Apeel PHP Code Generator Pro runs on Windows 7 / Vista / XP / 2000. It requires 512Mb RAM, up to 100mb Disk Space.
To test the Web Applications you generate you will require a working Web Server (e.g. Apache or IIS), PHP and MySQL. If you don't already have these installed we recommend that you download and install XAMPP which is free and automates the process
Try out APEEL PHP/MySQL Code Generator for free with this Fully Functional 30 Day Trial. Download and run this which will prompt you to select where you would like to install the application, and to select which components you want to install.
Once the download is complete you should have a file in your downloads folder called apcgp.zip.
Double-click on it and you should see two files setup.exe and apcgp.xml
Double-Click on setup.exe. You should now see the User Account Control (UAC) confirmation dialog (unless running Windows XP or UAC is turned off).
In the dialog "Verified publisher:" should always say "City Business Logic Limited". If it doesn't the security seal of the file has been tampered with, and it SHOULD NOT be installed, instead please contact us for further advice.
