Introduction: Make Your Own U3 Programs Using Freeware
In this Instructable were going to build U3 programs using the freeware program Package factory by eure.ca
Step 1: Getting Files
What you need:
File to turn U3 ( i recemend a program from Here)
A U3 compatible drive (Im using a sandisk cruzer micro 1GB)
and a Windows XP computer
Time to complete
Around 5 minutes*
*Including download time
Step 2: Begin Creating
So you've got package Factory now install it to any location, but for the program your turning into U3 install that to your desktop ( we need the program files). You will also need to make a new folder on youre desktop. This new folder is were the EXE, DLL, and resource files ( pics and images used by program) will go.
Step 3: Making a Simply U3 Program
A simply u3 program is made by using a program that is basically just a EXE file No dll's or resources.
the simply program im using is called freeride, it has an exe and a folder containing the resources.
If you end up with a complex program ( a program that has at least 2 dll's and resources) copy the dll's,the EXE, and the resources used by the program( that means pics and code used by the program when running, like how gimp uses pics for different brush shapes)
Step 4: MAKING THE PROGRAM
ok so the files all ready now just drag and drop the files into package factory, give it a name and a description, and click make and save were ever you want and your done!
Step 5: WARNING!!!
In the package factory program files there is a folder called cache, the folder saves all the U3 installer files made by package Factory, so if you installed it on your pen drive you'll have all the installer files coped on the pen drive.
The programs made by Package Factory have a Horrible uninstall feature, meaning the wont uninstall correctly and you'll have to sometimes delete them manually.
