You presently don't have/don't see this feature, because of your rank (R0).

@Special: Those registry keys under "HKEY_USERS/S-1-5-XXX..." store the user-specific configuration. There's one sub-key for each user in "HKEY_USERS". But you normally don't access those keys directly, because *your* key will always be mapped to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" and that's what applications use to store user-specific settings. So, if at all, you should be getting a "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Trolltech" a key. But, as said before, I do not have such key here. Maybe, what you have found, was just a leftover from some ancient version.

I suggest you use ProcessMonitor from Microsoft/Sysinternals to see what registry keys LameXP really writes...

deathcubek: it sounds like you mostly got the testing thing ironed out, but just in case, there's a forum thread that covers a few different testing processes: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7718

I can't extract the exe file with Universal Extractor. I get an error:
"Signature detected: Inno Setup Setup Data (5.2.4)
This is not directly supported, but i'll try to unpack it as version 5110
; Version detected: 5204
Critical error: The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program.
Unpacking failed. This version is not supported."

How can I extract it, then?

ishldgetoutmore on 2011-12-07 21:49

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

dany on 2011-12-08 00:06

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.
Worked for me.

PCI-Z v1.3

Checker on 19 Apr 2014

PCI-Z is designed for detecting unknown hardware on your Windows based PC. It will help you determine vendor, device and certain details about device even if you don't have drivers installed. Software uses The PCI ID Repository, a public repository of all known ID's used in PCI devices: ID's of vendors, devices, subsystems and device classes. It is used in various programs (e.g. The PCI Utilities) to display full human-readable names instead of cryptic numeric codes.

You can find drivers for your operating system without a problem! Find drivers for your WiFi cards, audio cards, network cards or any other PCI peripheral.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1

Checker on 15 Mar 2014

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from many types of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages such as Wise and Inno Setup etc. Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: There are restrictions on the included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE. These files can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software and will only disable extraction of a small number of file types. See website for more information.
