Readme and License Agreement

This page allows you to display a License Agreement (end users must agree in order to continue) and some “Readme” text files (important information or instructions that end users should know).

Editing texts

  • To modify the contents of the wished text field, press the Edit button and the Rich Text Pad editor will be opened. Rich Text Pad is a nice and useful rich text editor (it works like Wordpad). You can create new texts or load existing RTF files.

  • To clear the text, press Clear.

  • To use a default template, press Template and select the one you wish in the displayed menu list.

In multilanguage packages

Paquet Builder can create multilanguage packages: they are compiled with several different languages and then automatically translate the texts of their user interface in the more appropriate language at runtime (automatically determined or user-selected). The Readme/License agreement dialog can display itself in several languages: for each language you decide to compile into the package, you need normally to write a localized Readme/License agreement rich text. Use the language list to select the language in which you would like to edit the text.

Some important notes about how these wizard dialogs work:

  • If a Readme/License agreement text is not available in the language selected by end users at runtime, the package will then use the one that was written for the default language.

  • If the Readme/License agreement text of the default language is left blank, the Readme/License agreement screen will be disabled (not shown to users) even if texts for other languages are available! In fact the default language determines which wizard dialogs should be displayed to end users: be sure to first select the default language in the languages list page before you start writing welcome texts.
