Free license for SEAU (creates nice installers)
« on: November 13, 2006, 11:28:53 PM »
Hi folks,

I have been offered a free license to any single software at http://gammadyne.com. I saw this utility there and immediately thought of all the good programmers at DC.

I have no need for anything there, but I will transfer the license to this (or any other) to anyone here who would like it. If more than one of you wants one, I'll see what I can do.

Best wishes to you all ...

Clif

Here's the program that caught my eye: ($49 value)

Self-Extracting Archive Utility (SEAU) builds a professional software installation program in a single compressed executable file.  The installer runs on all of the 32-bit Windows platforms (9x, NT, 2000, ME, XP, 2003).  SEAU offers full support for uninstallation, multiple languages, interface customization, license agreements, readme files, file associations, DOS batch operations, multiple disk spanning, DLL installation, automated installations, patches, expiration dates, shared files, command line archive building, and much more.

SEAU creates executable installation programs that are self-contained in a single file.  A single file is easily downloaded, requires no software such as WinZip to decompress, and ensures that all installation files are present.

The installer's overhead is only 105 KB and the compression engine achieves a very high compression ratio.  You will be amazed at how small SEAU can make the archive.

SEAU can optionally provide support for uninstalling the product.  The user will be able to uninstall the product by one of the following methods:

    * The "Add/Remove Programs" option in Control Panel.
    * A Start Menu shortcut (optional).
    * A Desktop shortcut (optional).

Hm, that GUI is pretty ugly - I wonder how they can charge $49 for it when there's http://nsis.sourceforge.net . (An install builder creating nsis scripts might be pretty interesting, btw).

I agree, he'd be doing himself a favor if he'd give it a facelift.
