I'm using the latest version of PhraseExpress Portable on XP Pro, but it's putting two files (config.xml and pexdesktop.xml) into my Documents and Setting/Application Data/PhraseExpress folder.

Is there any way to change where these files are stored, so that the true portability of this application can be made?

PhraseExpress normally auto-adapts to the language set in the regional settings of Microsoft Windows.

Here is a step-by-step procedure how to set PhraseExpress to English language:

This also disables the automatic language detection. Hope, this helps.

Morning folk, must say I agree with RedTed, I have just downloaded and unzipped the app. I am now the proud owner of a German app. Have tried to change the language, but it's a no go. I am running a 64bit Dell Inspiron, could be that it's only meant for 32bit systems???

Thanks for the input, bartelsmediagmbh. On behalf of other TPFC users that appreciate your software, I thank you also for the generosity of providing Phrase Express as a freeware.
