Netdiver: Help - Can't make this run portable

The app writes entries to the registry - cannot locate any config options to write to the app folder. Also, could not find info on the website.

If there is a way, please post.

If you run Freeraser.exe from removable media it writes (and reads) all settings to INI file in same folder.
Works just fine for me....
Check if your portable device recognized as "removable" by Windaz. If it is "fixed" app will use registry for settings :(

Update: there is native Portable version. May be downloaded here: ... _Setup.exe
or ZIP archive: ...
Links in post fixed as well...
