New Version of PADGen ( Released

ASP announced recently that a new version of PADGen ( is available – utility that helps software developers create portable application description (PAD) files. This is the first major update to the PADGen™ PAD™ generation tool in over a year.

Does your software support Windows 7?  If so, you need to update to the new PADGen.  In addition to Windows 7, the new PADGen supports a streamlined and standardized list of Windows operating systems.

Are you switching to Mac? The new PADGen supports a standard OSX type rather than specific version numbers.  This future-proofs your submissions.  iPhone is new as well.

This support is based on the PAD 3.10, available to download sites for a few months.  While there will be some inevitable transitioning between old and new specs, the future appears to belong to Windows 7 and iPhones so we urge all authors to convert to the platform which supports them: download PADGen

Special thanks to Oliver Grahl for the development of this update.

Dennis Reinhardt is Vice President of the ASP and chair of the PAD Specification Committee.

    I’m just wondering that why ASP does not provide PAD file for this cool program?

    I agree 100% that PADGen should have it’s own PAD file. I would certainly be happy to host it at http://www.fileparade.com. Since we repoll our catalog about once a month, this would also allow to keep our information current (assuming PADGen’s PAD file was updated to reflect any updates to the software).
