Download Sites update: In the last few weeks, service at
Hotfiles has been much improved, while Download.com's service
has been much worse! My mini-reviews have been changed to
Version 2.0 of X.App released!
After the initial April 4th release of X.App 1.0, I have made a
few important revisions, and have released the next full
version of X.App. If you downloaded X.App from a site that
labeled it "v1.0" on or after April 8, you probably still have
version 2.0 (I replaced the download file with the
new version). Check the readme to be sure.
The key new feature of version 2.0 is the ability of the
executable forms to dynamically update the xapp.html file each time
that they are loaded. If you have revised your AcitveX control, or
installed your application on another machine, the CLSID will be
different from the one that was originally derived. The new
version ensures that your applications will run correctly no
matter what happens to the CLSID. Click

Turn your ActiveX controls into apps for free with X.App!
X.App is a free, lightweight utility that will create an
executable file for your ActiveX controls. It does this by
writing an HTML file that embeds the desired control, then creating
a custom executable form that opens up this HTML document in a
browser control. It's all very seamless, and looks no
different from a typical application.
- Simple, 1-form interface lets you create an application in
only a few minutes
- Ability to completely customize the executable form: choose
its size, location on the screen, caption, icon, and more! Or
make it invisible, and let the control load up its own forms!
- User-definable names for the executable form and batch
X.App works well combined with
Visual Basic Control Creation Edition
Developer City for lots of free compilers, installers, and more!
I hope to turn this site into a resource for free progamming
compilers, interpeters, utilities, etc. Check back regularly
to see what's new!
