Paquet Builder has so many features that you may feel lost when you begin with it. This quick tutorial explains you how to create a functional package in some steps. This is interesting for beginners who want to discover the basic functions of Paquet Builder.
Goal: add source files to a package and create the latter.
Paquet Builder automatically displays the About your package page. Enter the title for your package, something like “My Archive Tutorial”. If the company information fields are blank, please fill in them too.
In the “Default Destination Folder” field, you can specify where you would like to extract the files by default. The default choice is %MYDOCDIR%: this variable identifies the “My Documents” path on the destination computer. Enter the following value: %MYDOCDIR%\My Archive Tutorial. When you run the package, the latter will display something like: “c:\users\My user\my documents\My Archive Tutorial” as the default folder.
You can also click Edit and, in the Rich Text Pad editor, you can enter a welcome message such as “Welcome! This will unpack the files for My Archive Tutorial”. It’s up to you. Press OK to save changes.
When you click "EXE output configuration" in Build, the compilation page is displayed. Enter the path to the folder where the package file should be created (the executable file you will distribute) and its filename in “Package Filename”.
Of course, a lot of options can be customized such as "Paquet Archive" or the images that appear in the wizard.
