files "on-the-fly" without
unpacking them to the hard disk - Due to a
special architecture, when you start an application compiled
with Chameleon Flash, your files are not extracted into any
temporary directories, which protects your files against being
stolen. After you compile an application, all its files are
built into one executable file and are not extracted anywhere.
- Trial-limited applications - Chameleon Flash
enables you to limit the functionality of
your application for the user to have to register the application
and enter a license key in order to disable the limitations. It
will allow you to earn money using your products. Or you can offer

system may load large executable file quite long.

the screensaver preview and the settings menu.
- Auto-generating screensaver
An installer is the most user-friendly and comfortable way to distribute
the screensaver. Once started, it will automatically install the
screensaver on the user's computer and enable it. If the user would
suddenly like to remove the screensaver, he can easily do it using
the uninstaller coming together with the screensaver.
Chameleon Flash can be easily configured to auto-generate an installer
for your screensaver.

it. It is very convenient if the application consists of a

with chameleon flash support special commands. They allow you to
store user-defined data, work with system dialog boxes, unpack
your files to the specified location, build dynamic context menus
