Dummy file creator

Hello everybody.
As the name says, this program creates dummy files (empty files with same name and extension of existing files).

I developed this program on my own, as a way to learn C#, and I found out that it works so well that would be a waste to keep it only for me
So i managed to put in an English translation and here it is.

I always use this program in my conversions as i prefer not to replace original installers (where possible), so i make them run with the dummy files and then decompress original files overwriting the dummies.

A little technical infos about the program:
- only one file, directly executable (no install);
- very fast, usually the creation is finished before the progress bar filling animation reaches the end;
- only Italian and English languages available, sorry;
- this program is developed and tested under Windows 7 x64 (although it's a 32bit executable) so I don't know how it'll behave under different systems;
- as it was developed using Visual Studio 2010, it needs .NET framework v4 to be installed.

I am not a professional programmer (I'm a building surveyor ) so I cannot guarantee that the program will work flawlessly for everyone, so please be careful...

Thank you for your attention and I hope this program could be useful.
