What I need is a windows based desktop application that can be used by 'dummies' to create a file downloader/installer program. What I mean is a small executable file that will be downloaded by users and when run it will download the larger main file from a specified location. Similar to what kazaa uses. I have an existing example I will send you if you request it in your bid or comment. Here are the installer creation program features I need:
Ability to specify program size.
Set program background color (color palette)
Specific program title and version number.
Specify text area (with font, colors, weight)
Add an icon file
Add a graphic or logo
Specific the larger file location to download from
Larger file description
Output EXE feature
The actual downloader/installer needs these features:
SMALL FILE SIZE
Status (paused, initializing, downloading, finished)
Estimated time remaining
Received (ie. 1,250.00 KB or 3,800.50 KB)
Ability to use a proxy (specify server and port)
Pause and resume button (including if the program is closed in the middle of the download, when reopened it can be resumed).
After the downloader finishes downloading the program there should be a 'next' button that enables. Clicking next will open the larger EXE file and begin the installation process automatically.
So again what I need is a program which I can use to generate this type of downloader/installer with ease. It must have the above features. I want it to be a step by step 'wizard' process where I have full control over the look of the downloader. And when done it outputs the downloader file. The downloader MUST HAVE A VERY SMALL FILE SIZE! The generator program should also have a 'file' menu option with open, save, and exit (so users can save creation processes and reopen them). A settings, help, and about tab. It should also be password protected with a single static code. Customers enter the code once and it's unlocked, they never have to enter it again.
The generator program should also have a splash screen.
Please post a comment if you have any questions.
