Zip Archive Manager with a portable user interface.

I tested v2.00. Still saves settings to the same location. It's just window size and recent file listing so that might be portable enough for some users but it doesn't meet site standards.

Until version 2.15 AZip
was not portable, configuration was saved to Windows registry:
I contacted the developer, Gautier de Montmollin
, suggesting portable mode
and today, 2018-08-22
, three days after my initial request, the developer released a new version of AZip
, which can easily be made portable:
AZip doesn't require any installation. It can even run from a USB stick for instance. For convenience, by default, it writes user settings in the registry, as standard Windows software does. If you want the registry NOT being written to, you can add a file, azip.cfg (can be empty), in the same directory as azip*.exe. User settings will be recorded there. If the file is read-only, it simply won't be changed, and settings won't be saved.
To run AZip
in portable mode before starting the program just create an empty configuration file (azip.cfg
) in the directory where the executable file (AZip 2.20.exe
for the latest version) resides. All settings will be saved in this configuration file and Windows registry will not be touched. The directory should not be write-protected.
- Download the executable;
- Create empty azip.cfg file next to the executable;
- Run the executable;
- program window
- menu bar
- handling archive
- creating archive
- archive properties
- quick help
I would like to thank the developer- Gautier de Montmollin
, for taking my request about portable mode so seriously and for implementing it so fast!
