  • Updated to GNU Emacs 23.2
  • Added EmacsPortable/Other/ApplicationStructure.txt file.
  • Removed all extensions(wget, ctags), this is now plain Emacs, just portable.
  • Removed the directory "load", use the directory ".emacs.d" instead for your added modes.
  • Updated EmacsPortable/Other/Source/Readme.txt file.
  • Updated EmacsPortable/Other/Source/EmacsPortable.ini file.
  • Updated EmacsPortable/help.html file.
  • Used PortableApps.com AppCompactorU on Emacs.

23.1 Development Test 4 (2010-04-05):

  • The directory "user-load-path" has been simply renamed as "load", to shorten the total character length in path names.
  • The directory "load" is moved to .emacs.d directory.
  • .emacs.d has been defined in the load path. The .el files in this directory can directly be "required" from _emacs.

Server file not safe?

PortableEmacs on Windows 7: when I invoke emacs from the launcher menu, it comes up with its window split in two and a message in the bottom half that an error occurred while loading my init file .../Data/settings/_emacs:

error: The directory `~/.emacs.d/server' is unsafe

The directory is present. The Windows Properties pane shows it as read-only (also for contained files), but I don't seem to be able to change that through the Properties pane.

Any suggestions?

Server file not safe: fixed

This problem isn't limited to Portable Emacs, but happens with emacs generally under Windows 7.

The simplest solution -- the one that doesn't require modifying any elisp -- is to change ~/.emacs.d/server to be owned by the login identity, not Administrators (or any other identity except the login identity). Do this through Properties -> Advanced and so on.
