The purist vote

I'm a purist. The primary reason is because application portability is not rocket science. Either an application will run without leaving any traces on the host system or it doesn't...period. I'm asked sometimes, "Why be so adamant?" My answer to that is because achieving portability is fairly easy....

Already in the database, under Web Browsers. I would have suggested searching first, but again the search engine wouldn't have found it...even searching for "Off By One" which is the exact text that occurs in the listing doesn't yield any results.

stumpii,

I found out by emailing the author of UltraEdit (Ian Mead) and simply asked him how to make the application run without any registry dependancies.

The majority of that information would be classified as...

Auto DLL downloader

Look for the "caldix" utility from the same author here--

It's a tiny executable that will auto-download all the different compression DLLs.
