View Thread: .Not for shareware
  • User profile image

    There are several companies taking advantage of the .Net framework.

    What companies? 

    Are there any shareware companies that you know of that use the .Net framework in their products (non-developer products that is)?

    I'm glad to hear about point 4.  I hope that C# Builder has the same features for it's installer, anybody know?

    And honestly in this day and age a 20meg download isn't that big for something that will provide you access to so much.

    It's a big ask, especially since your competing against Win32 programs that don't ask the customer to jump through hoops. Like I said Microsoft could easly change this by releasing some cool .Net apps like free games or what-not which would entice people to install the framework.

    By the way I do use the framework at work to connect to my Access database and to interact with a PDF conversion program I use but I don't have VS.Net. I use Notepad and SharpDevelop.
