Basically the idea is to create a self-extracting, self-burning .exe in order to be able, for example to send to a (more or less "technically impaired") friend or relative a CD and make sure he/she will be able to have it burned properly.
The existing batches, cda2sfx, iso2sfx and, more recently CASBAH, were part of the solution, i.e. it made easy for you (presumably NOT technically impaired) to send to a technically impaired friend a selfburning app, but what if one of your technically impaired friends needed to send to another technically impaired friend a CD?
Actually nothing really difficult, but some people tend to associate the black background of Command Prompt to black magic , so:
damian666 over at MSFN was so kind to create a full GUI self-contained app, that should help the latter.
SELFBURNER.EXE embeds IMAGEBURN 2.4.0, with many, many thanks to it's Author, lightning_uk
(though the IMGBURN.EXE app is completely FREEWARE a small donation is suggested, and truly worth it)
The program works with both .iso's and Audio CD's (using .cue files).
Please find attached Release 1.1 of it.
(don't be fooled by the release number , 1.0 was ALPHA and 1.1 is BETA, please report any problems with it)
Maybe one of our more "graphical" and "tutorial" inclined members, like ispy may want to produce a small tutorial for it ....
UPDATE 18th April 2008:
A prompt has been added to ask for confirmation before starting the self-extracting archive.
(just in case someone double clicks on it accidentally)
Released version is now 1.4.0, and includes latest programs:
