Benefits of GetRight®ToGo for Shareware Authors & Software Developers
If you have a large, or even medium sized file for your users to download, GetRightToGo can provide you with many benefits.
Reduce your Bandwidth.
  • All your customers will be able to resume downloads if any errors occur. Nobody will be restarting the download from the beginning, wasting your bandwidth.
  • GetRightToGo can include checksums, so in the unlikely event of a problem, it can identify and only re-download the section of the file with an error, without having to restart everything from scratch.
  • There is the ability to do a custom "Startup" page in the downloader where a user must enter a registration code before even starting the download. If you want to limit the downloads to paying customers, this is a great way, especially if your files are large. (How To.)

    Increase install rates.
  • You can set your installer to be automatically run when it is finished, so the user won't forget (as they can if they just download the file into a folder or forget to resume the download if there's a problem.)
  • It even adds a shortcut on the desktop if the user chooses to finish the download later--this makes it very easy for anyone to find and continue the download.

    Promotions, Advertising, etc.
  • Embedded Webpage Screenshot You can embed a web page in the download window itself, this is a page you design and host on your server, so you have utter control. GetRightToGo uses an embedded Internet Explorer control to show the page, so anything you can do with IE is possible. (Sample picture to the right.)
  • You can use the web page for anything you like. Offer a coupon to buy before the download finishes. Promote other programs of your own, or join an affiliate program and promote complementary products. Show a tutorial for your program. Or even show advertising.
  • You can use a different webpage when a download finishes...this allows you to accurately track download initiations and completions of your product!

  • You can customize the download application so it looks like something you created.
  • GetRightToGo can include your own names, logos, icons, etc.
  • You can even create a totally customized user interface--match your website exactly!

    Minimal changes.
  • GetRightToGo applications fit into the download process...instead of using their web browser or another tool to download the whole file, they use GetRightToGo.
  • You do not have to change your URLs, your server, your installer or anything in your program.
  • GetRightToGo builds completely standalone EXEs. There is nothing for your users to install or uninstall, just a single small EXE to download and run! When the download is done, the EXE can simply be deleted.

  • We're shareware authors too, and know there are very different needs for a company with 1 or a few programs compared to a company with dozens of programs.
  • The Four Application license lets you build as many test programs as you need to get everything customized just to your liking...then you can build a Release version to distribute to you users. If you use a non-versioned URL (.../xyz_setup.exe), then even as you make updates to your program, the downloader won't need to change. (That's what we've done ourselves; it's one less thing to update for a new release too.)
  • All this is only $49.95 for Shareware authors. Or you can choose one one of the other license types and build an unlimited number of downloaders! And if you really need five, just let us know :)

  • If you're a shareware author or software developer, you probably want a nice list of features. Just download the builder tool and give it a try before you buy!
