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 newly introduced installer writes to the registry when choosing "extract only" (key: HKCU\Software\HSTools)
Oh, it is my mistake.
I will fix it in the next version.

I decided to offer only the installer for the following reason.

Files that are unzipped by Explorer are given the Internet zone attribute in ADS.
This not only gives warnings in the EXE file, but also causes strange bugs that are displayed only in the table of contents in the CHM file.

I add /SILENT and /EXTRACT option to the installer.
You can confirm it with /h option.

What? Do you think average users will dig in all these command-line options?

How about 7-Zip SFX, for example?

Normal users will use Extract Button in GUI.

Installer command line options are provided for automatic installer script or etc.

Yes it is one way.
But I think Extract button is enough.
Why don't you use extract button?

To be precise, this key is created when you launch the installer. (It is not when pressing the extraction button)

That's not stealth and creates unnecessary key in the registry

Why should I? I don't use your program. Also that's not stealth and creates unnecessary key in the registry

The installer was try to read installed path information that is described in HKCU\Software\HSTools\FastCopy\

In order to load the Path key, it needs to open HSTools key in advance.
My mistake was "create HSTools key" instead of "open HSTools key" in the installer.

If I would like to add the stealth function to FastCopy and its installer, I would not have published FastCopy as open source software.

I also happen to think the answer to that last question is a negative -- but then an express mention of it will be added to the database entry extraction instructions. After all, that's what TPFC is for.

Many thanks fly off to shirouzu for his work and generosity towards the Internet at large. :mrgreen:
