Working hard? Need a break? Why not run a fake installer and "wait" until it gets finished! Or even better, create your own bogus install routine that looks like a real one - and have your computer busy.
A great idea for the Fancy Delphi Application Contest ;-)
Take-A-Break InstallerTake-A-Break Installer is a "fake" installation program that allows you to create a bogus install routine so it looks like your computer is in use. It is very useful if you need a break, but don't have an excuse for not working :)
It allows you to create a fake install application that looks very similar to an install shield or ms installer application.
The purpose of this app is very silly and trivial but I have had a lot of people interested, so I thought I'd share my source.
The T-A-B comes in 2 parts:
- The “Installer” app: this is the dummy installer application, it is stored in the “Editor” application and extracted then the fake installer settings are written to this app. This is the file you want to run to start your bogus install routine.
- The “Editor” app: this is the main part of the application. You open this, choose your fake install settings, then click “Create Installer”. It will extract the dummy “Installer” application from within itself, then write the fake install setting to that file (Setup.exe).
