This quick and easy utility helps expert users download and construct select boot disks. WinBuilder bootstraps itself on first execution. The app opens a manual and download center to allow users to choose which projects to install. The manual uses a novice-friendly interface, but this program expects experienced users. For the most part, boot disk applications are for experts only.
WinBuilder's Download Center interface simplifies procuring the boot disk applications. This app is designed from the ground up to allow users to choose from many options. Users first choose project servers. At testing, 10 servers offered 10 different boot disk applications. The Download Center then makes it easy to download only what is needed for each chosen application. Users merely pick from four pull-down items: Minimum, Recommended, Complete, or Beta. The app helpfully displays the number of files and their total size for each boot disk application. In addition, simple checkboxes easily remove specific scripts from the download process. After download, WinBuilder offers simple installation wizards for each of the downloaded applications.
WinBuilder is one of the most easy-to-use boot disk creation tools in the genre. Testers praised its small size, fair memory overhead, simple instructions, and robust application installation wizards. This freeware belongs in the toolbox of every expert user.
WinBuilder is a utility that enables you to create boot disks based on Windows XP/Vista. WinBuilder itself is a very flexible program to which a lot of talented people have devoted time to create and publish projects that can be downloaded from the internal download center. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
