CDInterface Studio 2 Major Realese

At last. After a lot of months of hard work , at CDI's first birthday ,we have finished the new version 2. The application was rewritten many times.

CDInterface Studio is free tool to create autorun CD-Menus.

Now CDI Studio is dot net , this means that you will need the .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package to run. Also now uses SQLite , which is a more powerfull database engine. CD-Menus are more customizable.... read more

CDInterface 2 under development.

The new version of CDInterface Studio is under development for a few months now, so the development of version 1 stoped.Hopefully will be ready at the end of the year. It is rewriten from the start and it is a lot of work (if you can contribute in any way , send me an e-mail). Will not be compatible with version 1 , but will have more powerful and flexible features that will cover most users needs. The main benefit is that the user will be able to design his own form to use in the cd-menu.
Will allow you to create three types of projects:
1)CD-Menu : You will have to enter only links to your files , change captions of controls , and set background pictures. You will be able to create a new cd-menu from a template.
2)Template : The purpose of template is to make a predefine cd-menu , so will need less work to make a new cd-menu. With this one will be able to make more changes. You will be able to add, remove , resize and change positions of Controls. Also you will be able to add pages. If you want a database-driven cd-menu , you will be able to set and connect it with the controls.
3)Database : Will hold informations for controls like captions and links.

Help wanted

Help wanted from delphi programmers.Delphi 7 will be used for the compilation of the product.It is based on the ClientDataSet component.I do not care how much expirience you are(preferably 1 year and over).

Also help wanted from designers.

You can download the source and the binarys to get an idea of what i am talking about.It is in the early stage of development so it has not yet the basic functions, is unstable and the basic source code is still changing.

Planning started.

Planning of the software has started.
