AppliCradle is a customizable, easy and simple installer and uninstaller. No coding is needed. Just make a few lines of script file. AppliCradle asks not the full license but a license per application, which makes the installer cost much less than other installers do.
Important features are:
No coding needed. Make a folder. Add your software (application) and AppliCradle files to it. Edit several lines of a script file. Compress them into a file and distribute it. The user uncompresses and runs the installer.
The installer creates the program menu group and adds shortcuts of the program(usually *.exe) and the manuals (Manual.htm or ReadMe.txt).
The user chooses whether the program shortcut also be on the desktop, in the startup menu group or in the root of Start menu. The choices are initialized by your recommendation in the script.
An example application is provided for you to test the installer and the uninstaller.
Your application needs the license to match your program binary, for the installer to run: Submit the ID the installer generates for your program, and get the license, before you compress the package.
