We had a discussion a while ago about wanting to be able to download zip files with the contents of some of the programs to use without an installer.

I'm happy to say that ever some exhausting days, all donationcoder.com programs now come in dual-use form.

They are downloaded as .exe files which you can simply double-click to install.

But the .exe files are really zip-compatible self-extracting executables, which you can open in any zip program, or else right click and drag-n-drop to unpack (with most archive tools), so that you can extract the contents of the archive manually.

If you extract the contents manually you will get a folder which is already in the exact state it would be on install, and you can even then run the install.exe program inside the unpacked folder if you would like to run the installer at that point, or else just run the program directly from the extracted folder (move it anywhere you want).  None of our programs require that they be run from a specific location, and all run fine without the installer, if that is what you prefer to do.

Hope the new system provides the best of both worlds for those who prefer everything automated vs. those who prefer to do it all manuall.  Wink

all of our apps should also therefor run from a usb drive, except for URL snooper which requires a network sniffing driver installation.
that could be fixable though with an alternate sniffing engine if there was enough demand.
