I wasn't really expecting otherwise when I found VC++ 8.0 DLLs in the zip file, but it doesn't work on Win98SE. I like the idea though; a 4MB portable web browser would be nice. Opera Portable weighs in at 6MB and OffByOne (which is very limited in functionality) is only a few hundred KB, for compar...

Looks like a nice improvement here: it seems they increased the executable size by a bit (~200 KB) but removed the requirement for external DLLs to be used alongside the executable. Makes things simpler and saves space in the end (VC++ 8.0 DLLs aren't particularly small).

According to the quote above that lists the reason for rejection, the issue wasn't portability, but rather the clumsy method for customizing settings.

I have some questions though: what exactly is that "folder's data" Queue is talking about ? Are there any other settings ? Where can I find more info about this ? All I meant by ''folder data'' was ''file attributes'' in this case. File attributes are part of the file system and, as far as I know, ...

On a SSD, defragging won't matter. If nothing else, I recommend trying to use flash drives for portable programs and data storage as much as possible: that 8 GB SSD will really fill up fast, and good file management will help you get the most out of that machine. Make sure you set temporary internet...

Another option for implementing portability (instead of checking for registry entries) is to check if there is a settings INI file in the same folder as the EXE and run portably if there is. You can then just include an empty INI file in the ZIP download. It also lets a portable version run properl...

Because you may not need (because you already have) that particular C++ runtime. He's listing it in the readme just in case you don't. Like 99% of the software you have (portable or not) relies on Microsoft or Borland's runtimes, and it's quite likely that you already have most, if not all, of the m...

=D is a huge grinning smiley face. I just use = instead of : for eyes! :D

C++ runtimes are normal requirements for programs, portable or not, and are not a deal-breaker for portability.

A poll to ban him? That's an embarrassment. He actually made that poll himself. =D You're headed in the right direction though arifali, get the settings portable and I'd be happy to set up the Portable Freeware entry.

Re: About the batch.

About the batch does it have to be run every time or is just once enough? Just once; after a folder is flagged as a system folder, it will stay that way. And will this be portable to other computers without running the batch? Yes, the batch file (flagging the folder as a system folder) only needs t...

The folder needs to be flagged as a system folder. I think the following batch script could make that process easy for you: @echo off attrib +S %CD% cls Put that text into a batch file, put the batch file inside the folder you want to set a special icon for, then run it. Then, a desktop.ini file ins...

http://localhostr.com gets my vote. Quick and simple; never really looked into the limitations (size, etc.), but I love that you get direct links to files rather than having to go to a page first to download.

I went ahead and released version 1.4 today.

Could be a browser (or a browser setting) issue, that's not unheard of when dealing with CAPTCHAs.
