Based on the popular WinHTTrack website copying program. It controls the registry settings, but exporting the saved settings to a registry file on shutdown. It then copies them back into the registry on startup of the program. Also if WinHTTrack is already installed it will backup the current settings and use the protable settings if that is what the user wishes. It will ask to the user what settings to choose.

WinHTTrack Website Copier is not portable- a program which writes to Windows registry cannot be portable.

WinHTTrack Website Copier creates a new Windows shell item- "New" - "WinHTTrack Project". More about Windows shell integration here & here- no one (including the developer) ever bothered to respond to these forum posts.

There are a number of entries in the database that allow for minor registry changes, so long as the core settings are carried locally.

If it's too many, maybe we should switch to the WinPenPack version? http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-S ... rack.shtml

FYI this app is no longer portable:
it writes settings to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinHTTrack Website Copier


What am I doing wrong?
