A solution to have self containing exe files with RB 2008r2


from the ReadMe of my newest application:

This is an alpha version!

REALbasic 2008r2 creates Windows applications as folder with a Lib subfolder.

This application creates applications with one exe file which self extract on start.

- one executable for easy deployment
- passes throughs file pathes dropped on application
- deletes temporary files
- includes whatever data files you drop in the application folder

Your application must be:
- able to run from anywhere
- not write files to the application folder
(use application support folder)

Still to do:
- make the apps smaller (compression?)
- add some checksum to check integrity

Drop the application folder on this application to bundle them.
Works on Mac and Windows.
