AAARGH! Enough with the bold type!
: The prob is that infidel as u have known with my q? I dont have much Idea about web publishing. So even if I write a page which contains an label saying Click to download then how to actually make the msi file available to user desktop.
All you do is create an anchor tag and specify the url of the file. I mean really, take a moment to read a basic HTML tutorial.
: And another good q? is that is it possible to control an msi file to not contain vb runtimes ???
I wasn't aware that the P&D Wizard created MSIs. News to me. At any rate, it's been a long time since I used the P&D, but it seems to me you could specify the files you wanted to include.
: The real problem of size is alos due to the soundtracks I am using in the game. The sound track folder in uncompress sate has 2.2 Mbs bcas they r in wav format.
Well then there's not much we can do about that, now is there?
: Doesnt the msi Installer compress wav format ?????
Why are you asking me? You're the one claiming to have an MSI. The NSIS install system can compress everything. I imagine other install systems do too. A file is a file is a file. Not all files, however, lend themselves to compression. It depends on how much repetition of data there is at the byte level.
: And if it doesnt shd I use Mp3 format but I use sndplaysound for playing files which is very easy.
Makes no difference to me.
: And BTW the main form has around 40 pages of code as checked by word editor.
: Which host You prefer and free is the keyword
I can't recommend any as I don't use any. "Free" is likely to come with severe bandwidth limitations no matter where you go so if a lot of people start downloading your files you may have to cough up some cash to keep your site online 24/7.
: : All you need is some HTML files. Easy as pie.
: Certainly not for me
Unless you're a chimpanzee, HTML is easy as pie. Probably easy for chimpanzees too.
: Is GPL the code name for Russian Federation Hackers society ?? Sorry but cant stop me anymore.
Seriously, do you know how to use Google?
: Whats GPL ??? Any good website to learn that.
: And how will I assign my source file an GPL licence.
You are the author of your code, therefore you are the copyright holder of your code, therefore you say "this code is released under the GPL".
: I dont want an hacker to put a code like
: fso.deletefolder ("c:/windows")
: which will not make the user of my game feel like a king.
What would stop a hacker from doing that anyways? That's why the GPL requires source code to be made available if a modified version of the program is made available. So people can see for themselves exactly what is different or new.
: If I am giving it free I will like to give in the right hand not the wrong one.( just a thought)
: So this GPL thing will provide restriction to any code change also.
No, people can change anything they want, but if they try to distribute a version of your program then they have to also provide their source code. Software licenses are legal agreements. There will always be criminals who ignore them no matter what they specify, but I'd be willing to be that anyone bothering to modify the source to make a new public version would be more than willing to participate honestly.
