- Integrates Format Factory Portable into shell (Send To option).



Guide
______________________________________________________________________

- Extract 'FFP_Launcher.zip' to location of your choice (USB,...).
- If you have already installed Format Factory, copy all folders and files from the installed location into Format Factory Portable -> FormatFactory folder in your portable package.

Note: This method requires admin rights.

Use 'FormatFactory(P).exe' in Format Factory Portable folder to start Format Factory Portable.



How to Update Format Factory Portable Package
______________________________________________________________________

Download the installer into Format Factory Portable -> Update folder. Run the launcher and follow wizard instructions.
Note: Installing update requires admin rights.


Format Factory Portable Settings
______________________________________________________________________

'Settings' file (Profile folder in your portable package) holds Format Factory Portable's settings. Launcher backups Settings file automatically.
To restore Format Factory Portable settings from backup, delete 'Settings' file.
To create new Format Factory Portable settings backup file, delete 'Settings.bak' file.

Thank you very much for this!
Format Factory is my preferred tool for the video converting job, mainly because it offers deinterlacing and adding video logo options. Only one thing I'm sad about: it doesn't support DXVA, so it's much slower on my system than Freemake Video Converter (which adds a watermark at the end of every longer than 5 minutes video, by the way, starting with version 4.0.4 IIRC).

You are very welcome and thank you for sharing your thoughts. :D

Thank you for the launcher but i have a question - how we can run
format factory portable in a pc where where don't have administrative
access to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005, so how we can run it
without need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005.

For example audacity official version don't run without installing
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 but the portable version can run without
installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008.

FF doesn’t require Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 to run (XP 32-bit, 8.1 64-bit).

Seems to be a mediafire problem

using Internet Explorer kept asking to "fix" download
Using FireFox portable it "worked" with a hiccup on second request
file downloaded 227kb as advertised and opens as zip
