After Build

This page allows you to run or split the package once built, or even see the compilation log. It is recommended that you test your package before distributing it!

You can split your new package using an external tool GSplit. See below why you should use GSplit.

GSplit is free and it is available at http://www.gdgsoft.com/gsplit

GSplit Description

GSplit is a free original file splitter that lets you split your large files (like Self-Extracting archives, Zip archives, multimedia, song, music, movie, backup, picture, archive, log, large text, document files…) into a set of smaller files called pieces.

These pieces are easier to:

  • copy to CD, DVD, USB Flash drive and key, and any other storage support.

  • distribute over the Internet, networks.

  • send by email (forget attached file size restrictions imposed by some ISP, pop3, SMTP and other e-mail servers).

  • upload to host accounts, file delivery services, online file hosting sites… that have restrictions on file sizes.

  • share with friends, colleagues or other users through networks and the Internet.

  • exchange using Instant Messaging clients or Instant Messenger programs…

What can GSplit do?

In addition to the features of other standard file splitters, GSplit can:

  • Create two types of pieces: disk spanned and blocked (specific size). You can enter the size for each file piece, the number of pieces you want to obtain, or the number of lines / occurrences of a pattern by piece.

  • Generate small full-featured Self-Uniting programs to restore your split files professionally. They provide your users with an intuitive Windows interface whose appearance can be customized according to your needs. GSplit is then not required in order to restore the split file.

  • Store file properties and restore them: file’s date, attributes are not lost contrary to batch files.

  • Perform fast checks to detect file corruption (size, offset, CRC32) and to give you the assurance that your files are successfully restored by your users. When a piece is corrupted, you are notified about it, so you just need to get a new copy of that piece, not the whole set.

  • Split very large files (bigger than 4 GB).

  • Customize piece files according to your needs (size, filenames, title, author…), leave additional space on disks, create pieces without headers (useful for text-based files like large server log files).

  • Support splitting multiple files back-to-back in one time, include batch (automating) and command line options.

  • Work in your own language: multilanguage support is available (English, French - Français…) for GSplit, GUnite and Self-Uniting programs.

  • Split large text and similar files like large server log files by number of lines or occurrences of a specified pattern.

  • Show you elapsed and estimated times during the splitting & uniting operations. You can also pause/resume the splitting operation.

  • Store settings into profiles and let you use these settings for different files, remember MRU files and folders, automatically try to find out the best splitting settings…

  • Integrate Windows Explorer to let you split your files directly from the context menu.

GSplit finally features an intuitive graphical user interface that makes operations easy and fast. It also provides you with advanced options for pieces and Self-Uniting executable files… GSplit lets you split any file in a snap!

Possible scenario

1) Compress your files into a single executable one

2) Split this file into small pieces for easier distribution on USB sticks or over the Internet.

3) You can configure the Self-Uniting Executable file (SFU) created by GSplit to automatically restore the Self-Extracting Executable file (SFX) and then execute the latter.

4) The SFX extracts your image files to the user’s destination folder and then closes.

5) The SFU which was waiting on the end of the SFX deletes the latter (because it is not required anymore) and then exits.

This scenario is possible with the unique features provided by both GSplit and Paquet Builder.
