Create your own U3 USB stick applications
Thanks to a comment from Seth on my last post about U3 USB sticks, I got the following tip about Package Factory: An application you can use to create U3 installations from your own applications, and install them on the U3 USB stick. I tried it on various programs and it all worked. You just need the exe and if necessary the required DLL, click the ‘create’ button and there you have it! Your own program on your own U3 stick. You can download Package Factory for free from http://www.eure.ca.

“There is a program called Package Factory (can be found at http://www.eure.ca/) that, when used, can “fool” the u3 program into thinking that the install is a u3 application. You need the appropriate .dll and the .exe file, but it works! I can run my GBA emulator like a u3 program instead of exploring the drive and going to the folder and opening it from there. Great little program. And it’s FREE!”
