Apparently not. Winyl is not portable. It writes settings to Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Winyl

See What Software do you use for Submissions? and What tools do you use to test Portability? for quick reference but I am sure there are a couple more threads about this topic on this forums.

Excuses. Did not see the -p command argument. Winyl is portable. Settings saved to the application folder.

Yeh I'm a little confused and concerned too. Was it because the submitters name was changed in the post? I think it was because it had been mentioned before - http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... 898#p21898

Winyl v3.0 is nearing release -- the first release candidate (RC1) is available at http://vinylsoft.com/forum/index.php?topic=8482...

Be sure to peruse the topic above before upgrading any previous Winyl version, as there are significant changes that could bork existing settings!
Portable and standard version differences:
- Winyl portable uses relative paths when files added from the same drive where Winyl is located.
- Portable Version does not need administrative rights for installing, just unzip the arhive.
- Library and settings files is located in the same folder where Winyl (Profile subfolder).
- File associations is not available in the portable version.
