Re: Compatibility of portable softwae with Windows 7?

I want to rectify my last post on this item: To run a program like Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel in Windows 7, it is enough to activate the compatibility with Windows XP mode for running the program. Just point and right click to the executable and choose <properties/compatibility> with the appropiat...

Re: Compatibility of portable softwae with Windows 7?

I have tested Windows 7 for about a month and I have to say that I can run all my portable apps. without any problem with the only exception of those that use drivers which seem to be WinXP-specific. Example: Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel ( http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4402.html ) does not run i...

Re: Should I download Ubuntu GNU/Linux? NO!!!

One last(?) comment: Two years ago, I was in favour to small modular Linux distros. See the topic (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1258). The things have changed in two ways: -The availability of bigger and cheaper USB drives (typically now over 8 Gb) broke my first constraint...

Re: Should I download Ubuntu GNU/Linux? NO!!!

Hi, Simon. I am still here :lol: Basically I understand you when I read your comments and in some extent I share them. But I have to add that Ubuntu is the easiest way I have found to have more or less all the functionality that I enjoy when running Windows, including most of my portable apps. The f...

Re: Should I download Ubuntu GNU/Linux? NO!!!

Yes, Dwel, Sabayon was very good when I tested it. But my main reason to choose Ubuntu, a Debian-based GNU-Linux instead, was that by using 'Remastersys Backup' (http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/remastersystool.html), an utility designed for Debian and Ubuntu, which I install in the system ...

Re: Should I download Ubuntu GNU/Linux? NO!!!

OK, I see. It seems that you do not like Ubuntu... Well, I have to say that in the past I had tested, for the joy to know what happens and how work different GNU Linux OSs, more than a hundred distros, and in some cases more than 3 versions of them, collecting about 400 different installation or liv...

You posted it before, so ... ?! ... It is nice though... You are rigth in both sentences. My present thread is to draw your attention on this software (may we name it as 'program'?), because in the previous threads we did not enter to discuss the matter itself.

I am using this versatile (*) software since long time ago, it is portable, it is freeware, but it is not still in our collection... :roll: From the TiddlyWiki.org site ( http://www.tiddlywiki.org/ ): "TiddlyWiki is a single-file, self...

Both methods: The one described by Kea and the one by Hank7 are good to add and delete contents to an ISO, except when you have to edit booting properties of booting ISOs. In that case you need pograms that can edit the booting devices or booting sectors of the ISO. To rebuild the ISO after changing...
