    And how does "such as" fit the requirements? Your answer leaves that open, and thus is rather a comment ;) CMS in general is not primarily targeted at "download center for software", so that would be a bit broad – plus might be killing flies using atomics.

  • I currently use a CMS, but it's a big pain to create a page for EACH PROGRAM. I would like to have something that does it automatically. Meaning, I upload a program, add a title, add a description, and maybe add a serial key (corporate software). I do NOT want to create each page by hand. – Kaz Wolfe Aug 24 '14 at 19:11
