Zero Install for Windows allows you to integrate applications into your desktop environment as you are accustomed to from classic setup programs: Start menu entries, file type associations, entries in context menus, etc.. All the advantages of Zero Install such as automatic updates, parallel usage of multiple application versions and easy application removal are preserved.
By default desktop integration applies only to the current user so that every user can have their own working environment with their desired applications. Optionally administrators can also apply desktop integration machine-wide.
You can automatically synchronize your application list and desktop integration between multiple computers.
