Awfully convoluted CLI solutions ;-)

| c:\>artsage64 mypicture.jpg
| (Exit with..."Esc" key...;-)

Plain batch file:

| REM art.bat yourpic.jpg
| @echo off
| artsage64 %1

Prompting batch file :

| REM artp.bat (type input file name after prompt)
| @echo off
| set /p arg= pix ?
| artsage64 %arg%

See also artsage.txt doc included in the artsage64.zip package, where all intricate CLI options will be revealed...;-)

I have my doubts regarding how "portable" this program is. I know it's popular...but portable...not so sure. I decided to try running it in a sandbox (Sandboxie). It wouldn't even install in the sandbox. Makes me think this program is trying to install a driver and sandboxie is stopping it. If so, then it's not portable in my sense of the word.

webfork on 2011-01-23 18:21

Dave: Many programs that have access to system areas and require admin rights are difficult to effectively virtualize by Sandboxie or other programs.

I really wanted to try this but it kept crashing on Vista.. I guess I'm stuck with Clonezilla (not such a bad thing, actually)
