Sorry, don't use MusicBee anymore.
Perhaps you can test it and let us know if it's portable/stealth

hi
i can run on a clean system ,maybe under sandboxie but i don't know if it's stealth
just because can't distinguish between the keys generated by the program and the keys generated by the operation system
thanks

I've added MusicBee to the database. Please vote: https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2991

---

EDIT:

I put this off adding this for a few reasons, most of them just a strong affinity for Foobar, but there's SO much functionality and mod-ability packed into this program now, it's definitely belongs in the DB. While the radio toolset isn't as good as some other programs here on the site, the interface is great, the tabs system makes a lot of sense, and the Podcast manager is one of the best I've used.

Wishlist
  • Ability to easily disable animation, which I find distracting i.e. by clicking on it
  • Ability to right-click any kind of visualization and modify it or jump to the settings necessary to modify it
  • Double-clicking a radio station should start playing (that's not the only concern, many of the entries I found weren't available in the US)
Other notes
  • I seemed to have some difficulty around adding items from a removable disk.
  • Options for removable disk seemed to center around syncronization, not viewing content

Update here: MusicBee for some reason includes a command-line device eject program called RemoveDrive that looks really great just by itself.

Main: https://www.uwe-sieber.de/drivetools_e.html
Softpedia mirror: https://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Sy ... rive.shtml

I'm not sure how MusicBee uses this program, but it's nice to have

Yes, Uwe Sieber's (no DotNET, mostly CLI!) tools are generally excellent -- they have been in development for years (oldest mention I found here is from 2006!) and one can't recommend them enough. :arrow:

A couple of other examples from around TPFC:

- DriveCleanup (viewtopic.php?t=5547)
- USB Device Tree Viewer (viewtopic.php?t=20956)

Are you sure it's 4.5? I put 4.0 in the entry.

yes you can read in the changelog and test on a clean w7 install without 4.5

Sorry this took a few days to reply to -- but what's 32-bit only? MusicBee seemed to work when I tested on a Win10-64 system. Do you mean 32-bit dotNET?
