Any Video Converter

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Any Video Converter

#1 Post by pplknownothin » Mon Sep 01, 2008 7:54 pm

I found this software today and looked it up on prtablefreeware dateabase and it said that it writes to the registry. so i wrote a simple batch to run the program and remove the registry files and other temp folders.

Image

The .bat:

Code: Select all

@echo off
cd C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data
md "Any Video Converter"
cd %~dp0
cd App
copy profiles.xml "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Any Video Converter"
cd %~dp0
cd App
start /wait VideoConverter.exe
cd C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data
rmdir /s /q "Any Video Converter"
cd C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\My Documents
rmdir /s/q "Any Video Converter"
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Any Video Converter" /f
I compiled the .bat to an exe so it runs in ghost and wiats for the program to quite and delete's folder and registry keys left by the program.

I have uploaded the launcher here: http://www.mediafire.com/?a7aaaw7lp07
(to use this you have to install and copy all the files including profiles.xml to a folder called App then have the launcher outside of that folder)

or you can download the sfx and just run and extract to w/e location you want: http://www.mediafire.com/?gtqawlve1s3 (easier)

offical site: http://www.any-dvd-converter.com/produc ... ideo_free/

*note: make sure you go to edit>options and change your outgoing dir or else it will save to a folder in my documents which the program makes itself (which will get deleted when you close the program)*

requirements: xp/vista
writes to: registry but then deletes when finished

let me know if this works out for anyone who tries it... i've tried it on 2 pc's and they both worked (one xp one vista)

Well I have no need for this program but you have just helped me so much.
You also made me feel quite stupid for not knowing the start /Wait command.
I've been having to create 2 batch files for each app I've portabalized in this way this is going to make things so much neater.

There is also an idea here.
Should we have a section in the database for apps that can be made portable in a simple batch file?
It should be easy enough to add the code to the entry and I doubt there is anybody out there without a notepad on their system.

You might want to use the ping command to replace the wait command. If I remember right the Vista and XP command prompts do not support this command.

i'm not sure what you mean. Ping is a tool to test IP to see if it's working right. unless there's another ping command/parameter i don't know what your talking about. tested it in vista as well and it seemed to work fine. :D
thanks for trying it though

Old topic update: although no longer natively portable, Any Video Converter (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1050) is still freeware (beware of Avast installation offered by the installer) and in active development -- latest release is v6.0.4 (changelog at http://www.any-video-converter.com/prod ... hatnew.php).

@webfork: as the present is the official forum topic for AVC, please remove version info from OP. Thanks. :)
