(49k) Self extraction packer. The packer EXE itself is 23kB (no DLL is needed) after being compressed with UPX. It bases on compression with zlib 1.1.4. You start it and simply drag & drop a file associated with an application (i.e. MyDocument.xls) in the program-window. A new self extractable EXE will be generated. The new filename in that case would be 

"2003-05-26 (17.34) MyDocument.EXE" (the time of the xls-File).

The when you start this EXE it self extracts in the temporary folder, starts
the associated application and then calmly waits for the termination of that
process. After that process has ended, it checks if the file has been changed and repacks it if necessary. The temporary file then will be deleted.
