This bid if for creating an installation package for a web-based software product. We have developed the Project Management software called 1stManager and available as a web-based project management tool at 1stManager.com. This program is developed in ASP.NET (C#) using Visual.NET. The database uses MS-SQL 2000. We have been selling this product successfully for over 1 year with the "application service provider" model. Our customers pay monthly fees for their hosted accounts. Now we want to diversify our strategy by offering an installable product. We request bids for creating a distributable package. The Coder who wins this bid will have to: 1) Package this program so that it can be installed in a Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Server as shareware (expires after 1 month). 2) Create documentation and help menus. 3) Develop payment page to buy the license. 4) Develop security measures to ensure that the software is not unlocked without a license, and is not de-compiled. 5) Help submitting the software to sofware resellers such as [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] Coders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the product before bidding, by opening free accounts and "playing" with the product.
