PADGen easily creates Portable Application Descriptions (PAD) 3.x files for all your applications. Use PAD to get all of the important information to your vendors and webmasters as quickly and as concisely as possible. With this information long detailed submission forms may soon be a thing of the past! Submitting the PAD file will easily allow webmasters access to all your information.

Portable Application Description or PAD is a standard developed by the Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). It is designed to replace the old non-formal, plain text file_id.diz and other textual program descriptions with an XML-based and strictly specified format.

To install PADGen, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install padgen

To upgrade PADGen, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade padgen

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
