    I need an executable file:

    It will download 7 files from a server,
    It will run a file after all downloads are finished.
    It must work on any OS.
    You must send source to me. (I'll change download URL's)


    Please pm me your offers.

    Good jobs, thank you.

    That's not gonna happen.

    Unless you mean windows versions when you say "any OS"?

    You will not get one executable that will run on windows and linux and freebsd and solaris and...etc

    different OS's use different libraries, so this is not possible.

    all windows use the same architecture, so you can use a single file for all windows machines. Since these dominate the market, why not just focus on these?

    People use *nux for this exact reason.

    You might be able to do something like this with Java, but then you have to make sure that all of the machines have the Java runtimes installed, and depending on where you want to place those files, and what you want to "run" after the download, there might be security problems as well.

    I agree with the other posters, this is going to be far more doable with MSWin, which will get a large majority of the systems out there, but not all of them.

    "Any OS" means all windows versions. Sorry for mistake.

    I sent a PM to Choronzon.

    If you think you can, please pm me with your offer.

    Thanks for all posts.

    No, I'll use it for my own installations. Not for pay per installs.

    Java isn't true choice. I think C++ supports sockets.

    For Vista&Sp2, you need user permission for write to disk, right?

    Go to rentacoder.com and put it up for a bid. Seems simple enough to do in Java, and you'll probably find someone there to do it for cheap.

    It will download 7 files from a server,

    HTTP, OK

    It will run a file after all downloads are finished.

    THAT DOES?

    It must work on any OS.

    WINDOWS, LINUX, OSX

    You must send source to me. (I'll change download URL's)
