Re: Dexpot V1.5

Today I decided to investigate and the problem was not having the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime files installed, which I thought I had but clearly no other application I uses requires them. So the fact I had to install additional files can this be classed as 100% Portable? Considering it's probably a de...

Re: Evernote Portable (custom launcher)

About closing splash screen. You can not turn it off. The closing splash screen pops up when the launcher has finished managing current session (cleaning, restoring,...). You could take it as a "check point": you can easily see when the launcher is done and it's kind of cool (well, at least I think...

Re: Virtualized Applications With Enigma Virtual Box

Was curious about this one, but while perusing their forum I rapidly came across this: http://forum.enigmaprotector.com/viewto ... =20&t=1771

Re: Anybody want to test a new portable app?

Tested in XP Pro SP3: seems to work as expected. Maybe it could benefit from some usability enhancement -- e.g., flash window border while setting/unsetting, etc. Overall, simple and effective. Great job. 8)

P.S.: Shouldn't this topic be moved to the development sub-forum?
