1. Trillian is in TPFC @ http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=213

2. Your submissions (this and the previous one) are incomplete... Icon missing, screenshot missing, etc.

3. As for this specific submission (Trillian), you failed to mention that the installer comes with Ask toolbar and Opencandy junk.

Last I checked, that junk was optional. And is a screenshot and icon really needed? I'll have an icon and screen cap dumped just for you by sunday.

Baas is not trying to insult you. Its true those are optional but if you'd like your submission to get voted to the live site, those are important aspects. Additionally, if you want someone to actually download and use something once the entry goes live, more information is better.

As far as I know the only registry entries left are made if you pack an uninstaller, make a startup entry, or put an icon in the start menu. Or Forget to edit the ini file.

Just tested version 5.1.0.15 free. There are lots of registry entries, especially in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Clients\IM\Trillian] and [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\classes\Trillian.SkinZip], but also in other branches.
However, these are not essential for the software functionality.

The profile is saved in ".\users\trillian.name" folder.

P.S. I'm using JauntePE for this one.

Why a new Trillian Astra entry added to TPFC? There is an older entry @ http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=213

The new entry fails to mention that the installer requires admin rights and that it contains offers to install 3rd party junkware too. I could not test it properly (one need to register an account) but I found that in addition to the registry entries and image file mentioned, it also:

1. Stores plugins.ini in AppData\Roaming\Trillian\plugins
2. Saves user data in AppData\Roaming\Trillian\users\global

[Ignore]Trillian Astra should not be in the DB.[/Ignore]

Edit: Just noticed the comment about editing the .ini file. Scratch the AppData remark.

Sorry I tested the new one and just said no by default on the offer so I didnt think to mention.
I just commented on the actual system changes made after executing the extracted application files on a clean system it hadnt been previously ever run on or installed to.
I foolishly operate my from administrator account so I didnt know to mention.
I will say if you dont like the new DB entry tho as opposed to whatever frikkin old one you are refering to
Blame it on Guiness for telling every body to go look in the damn private section cuz I didnt even think to look there till he emplored every one to go vote on the private appps yah
Sheesh ya had an outdated app I tested and ended up liking for the moment dont be such a stickler

Edit: also I didnt get any of those storage folders using my settings yet,however I just downloaded an assload of plugins and extra skins from
http://developer.ceruleanstudios.com/in ... /Main_Page

So who knows...

Also seems klinda sketchy judging from user reviews,but apparently with the new 5.1 builds,if using A SINGLE USER Skype account client,you can use Skype from within Trillian and as a grand celebration are offering true blue all future version build remake WTFevr lifetime licenses for an average of 48 dollars for dedicated previous account holders and around 60 dollars for new accounts

The Change history says: "Added by Checker" :shock:
But I didn't ... it was added by rokth. The only thing I did was adding the icon.

Well, I added a warning about the installer and changed the "Suggested by" field.

Is it only me or it's a feature... ?

When using in trillian.ini settings Use User Directory=0 then after closing Trillian then all settings and user folder will be deleted and starting it next time will be as brand new install.

Some concerns with the current Trillian Astra.

  • If you go through the process, its necessary to X the final screen to not actually launch the program. If you're not paying close attention (I wasn't) you get a lot of garbage into AppData and the registry.
  • You need to uncheck more than the uninstall program during install.

I tried fixing the instructions with the following:

Quote:
1. Download the installer and deselect all boxes in the making an uninstaller and running at startup.
2. Install to a folder of your choice (excluding the "Program Files" directory)
3. Choose "No thanks" when prompted to install additional software and then uncheck "Install Trillian Toolbar"
4. At the Trillian is installed window click the "X" box in the top-right corner -- do not press the Launch button.
4. Open file trillian.ini in a text editor and replace the contents with the following

[General]
Use User Directory=0
5. Launch trillian.exe


... but now the trillian.ini file is showing up as something completely different than before, which makes me think its leaving something in my registry that wouldn't get deleted by my uninstall process (using Zsoft).

Note added to the main entry. I've asked Andrew to take the entry offline until this gets resolved.
