Program to Convert Applications to Run Off U3 USB Flash Drives
« on: January 04, 2007, 01:55:42 PM »
Here is the program of your dreams for all of you that live off your USB drives (instead of a laptop or notebook pc the way you should :) ).

Quote
Now you too can convert applications to run on your new U3 USB Flash Drive. PackageFactory for U3 lets you convert any* application or EXE into a U3P Package File, for free! You can then install this U3P file onto any U3-compatible flash drive. PackageFactory for U3 works best for simple programs and applications with few support files (although you can add as many supporting DLLs and other EXEs as you need).

ยท Download PackageFactory for U3 (658 Kb)

PackageFactory for U3 is free to use for non-commercial purposes. The free version above has no restrictions and it will append "U3 build by Eure.ca" to the description of the U3P Package file.

To use PackageFactory for U3 for business purposes please support us by registering ($39.95).

* To take full advantage of U3 platform the application you convert also needs to be U3-aware, or at least rely minimally on Windows Registry.

That looks neat! Do I need a special USB device or can I just put the U3 stuff on my current USB drives?

You need a special U3-enabled flash drive.  Check out the SanDisk Cruzer Micro.

You need a U3 drive.

Don't bother, its utter wank. You need admin priveleges to install the driver, so basically any networked computer is off limits (unless you are the admin). In the end, I wiped mine. You can accomplish pretty much the same thing with an autorun.inf and a decent app launcher.
