BoxedApp is a developer library that provides a set of functions for emulating a file system and a system registry for an application. Using these functions, you can create virtual files, fake registry entries, keys and values. You can launch processes from memory directly, use ActiveX without registration, embed runtimes like .Net, Flash and VC++ redistributable. Supports both x86 and x64 platforms. Samples for C++, Delphi, VB6, C#, VB.Net are available.
Why and when is it useful?
When an application must run properly even if it doesn't have the right to write to the system registry and to the file system.
When an application uses DLL and files, which are to be kept secure, and because of that you can't save them to disk.
When an application needs ActiveX but doesn't have an installer because it must run instantly, without the installation (for example, when it's a portable application that runs from a flash card).
Just a quick example: suppose, your application uses a Flash ActiveX player to display a Flash movie or video. The end users would need a Flash player ActiveX to allow your application work properly. Also, keep in mind that Flash player is not capable of loading files directly from memory. That exposes two major problems: first, you would have to install a Flash player ActiveX, and second, you would have to have the movie in a file. BoxedApp SDK solves these problems: you simply create a virtual file that contains the flash movie, another virtual file that contains the Flash player ActiveX DLL, and virtual registry entries that point to that virtual file. That's it. Now the application "thinks" that that the Flash player ActiveX is actually installed, so the Flash player works just as if the movie file was actually there.
