You open the program, specify your connection method and then enter your pad file url for example //www.willemssoft.be/pad/padsubmit.xml. Once you have done this all you have to do is press the submit button and the program will start the submitting proces.
After the program has finished submitting you can view the results by selecting a site and pressing the "view selected result" button. (or you check out the html files in the "results" folder)
The program will detect if a submission was succesfull, meaning that the ubmitted program from the pad file is either updated or listed as a new program, or if it has failed, that there wasn't a catergory found in the pad file that matches the ones on the pad site, there was a connection problem, or the submission timed out.
There's also an option to start from a certain site number in case you want to resume from a certain point. Timeout is used to specify how many seconds the application waits before it submits another program, this is only used to speed up the submission of pad urls that no longer work.
Threads is used to specify how many pad files you want to submit in one time. Please note that depending on the website's download speed and internet connection you might have to increase the timeout value.
A Pad file is basically an xml file that describes your program and using the pad file you can then submit this information to multiple freeware shareware software sites. It's used so that you only have to enter your program details once and for ease of updating your programs information on websites.
