Well, I started working on updates when you I wrote that first post and I just got done. Six of the apps on my site are updated with a new version which (hopefully) works the way you suggested. If you find bugs, please report them.

I actually just fixed that problem yesterday and a new version is on my site. You're right though, I should add support for using a local file instead. As for the bug where the download looks like it completes, I'm not really sure how to deal with that. All my script does is requests to download the...

Sorry for digging up such an old post, but I thought it should be updated for accuracy. You can download a portable/stealth version of Radmin Viewer from my site. It has full persistent phonebook support for Radmin Viewer 3.3, and because the portable version uses a wrapper script, both your host-PC...

Resource Hog Monitor?

Hey, I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a program I'm looking for. I'd like to figure out which of my processes are using the most CPU/Memory/Disk accesses/Network ... etc. This way I could eliminate those programs which were taking up my resources but I don't really need. Ideally, I'd lik...

If you don't run thinapp from a brand new computer image, you're almost guaranteed to create programs which will fail on other machines. It's important to not have any dependencies pre-installed, that way thinapp will capture the dependencies as well as the main app. Also, capturing the system snaps...

I suppose one could launch a file manager from Thinloader if they really wanted to :P

Gotta love being on a shared server. All it takes is one person who doesn't keep up security or lets a password slip and boom... everyone on our server gets nuked. But no worries! I think the guy was just looking for recognition. All his attack did was replace every index file with his own. He also ...

is there any advantage to using this over making your own thinstalled apps? I think the point is, not everyone wants to create a clean machine (virtual or not) to run Thinapp on, so for a lot of people Thinapp is a hassle. Thinloader is also considerably easier to use. I also don't really like down...

You were right, it wasn't quite as simple as I thought it might be, but I've managed to complete a working version of Ziepod, which uses the My Documents folder. Take a look, here's the new functions that I've created to handle everything. Func GetAllUsers() $AUN = EnvGet('AllUsersProfile') $AUNPos ...

Easy to test = throw the installer/program into sandboxie and see where it puts its files, if it puts some in my documents, then see if the program creates its needed directories when portabilized with my script, if not, then develop some system to automaticly create them.

Seems easy enough to me.

Well, of course it depends on the program. Since when was there ever a single script that worked in every single condition?

I think this should be extremely useful in portablization regardless, and figuring out if it doesn't work because those directories arn't there is easy to test for.

Well, It's not reliable of course, but most programs just create the folders they need, so by changing the basic env vars, the programs will create their own subdirectories. I'll have to do app-specific testing, but it shouldn't be too hard. Running that simple script has yielded surprisingly passab...

Hmm, that's strange.... reassigning the environmental variables has worked in every program I've tried so far, except other AutoIt programs.

Is there a way to do a similar redeclaration of... whatever you were talking about?
