PuTTY may be useful, but it needs an SSH server to really test its
main features, which means I need an ssh server that can have an
exposed password/access.

Otherwise, yes, perfect program for this. Still useful for testing
that it can run, text appears correctly, etc.

Installers are actually easier than .zip files. But they're more
complex than standalone applications. I'll start on installers in a

tests are going and being done daily, without waiting on further
