The program includes its own notepad program opened by typing "jot", but major applications such as MS Office and Online Shopping resources can be added using add-on packs available on the website.

SlickRun supports auto-completion, relative paths and drive letter macro for improved portability.

Hi Kanu,

You wrote : "The author says the program doesn't write in other places that in his own folder."

Sorry, but I never said that : HamMultiPlayer needs to decompress files to be able to work and it does that inside "%temp%\HAM\". This directory is used to store HMP_mplayer.exe + MediaInffo.dll and 4 ini files. If you use HamCpu, HamMultiPlayerCPU.exe will be decompressed too. If you use thumbnails display, thumbnails will be created inside the same path and deleted when you stop using it...
The only exception is when you select "SaveBeside" in prefs. In this case, prefs file is saved beside HamMultiPlayer (in same directory for reasons of portability).
Portable means "no installation", not "without file writing".

If nevertheless you see others files spread everywhere, please let me know and check that your version is the one coming from my web site.

Barnuble.

Sorry if I sounded hostile but the web says 'This is a "portable" software, this means that everything is already included inside the ".exe" (no installation, no registry keys, ...)'.
Those three dots means etc.; so, portable + etc means no writing beyond its own folder because that's what portable means: I can move the folder to other drive and keep the settings.

But the problem, as you pointed, was that at first I didn't tick the "Save beside" checkbox. So, my suggestion after this would be to rename that box to a more common wording. But anyway, the blame is all mine. Sorry again.

The program is very useful, by the way.

webfork on 2016-12-10 04:46

@Kanu: Different sites have different definitions for portable but here "Stealth" is the term used when a program doesn't modify files outside of it's application folder (including the registry). HamMultiPlayer is not stealth but is portable. Please post in forums if you'd like to discuss further.

... but it only mentions changes in the paid version for this release.

The freeware still provides English (American or British), French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian support only -- Hunspell compatibility is only available in the paid version.
