AIMP

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.

The current entry lists those registry entries, so I guess this is portable. Should I add a note to the entry?

Thanks for testing, Joby
It's been awhile and I could be wrong, but I think those are only created when using the Installer (portable method) and not when using the extraction method, i.e. if you delete are they re-created?
Extraction Method:
Extract files and create (if not exist) a file in AIMP\Data\AIMP.ini and add the following:

Code: Select all

[system]
UserMode=0
BlockAssociations=1

Yes, they are recreated! No matter if the files are manually extracted (uniextract does not work for me, but I manually recreated the portable version selecting and tweaking the files I needed) or the portable-installer method is used.
And there is no "Data" subfolder in Aimp3; did you mean "Profile"?

Now who's :oops:

I guess I should have downloaded and tested (latest beta) I could have sworn last I tested V.3, I was able to extract and edit the ini.

Apologize for the pre-mature post (which actually works in V.2).

I am using the beta for a while and it behaves portably but haven't tested it thoroughly.

I'm glad it is updated but I liked the v2's convert feature a lot and that is unfortunately removed in v3.

I don't think was a bad idea the remotion of the conversion features.
But the probable remotion of the audio library would be certainly a dangerous move.

AIMP3

#55 Post by lautrepay » Thu Feb 16, 2012 5:43 pm

Personally, I disagree with qualify aimp as Not Stealth, as reflected in its entry, because:

1) Running AIMP3 on an account without Admin rights (which I suppose is the most common scenario): Stealth.
2) Running AIMP3 on an account with Admin rights: Not stealth.
Creates the following keys:
XP 32

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AIMP.TDropTarget
		HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AIMP.TDropTarget\CLSID

3) Running AIMP3 on an Admin account with less privileges using the runas command: Stealth
For example, launching the program with a bat file with this content:

Code: Select all

runas /trustlevel:0x20000 AIMP3.exe
or

Code: Select all

runas /trustlevel:"Basic User" AIMP3.exe
All the functions of the program work well this way.

To find out the levels available in your system (assuming that you're using an administrator account), just open a prompt and type:

Code: Select all

c:\>runas /showlevels
So I think that, at least, it deserves a mention about the fact of its "stealthness" when is the case.

Agree :!:
We should keep this entry as brief as possible and avoid the necessity of editing it with every update.

The only thing I had to change is "Start AIMP2.exe" into "Launch AIMP3.exe" ... I missed that (too) :oops:

That "runas" command is new to me!

I only have two trust levels on my XP com - "Disallowed" and "Unrestricted."
Will give the "Disallowed" one a try to see what happens.

Update:
"Disallowed" doesn't allow the program to run, which is appropriate! ;)
"Unrestricted" is basically the same as running the app regularly as an admin. (Not stealth)
is it stealth? ;)

It should be in your Windows\System32 folder (runas.exe). Documentation at http://www.microsoft.com/resources/docu ... x?mfr=true
