I would like to offer a real estate home evaluation program to my web site visitors. I have posted it on my web, however, when I create a link to the file, all that shows is the index and sub files. Can anyone tell me how to create a downloadable link?
Re: Create downloadable exe. file
Thanks for your advice. I tried to insert that code through FrontPage but it didn’t work. I am a novice when it comes to writing script. I am probably doing it wrong. I inserted it into this line
After I inserted your line, it looked like this
What did you use to make the .exe, you need to find a better installer if you are getting errors like this. This has nothing to do with your html or frontpage. I actually reccomend that you do not use frontpage, it is a terrible editor, wysiwyg will create bad pages, so do the html by hand. I reccomend first page or dreamweaver if you can get a copy.
I have taken your advice and zipped all files and it works. That is to say, a visitor can download from my web. However, after downloading, they must unzip the files and click on “setup.exe” in order to install the program. Can anyone tell me what I have to do so that it will just place the “setup.exe” icon on their desktop?
This is the background with respect to my Real Estate Evaluation program. Perhaps it is relevant, perhaps not. Anyway…It was built as a giveaway CD. The program was built with Visual Basic. The setup/packing was done with Install Shield. The programmer that built my program has since moved to Hong Kong and not available to help me.
1. Is what I am trying to do, possible?
2. Do I have to have the source code to make changes to the program?
3. Is there any software to solve this problem?
Any help would be appreciated,
