WinSplit2

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

First of all, and to be honest, I was unaware about another thread on this subject, so my apologies for omitting that WinSizer2 was already mentioned by you.
Secondly, my settings are actually saved in %AppData%\Roaming\MagraSoft. Any suggestions to make it natively portable?

Glad you asked :) ... copy/move the files in %AppData%\Roaming\MagraSoft to the application folder. Open WinSize2_Root.INI and change the path to "INIFile_Path=."

It seemed strange that an AutoHotKey app was not natively portable...
Thanks! You've made my day! :D
I'm very close to having my whole portable freeware collection.
Is it possible to split this thread and move it to the Submission forum?

Can someone speak to this? I came back to this program and there is no WinSize2_Root.ini file in the download. Do you create that file? Or move it over from AppData after first launch?

WinSize2_Root.INI is created on first run (WinSize2_2.38.04).
Portability instructions do not mention this and assume it is already present.
Further the path setting will not work unless other text is present
WinSize2_Root.INI wrote:[Settings]
INIWithScreenSize=0
INIFile_Path=.\Data
Process_ID=876
LogFile_Size_kB=100
It actually contained direct path
WinSize2_Root.INI wrote:E:\PortableApps\WinSize2
and ignored my one line of text
INIFile_Path=.\Data
but by adding the INI file the file was not created at %AppData%\Roaming\MagraSoft.

So for complete instructions I believe the entry should state:
Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
In this folder, create a new folder named Data
Create the file WinSize2_Root.INI in a text editor add following text:

Code: Select all

[Settings]
INIWithScreenSize=0
INIFile_Path=.\Data
Process_ID=876
LogFile_Size_kB=100
Rename WinSize2_Update.exe to WinSize2.exe and launch
