that ALP packages do not contain, install, change nor replace any system
files! You can safely click "Yes to all" when asked to replace
some existing files - this will not affect anything else than ALP on your
machine. Even if you delete, alter, move manually any ALP files in a
mistake this will not cause any side effects except for the ALP, of
ALP Runtime re-distributable package.
Type: Self-extract installation
Instructions: You need the ALP engine in order to run ALP
applications not bundled with it. Some of them may be packed with it but others (especially
freeware and some shareware applications) may require you to install ALP
separately. This minimizes the size of the download so many developers may
choose to not include ALP in each downloadable archive of their
To install ALP Runtime download it and choose Open, then follow the
instructions. If you are asked to replace some files accept it (click Yes
to All). ALP installation will not replace any system files.
What will be installed:
The ALP engine binaries, ALP Run-time library (newObjects ActiveX
Pack1), ALPFrame browser. A program group will be created in the start
menu (newObjects/ALP) where a shortcut to the ALPViewer will appear. If
you need to apply license to your ALP installation - open the ALPFrame viewer and
follow the "Licensing" link.
There is a recommendation to the ALP developers who build setups to
register their applications with ALPFrame viewer. This allows, when started
ALPFrame to show the installed ALP applications in an automatically
generated home page.

Latest ALP Run-time library (newObjects ActiveX Pack1 family)

|ALP supports Windows
95 and later with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later version
installed. This means that the ALP itself and the applications that
use only its core features and its run-time library will run on all the
Windows versions: 9X/ME/NT4/2000/XP/2003 and later.
ALP is open environment which allows the applications to use
external features. Therefore some applications may require certain
versions of system or 3-d party components they use in addition to the
ALP's own components. The smal ALP application below is intended to check your
system for the most popular components that are not part of ALP itself and offer you links to updates you
may need. Although most applications include a similar system check
utility, updating your system now will eliminate the need to do it later.
The application below makes sense for the older Windows versions - Windows
95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0. If you have later Windows version
installed you already have the most popular versions of the most
frequently used external components and the typical ALP applications
should be able to work without need of anything else.
Download (Self-extract exe)
Instructions: You must have ALP installed first! Download and
run the application. A page will appear with the suggested downloads (if
any). The suggested downloads are the latest versions of the tested
components reported compatible with all the Windows versions. You can
download newer ones (from the Microsoft site for example), but note that
Microsoft abandoned support for some older versions of its operating
systems and the most recent versions of some components published on MS
site may not be compatible with your OS if it is older than Windows 2000.
This application is intended to offer assistance to the users who are
still using older Windows versions.
