The thing that would help people use the software at friend's computers/kiosks/etc. would be the ability to chose a download that DOESN'T "install" as it does now, but it just extracts its files to a user-defined location and that would be "installed" onto a jump drive/flash drive/ZIP/floppy/CD/etc. It might also be a good idea to make the files smaller in size, or take out features to allow for floppy installation (yep, I use floppys on occasion).

Note:
(Mouser, I'm posting this here simply because as your programs are the "biggest", they require an install.)

Thanks,
-Wreckedcarzz

I use some of their programs, but I was talking about Mouser's programs. ScreenshotCaptor is one that I was hoping to be able to fit onto a floppy disk (trying to maintain my grandma's husband's Windows 98 with nothing to go by...).

Sorry, my mistake. I mustn't have read your first post properly.

You see, that's not a problem. None of mouser's programs make any entries in registry or modify something out of it's own directory. That means you can just put it in a usb-stick and take them anywhere. (afaik smiley )

as jgpaiva says, you don't actually need to install my apps, the .exe installers are actually zip conpatible files, and so you can just unpack them using any zip compatible program, and run them from a usb drive, etc without installing smiley
