This program saves a *lot* of settings to the registry. Saves around 150 or so settings to HKCU\Software\EdrawSoft\Edraw,1\Settings and 16 to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes. Where's the JauntePE version?

Sweet. I can't find anything on the Edraw site about a license or redistribution or I'd suggest making a web page that hosts the program + launcher.

Really slick looking mindmap program, but couldn't get it to work portably. Universal Extractor couldn't crack this so did the install/uninstall trick:

Procedure:
* Install
* Move from Program Files
* Also tried moving settings file to local folder without any change.

Results:
* Writes settings to \Application Data\Edraw Mind Map\Config: settings.xml and RecentTemplates.xml
* Appears to write to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Edraw.Template\

Maybe this will help.

Ah ... I didn't dig deep enough into the XMind thread -- I'll split them. Can't believe I forgot about that program only to retest it later...

Edit: split from XMind and then merged.

Launcher works great -- thanks very much, Joby. I also got to test out this Mind Map program and I'm very pleased. The various templates and graphics options really fire the imagination. I've recommended XMind to quite a few people, but I know they'd all probably get on board with Edraw's a lot faster.

Topic update: Edraw MindMaster is currently at v7.3.1 (changelog at https://www.edrawsoft.com/whats-new/mindmaster.html).

The following page notwithstanding, I'm not even sure there's a free MindMap (or is it MindMaster?) version anymore... :thinking:



Note: not to be confused with the FLOSS Java-based FreeMind project (https://freemind.sourceforge.io/) -- which apparently suffered a few woes of its own...
