There are three methods we can select one about where you are interested to store the preloading package application files.

Second one specially for those who want to create a package and want to run from either location but preloading files should be stored under the executable directory, also useful for if you want to make a full portable software in case if you are using this package on computers other than yours.

Third method if you wish to store application date under custom location of your PC.
For example; %temp% 

  • You can capture more than one software in only one cameyo package, and add a menu entry for each software within your cameyo package.
  • You can export  the files within your cameyo package and can add sole of your own or delete that one which are not required for proper function of software.
Registry settings one of the important feature of cameyo, here we can edit a registry key or export registry setting or delete a registry key . do magic if you know how to play with registry settings.
Cameyo also provides a integration feature which tells about how your application will works with windows explorer.

  • Registry is soul of many software of windows without complete and properly configured registry setting many software will no longer works for your PC, if you disturbed them. Or  edit them if you do not what you are doing.
