Please note that this bid is for a very very quick turn time. We need delivery of the software on the morning of Monday September 6.
This should be quick and easy though...
We need a software installer written. It should install a software package to a folder on a PC, create the icons, and Start Menu items.
The trick is this:
We want this installer to modify the Windows Startup so that when the PC is rebooted, as screen very much like the Windows Welcome Screen (The one that comes up on boot when you first installed Windows) pops up.
On this screen the user will be asked to click a button run the software. If they run it, then this Start Up Window should never appear again. If they do not and simply X out of this Start Up Window, then it should appear again on teh next reboot.
Like the Windows Welcome screen, our Start Up Window should have a small check box somewhere that permits the user to check: "Never display this screen again." If this is checked and they then X out of the screen, it should never come up again.
Pretty clear and simple.
