Have another look at Password Gorilla v1.5.x

#3 Post by BigD » Wed Jan 18, 2012 7:42 am

I've realized that Password Gorilla v1.5.x is much more useful - open-source, secure, cross-platform, and can be made portable - than I'd thought. I'd overlooked the program since v1.4.x was the last obviously portable version. I've added some comments to its database entry at http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.p ... 3#comments.

This may be the case, but how did you get the settings to save portably? I looked at this recently and couldn't find anything and PA seems satisfied with KeePass: http://portableapps.com/node/13709

Please look at the script in my comment timed '2012-01-18 15:27' at the link above.
As for KeePass, it's for Windows only, and PortableApps don't really seem to care much about cross-platform stuff. However, portable versions of KeePassX exist for both Linux and Windows (but they only support older versions of the KeePass database format).

Of course. Somehow I missed that, sorry.

They have been quite good about WINE compatibility notices.

I tested a KeePass version for Android and ran into that problem.

Tried to make a go of the batch file, but I tried to run it from my desktop and it gave me an error "windows cannot find 'c:\Documents'. Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again." Anyone know a way around this?

Oh and I verified the program is still saving settings to the user folder. Still, the program is extremely spartan, so the presence or absence of these settings doesn't seem important/necessary. This is therefore an edge case in terms of the portability standard.

1) Are you using the latest Windows executable gorilla1536[_64].exe downloaded from https://github.com/zdia/gorilla/downloads ?

2) The folder where gorilla.exe is stored shouldn't have spaces in its pathname.

Nah, as I have a 32-bit WinXP SP3 box, I'm using gorilla1536.exe, which I renamed to gorilla.exe

Ah -- I kinda need that. Thanks anyhow.

In my batch file, use the following command instead to allow for the path containing spaces:
start "" "%~dp0gorilla.exe"
That should fix it for you.

Cool, will try that.

Actually as we're increasingly entering into a tweak to another tweak, it might get confusing for visitors. I recommend just posting your stuff here.

Just found out that Gorilla has a commandline option:
--rc configfile : Use as configuration file (not the Registry)
so no need for a wrapper batch file after all, and this makes Gorilla truly portable.

True, it creates a configfile in the application folder but it will not "read" it unless run with the "--rc configfile" parameter every time.

Unless I'm missing something, this is the expected behavior when using parameters.
Not a big deal, just create a link with the parameter or a batch file to launch the app.

The --norc parameter is also available if you don't want to save settings.
