There was some application instability during large operations such as using RESET ALL and Restore Settings.
I have fixed these issues in current releases.

Since the release of version 1607, I have not been able to crash the GUI.
Current release is version 1617.

All Portable releases have a new feature!
An option to move the configuration settings to the Application folder.

The ini along with the saved configuration files can be relocated to the Application folder. Look on the Config TAB.
When clicking to use the Application folder, ini_loc.txt is created and subsequently used by the App for restore features.
As long as ini_loc.txt is located in the Application folder, that location will be used for the configuration files.
______________________________________________________

Suggested setup for Deployment.
On any computer, start the Application.
Make any changes your deployment will require, such as disabling subtitles or whatever.
On the Config TAB, set the location of saved files to the Application folder.
On the Misc TAB, choose Save ALL Settings
Close the Application.
In the Application folder, delete the settings??.ini file.
The next time the Application is started without this ini file, it will automatically setup everything as it was when you Saved ALL Settings.
DO NOT include this ini file with your deployment setup. Only include the one in the .\settings\ folder.
The Codecs folder is ready for deployment.

A new feature of interest to system admins is a notification of failed silent updates.
The feature is displayed in the upper left of the Help TAB

A successful update check will also reset the tracking.

Latest 64bit portable versions can be had from MajorGeeks,
ADVANCED
STANDARD

The codecs within these releases can be upgraded by simply overwriting the files with newly obtained files.
