PortableApps.com Installer 3.0.13
Easily package your portable apps with this effective installation tool

The PortableApps.com Installer is an easy-to-use NSIS-based tool for packaging your portable apps.

If you develop portable apps then you could of course simply make them available as raw executables, or archives. But that's not exactly the friendliest approach, as you're leaving the end user with the hassle of extracting the contents, deciding where they should go and so on. Which is why the PortableApps.com Installer may be preferable.

The program requires that you configure your application according to the PortableApps.com Format, so you'll need to do that first. It's not difficult, and essentially just provides a set of rules governing folder structures (although there's an INI file which defines your program configuration, too). Read more about this on the PortableApps.com site.

Once your applications are configured according to those rules, though, it's all very simple. Just point the Installer at your application folder and it'll package it into a straightforward executable, with a quality NSIS core, good compression rates, and multilingual interface (there's support for 71 languages).

Please note, though, the program is only licensed for use with free open source and freeware. If you intend to use the Installer for commercial tools then you'll need to contact PortableApps.com, first.

Verdict:

The PortableApps.com Installer provides a quick and easy way to package your portable applications.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
