BoxedApp Packer is a developer utility for converting your regular full-fledged applications to single self-sustaining executable files that don’t require the installation in order to be run. That literally means that you can squeeze all ActiveX controls, dynamic libraries, and just all kinds of files that your original application depends on into a single executable file and run it just as if that was a regular application installed the regular way.
Packed in a single binary, your applications become ultra-mobile and can be run instantly from a removable disk or from a network location. Installation-free applications would carry their original functionality and be capable of utilizing the full power of your PC. At the same time, they wouldn’t require any special privileges or affect shared computer resources, such as disk space or registry, as all embedded objects would be extracted directly into memory and utilize virtual space and registry instead of the physical ones.
Even further, the functionality of your single-executable applications could be expanded by adding plugins to them. Plugins take advantage of a special API – BoxedApp SDK API, which allows creating virtual files “on the fly”, working with the virtual registry, and a lot more. For instance, your application, when it starts, could load necessary DLLs over a network or through the Internet and then use them as if they were physically available on your hard drive. BoxedApp Packer is the way to making your software light, mobile and truly flexible.
