It is the toolkit causing the issues

Ok confirmed. If you make changes in the program then shut it down the file does get changed. Then if I reboot the computer and reopen Notepad2 the changes are still in effect. However with the shared computer tool kit installed it messes up a bit by doing this. Open Portable Notepad2 make your chan...

Original Reg

The regkey I was speaking of was the one in the Notepad2 folder, I assume that was the original because it has never been modified. So I will watch on my next test and see if one is created in the portable notepad2 folder or if the one in the notepad2 folder gets updated. Will let you know how it go...

Re what system

So far I have only tested on a computer that has Windows XP Pro with Shared Computer Tool Kit installed. That tool kit protects Drive C from any writes. I was in the Tool Kit admin account.

Re: Portable Audacity and Portable Notepad2

[quote="justin"]nm35 and I have released Portable Audacity and Portable Notepad2. I mentioned them both because they are on your list of non-portable apps. Both are open-source and are available here: Portable Audacity: http://www.portasoft.org/e107/page.php?21 Portable Notepad2: http://www.portasof...

Yes

Yes it is still free but most companies do not consider it freeware because it is distributed by Adobe. Most companies purchase the Adobe Acrobat commercial product and then distribute the reader to the end users so they don't have to put Acrobat on all machines.[/quote]

Why Adobe

Remember I stated I would be using my flash drive as a tech tool. The company I work for requires and insists that we use Adobe Reader. They will not support any free ware. Therefore Adobe reader is in my tool kit for when I have to rebuild machines for them. When you have close to 100 machines ther...

Actually I have a good reason for the program.

As a tech you go to someones house and thier machine is so loaded with junk the windows add/remove just will not populate very quickly. Programs like this are faster and you can use it as a removal tool because who wants to wait minutes after every program you remove that requires a reboot. Most of ...

I sat up a test computer last night just to try Cryptainer. Well here is how it goes. The portable did write many files to the registry. This program would be good if you were only going to use it between your own machines but not when using it on others machines. However the program still has a nic...
