I'm using the latest version of PhraseExpress Portable on XP Pro, but it's putting two files (config.xml and pexdesktop.xml) into my Documents and Setting/Application Data/PhraseExpress folder.

Is there any way to change where these files are stored, so that the true portability of this application can be made?

Please read above "How to extract"
Start de programm with the -portable parameter
and all settings are stored in the application folder

Lintalist is a context sensitive text-expander with abbreviations, shortcuts, plugins, scripts and search. It allows you to store and (incrementally) search and edit texts in bundles and paste a selected text in your active program. The text can be interactive, for example you can automatically insert the current time and date, ask for (basic) user input or make a selection from a list etc and finally it can also run a script. You can use keyboard shortcuts or abbreviations to paste the text (or run the script) without opening the search window. You can also use formatted text (html, markdown and rtf) and images.

AutoText offers in a small tooltip window saved words, texts, phrases, snippets, etc. during typing in any other program and will insert the selected item directly to the cursor position. In case of unsuccessful search, Space, Return, PgUp, PgDn etc. closes the small window, so that fast and liquid typing is not disturbed. Three different search methods can be set.

In addition AutoText monitors the clipboard and saves the last X text entries of the clipboard, which can then be retrieved as well.
