Project Packer can create 2 Output Formats:


PPA Format (Project Packer Archive):

oThe PPA Format is a new archive type, for files, directories and program code.  

oIt is the standard option in Project Packer, because it has a small file-size.

oBecause it is not an executable, it cannot be infected by viruses.

oYou can send a PPA archive as attachment in your emails.

oTo open a PPA archive, the packerviewer.exe file is needed.  The Packet Viewer is a part of the Project Packer install-file: ppinstall.exe. When your users have Project Packer installed on their systems, The Packer Viewer is ready to use.


EXE Format (Standalone Executable File):

oProject Packer can create Standalone Executable Files.  

oYour users don't need the Packer Viewer or Project Packer on their systems to run these EXE-files.  

oAll components are included in the EXE-file.  

oIf you like small file-sizes for your projects, or you need to send your projects as email attachment, use the PPA format.
