Make an encouraging donation

If you like this freeware, become a free software militant : make a small encouraging donation (10 Euros would be nice, more would be wonderful) !


I thank the generous donors (I was the first surprised one <:o))) and all the people who encouraged me, assisted, advised, suggested, so that this software becomes what it is already today. To only quote the most dynamic persons, but without forgetting the others : Didier, Pierre, Bruno, Yannick, Jacques, Alain, Daniel, etc. Each exchange with them is a new moment of pleasure.

Automatic installers

Automatic installers are heavier to download than a manual installation, but manage all for you.
IMPORTANT FOR MAC OS X : someone reported that AnaBuilder's launcher is not working properly when placed in a directory with a name containing a space. Put AnaBuilder application in a folder name "/OnMyDisk/AlbertDupond/" rather than "/On My Disk/Albert Dupond/"

For other machines, ask me...

The software, the documentation and optional extensions can now be updated automatically from the software.
