This posting is firstly to thank Lightning UK for what is truly a beautiful burning application and to express gratitude for that. Secondly it is also to share what might be a very useful application for community members of this forum, many of whom might work with disc images and end users (like me!).
The full story can be read here:-
Members (including myself) of the 911cd community were using ImgBurn in an ISO2EXE compression/distribution/self burning application, which was run from a batch file.
The basic idea was to compress (using 7zip) a disc image into a self executable file which would burn itself (using ImgBurn) when run. This made a great way of passing a reduced size disc image to someone who knew nothing about burning and would appreciate an automated burning procedure - in essence, all an end user would need to do was put a blank CDR into their drive.
A solution for regular .ISO was reached and is called ISO2EXE.
A solution for audio CDs was reached but using a different method for CD burning since .cue and .bin were not supported by ImgBurn, until now.
Thus the inclusion of .cue / .bin into ImgBurn was exciting because it meant a way was now possible to unify the applications into what has now been named CASBAH......Cd and AudioCd Self Burning Application Helper. Credit for this goes to the very talented jaclaz, and also to skewltek and cdob, all of which are 911cd members.
Two suggestions were made during the development of CASBAH which might interest you.
The idea of creating a smallish "targeted" version of IMGBURN for use in this kind of 3rd party app, and also the concept of "Embedding" the 7z SFX exe creation in IMGBURN itself.
Best regards to all here
