Oh

I just realized that there have already been multiple posts on this topic. I was wondering though, is it impossible to do .NET portable app, or is it just more time than its worth? Also, the Idea of a new GUI in C++ based on the Command Line version, could that work?

.NET = Not So Much

It's not a time thing, it's just a usability thing. John Haller made a post a while back on what PC's have .NET installer, and what versions. A lot of the versions aren't compatible either, so it's not really worth it currently. I really would love to have Paint.NET Portable, and I may do it sometime, but I don't think .NET apps will ever be released here until something more portable comes out... if it does.

That probably would

I've been using it, just using batch files to run converts to iPod, so if someone knows it, they probably could do a GUI, it could start with just the basic profiles included, if it gets released, or before then, you could just do updates to add more options in the meantime

.Net support

.NET support is a non-issue. Since Windows 7 now comes with .net support and many xp systems already have it installed and it came with the latest service pack of xp i think its safe to say you can proceed with portable apps requiring .net support.

Respectfully, I disagree

Blackbane, based on the research done by John, I disagree. See his research here:
http://johnhaller.com/jh/useful_stuff/dotnet_portable_apps/

Essentially it boils down to: Statistically, less than 25% of all windows computers currently have .Net included.

that may be true but how many

that may be true but how many people are using Windows 7? most people are still using XP if not Vista and a very few rare are using 2kpro and some others are using Linux+wine. These dont have .net installed by default. also in some cases i have heard of .net being disabled in an academic setting.

portable handbrake

to all those still looking for the portable version,
