Title: Setup Companion

Introducing Setup Companion Beta 0.5

Setup Companion is designed to be the Ninite for the working man. I love Ninite as a tool, they do a wonderful job. However, their deployment options are designed for big business (understandably, that's where they make their money), and accordingly cost big dollars. This isn't helpful for the 2-10 person computer store out there.

So I decided to make my own Ninite. This is a setup based on the wonderful open source framework Ketarin, which was designed for this very purpose. I have adopted this with some tech philosophies in mind. This tool will let you download the latest installers for the programs you need to install for your customers, and batch install those programs quickly and silently. You can update your installers automatically, choose the ones you want, and let fly!

Don't know if anyone got any use out of the program last time, but it's now up to 0.6 ( Not much in the way of bugfixes (a good thing, I might have them ironed out), just adding additional programs.
