I think the CAB is nicer. I've thumbed through a few of them and several have resource files, so you can't just post the .vb for it anyway. At least one of them had a setup.dll though, which will be a problem to deal with depending on what it is doing.

We'll need working a ADO runtime next to make ADO enabled .VB work

Suggest adding "planetarium" tag to "The Sky":

https://www.hpcfactor.com/scl/523/Bisque_Software/The_Sky/version_1....

Edit: and changing "starts" to "stars"...and maybe adding "star" and "star gazing"

My next project is consolidating the tags. I went a little crazy before with adding super obscure ones.
I’m not disregarding your suggestion per se, when we start that, I’ll remember to take a further look at this program. You are always free to suggest new ideas! I’m always happy to hear them.
Unless C:Amie disagrees?
In the meantime I will fix starts because, quite frankly, when we look at the night sky, we see stars, not starts.

Well, to be fair, we have a couple of telescopes that see the starts of stars.

That ticker in the forum page which shows a featured SCL program I'm still getting the "undefined 1.04 - Porta-Pinball is a freeware pinball game"
Does this occur for you as well? Or still a cache issue?

When I click on the developer name then not only the specified apps appears no...every app is shown.
Also on the search site. When I checked search for developer every app is shown in alpha. Order.

Yes, I noticed that yesterday. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet. It's only been like it for 24 hours or so.

Edit: It's resolved. SQL had an OR instead of an AND

Thank you!
So I need some help. What is the correct analog to “Shareware” for the SCL?

Like I struggle to put the correct category for SpreadCE. What should the license type be? Like there’s no ads per se just a cute little nag screen that’s not obtrusive and only when you access the file menus not actually use the program itself

But it’s perpetual though. There’s no time limits. Only the cute nag screen in the file menu.
