Default BS Player installer BS Player.exe & BS Player.zip

Hello ...


I would like some "compting expert" to explain the difference between installing BS Player with .exe (as I know install, register software, writes changes to registry, etc.), and .zip version, which is usually just unpacked, copyed (without installation procedure) to random, or better - Active hard disk/partition - C for example) and it is ready to be executed ...

I mean, any practical difference !?!



Thanks, moocher

Zip files are generally a little bit smaller, and not as user friendly as the installer. They are for the more uh... "advanced" computer user, lol.

Default ah, so there is no "practical" difference ...

Ah, so if I understand you correctly, there is no "practical" difference ?!?

Installer is just for those, who are unfamiliar with zipping, unpacking, etc., but in the end, the result are identical (istalling with .zip, or .exe) ?!?


Thanks

Hi

Yes, you are right!!!

(If you get the installer-version, also a shortcut-icon will be generated automatically on your dektop after the installation has completed)
