exe instead of VBs dozens of DLL and OCXs !!! It also works when compressed with Neolite which I've used for about a year now.

      Adrian - so now you just have one single 2mb exe that says 'Hello World'
      Seriously though, Ive never tried it with VB apps before - how did you find it, and how does it work? what about msvbvm60.dll etc? I still have to use VB a lot (hopefully thatll change with the next release of PBDLL )
      Thanks,
      Wayne

        Wayne , I meant that I have 1 PowerBasic program (and hide the support DLLs) instead of the competition writing in VB and having to hand out CDs for the setup program and supporting stuff !

          Instructions for installing A PB application with support DLLs:

          Copy all files on disk to the same folder/directory.

          Instructions for un-installing A PB application with support DLLs:

          Delete the folder/directory


          These instructions can usually be executed correctly even when the user is, um, er, well, let's see.."not on the short list for any of this year's Nobel prizes."

            MCM,
            I don't think myself, and Adrian C, are afraid of "less intelligent" customers
            I think both of us have more "sophisticated" reasons to bundle EXE and DLLs together...

              Freds right, I let my users just copy the .exe to the desktop, no worries about menus, directories etc. And yes, I have seen users run setup programs from the desktop - obvious because of lots of .dlls, .inf files etc on the desktop !
              Also the uninstall feature is simple - the delete key !

                Be afraid.

                Be very afraid.
