    As originator of a convergent suggestion, I obviously second joby_toss. :)

I support 2 different entries, since they are obviously 2 different beasts (for the record, I'm still using KeePass 1.x to store some of my passwords).

How about adopting the wishes of the KeePass developers and calling them "KeePass Classic 1.x" and "KeePass Professional 2.x"?

We can list the latter as a separate entry and if enough people vote for it to become public, so be it, dotnet or not, as long as it is portable.

    That's a solution I have no trouble supporting... :)

KeePass audit: no critical security vulnerabilities found

I'm very happy with the increasing commonality of security audits like this one. I do still wonder what credentials make one qualified to perform one, but it's still a good direction.

There's an easy way to make KeePass 2.35 (id=2829) write the PluginCache in the application folder and not AppData\Local\.

Not a native english speaking guy, so edit it if i made any mistakes.


How to extract:
1. Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice.
2. Launch KeePass.exe and close it again.
3. Delete AppData\Local\KeePass.
4. Open KeePass.config.xml in Notepad and look for the first <Application> and insert the following line under it

<PluginCachePath>{APPDIR}\PluginCache</PluginCachePath>

5. Launch KeePass.exe


// Edited a mistake.

Vox did something on password managers that could be on the Keepass front page.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks to starshakur for his appreciated help but ...

didn't work for me.

<PluginCachePath>{APPDIR}\PluginCache</PluginCachePath> needs to be above </Application> (or, rather, within the <Application>/</Application> block).

I tried starshakur's idea three separate times about making a plugin not write to the Appdata\Local folder, but I watched the Appdata\Local write the KeePass folder every time I loaded Keepass. I don't know how you modified your OS to accept the method, starshakur, but it doesn't work for me. I must stay with the native encryption methods of Keepass, ChaCha20 and Rijndael.

It should work with all Windows Versions...

Could you copy the <Application> </Application> Block from KeePass.config.xml in here?


EDIT: Did you follow my initial instructions or the edited one? The initial one had a little mistake in it...

@Mixture

starshakur's instructions are basically correct.

KeePass Help Center (http://keepass.info/help/v2/plugins.html) wrote:
PLGX plugins are compiled and stored in a plugin cache directory on the user's system. This cache highly improves the startup performance of KeePass. Old files are normally deleted from the cache automatically (this can be disabled in the plugins dialog).
By default, the plugin cache is located in the user's application data directory. However, this can be overridden using the Application/PluginCachePath setting in the configuration file (this setting supports placeholders and environment variables). So, if you're for example using KeePass on a portable device and don't want the cache to be on the system, you could set the path to {APPDIR}\PluginCache.
Warning Do not relocate the plugin cache into the 'Plugins' folder of the KeePass application directory, because this can result in a severe performance degradation.

See the Plugins help page, section "Plugin Cache".
The full line would be <PluginCachePath>{APPDIR}\PluginCache</PluginCachePath>

Putting <PluginCachePath>{APPDIR}\PluginCache</PluginCachePath> within the <Application></Application> block of KeePass.config.xml worked for me.
