It may be that gaP does some sort of self-checking... or it has hard-coded resource locations. YMMV. :roll:

I've asked him but he never answers,,,
I'tryed with many tools, but ALWAYS with the same results. NOT WORKING.
Maybe he refers at an old version of GAP?

I'm trying to portabilize a service...

I have to copy some drivers in system folder, and then, start an .exe

The problem is this progran not plan to close! It stay open until computer shut down.
(And, if windows close, I can't copy back the files I copied to the system folder...).

How can I resolve it???

Thanks.

yaP has the "nowait" keyword for that (see http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/#keyword_nowait). It might work with gaP but IDK. YMMV...

Hello,

I found on this site, the Great! another Portabilizer (gaP) which is very simple to implement and which perfectly meets my needs. This software is an improved version of the Yet another Portabilizer (yaP) in particular with the "Service" parameter.

It works well except for user variables (Uservar).

Does anyone have a version that works perfectly with user variables?

Thanks

Apparently, back in 2015 user Eolis had go at creating a yaP fork[?]/alternative -- development seems to have stalled since. Check the OP.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.

Regarding yaP, is it still in development?

If yes, has the "Service" functionality been considered?

Thanks

I'll check it out at some point. This service feature looks interesting, i came across a program recently that i couldn't make it portable because it created a service

Thanks to Midas and Rudy5 for their answers.

Indeed yaP has a very active community, so I'm going to test portability with yaP.
