The portable version is not really portable

Postby Axis » Fri Apr 18, 2014 1:44 pm

Hi.

It would be possible build a really portable version (It means that It doesn't use the registry and all settings/infoes are stored in an INI or XML file in the same folder as the app)?

Now RegOrganizer's "portable" version writes to registry and to %appdata% :

The two above items are usually used by Reg Organizer during its work. The registry keys you specified below does not concern to Reg Organizer.

At the same, the above two items should be removed after closing the portable version. The only way thay can stay is if they were in the system before launching the portable version.

If you remove the above two items and run the portable version again, will they be left again after it finished?

I'm sure, I tried again (I tried three times, Windows 7 64bit, RegOrganizer 6.35 trial portable):

1- 1st system's snapshot
2- launch RegOrganizerPortable.exe
3- Make some changes in "Commands" --> "Settings..."
4- "File" --> "Exit"
5- 2nd system's snapshot

1st system's snapshot and 2nd system's snapshot comparison, result:

The bug is confirmed. The empty ChemTable Software folder and registry key may left after using the portable version. Thank you for the information.

The other entries you listed concerns to the third-party software, for example, Dell Support Center.

The system registry is getting changed periodically by the installed programs.
The Reg Organizer's portable version loader only modifies the own keys and folders which are hard-coded in the configuration file.
