I've just tried the portable version. It lives up to its name -- it's really fast and easy to use, moreover, no entries are made in the registry unless associations are used.

Also, unlike 7-Zip, the option to select a working folder actually works! 7-Zip offers that option too, but ignores it (as mentioned in several 7-Zip forum posts), so in Windows 7, 7-Zip creates temporary folders under AppData\Local, and often doesn't delete them afterwards. I watched closely as I opened some archived files in Bandizip. The temporary folders appeared in my selected working folder, and as soon as I closed the files, the folders were automatically deleted, exactly as they should have been. So far I haven't run into any problems with this app.

The version shown in my copy is 2.01 build 7558.

As I said before, a very interesting app. Lightweight, fast and natively portable now. Thanks, Baas!
I just want to add that if you uniextract the normal installer and edit the config.ini changing the line
Code:
is_portable      =0

to
Code:
is_portable      =1

you'll get a more powerful portable package and with the 32-bit/64-bit combo.

Aditionally, you can use another language file among the availables modifying this line:
Code:
second_lang_file   = english

Note: I'm not able right now to test this method for stealhtness.

So I installed it and copied the folder Bandizip from %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data (on Windows XP) to a USB drive and then unistalled it. From there I changed the config.ini data and it was Portable. Why is the Portable version so restricted?

Ups, sorry, guinness: extract with 7zip not with Uniextract.

No problem, one reason why UniExtract should be updated :mrgreen:

Do you think the publisher want the users to run the installer for whatever reason?

No idea, from reading the forum the impression I get is they don't see Portable software as being a popular thing.

I think it's more an issue of resources than anything else. Bandicam is their primary product.

Updated to v.2.03.
Quote:
Support delta, deflate algorithm of 7z format
Support RTL (Right to Left Text) language
Improved extracting speed when unpacking small files
Improved SFX (Self-extracting archive) file processing
Fixed many bugs


I hate to discard an open source and well established program in favour of a closed source one, but it is what I did with 7-Zip and Bandizip.
I've found the latter a lot much faster than 7-Zip, mainly when extracting, and overall I am very pleased with it, and with the fact that is natively portable.
At any time, if no one does before, I will add it. If it continues on this path, will certainly be a permanent Popular title.

Have you seen this?

The answer to the question "which compression program is best" depends on what you care about (see the section below). However, if I must give a recommendation I will say that my personal choice would be HaoZip, 7Zip, (tied for first place), and then Peazip. Here’s a comparison table for the three: [...]

Please note that even though Bandizip writes its settings to its own app folder, version 2.01 build 7558 managed to add a whole bunch of compression formats to my registry automatically on first run, without actually associating them, even though I had not used Bandizip's associations option at all. Some of the formats were unfamiliar to me. Their extensions appeared right at the top of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes, and they also appeared under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. A few already existed as Windows file types (.ISO, .CAB, etc.), but most of them were new, and had no data in the subkeys.
