Shaken, not stirred

#1 Post by I am Baas » Mon Apr 11, 2011 11:44 pm

Shaken, not stirred is a freeware jukebox program for people who like to hear some songs played very often and others only occasionally.

Dependencies: Windows Media Player 10 and up, gdiplus.dll
Note: The program writes all files to its own folder (except generated playlists where you choose) only if it's in a subfolder your user profile folder. If you put it anywhere else (like the Program Files folder), configuration and temp files would be written to your user profile's AppData folder.
Not portable for my needs.

Old thread update:

The program saw several updates since it's first post but appears to have stopped development.

2017 is not that far past, we have seen longer buried zombies coming back to life... ;)

On a personal note, that is a curious concept of... what? Install-free non-portable application?

So if you extract it to your Desktop it will behave portably. But not if you move it to your portables folder on a different drive...

Hum! I believe this could probably be circumvented via environment variables but I can't be bothered with it.
