Adobe® Photoshop® CS2 Portable App (the name of the app has nothing to do with Adobe® Photoshop® CS2)

I have been working on scripts to automate the creation and set up of a Adobe® Photoshop® CS2

The Name Of the app is "Make_Portable" and its not really an app its a bunch of cmd files.
I have made what many people want (a portable Adobe® Photoshop® CS2 make and launcher)if you want to download it I have the link here but You still need either the Administrator password or you need to be an admin to run it. This I will fix as soon as we develop a working virtual registry and call re-director.

Download: It dosent work Im fixing it

Nice work,

I don't have CS2 but looks good. I had done a portable ps 7.0 and it work good, however, make sure you do not release this as anything that remotely sounds like Photoshop, including abreviations of the name, such as PS.... I had mine called Portable PS 7.0, BUT trademark issues with Adobe put a stop to the process. The reason being that Adobe has a policy that anytime in press, in the titles, on the internet, wherever, photoshop or any of it programs, are mentioned it must be mentioned thusly: Adobe Photoshop CS2 and the TM sign. also it cannot be used in any program name without the strict permission of the Adobe corporation. Basically a suable offense if they wanted to. Also the License of adobe states that the program is to be installed on one PC locally, there is no license for a remote version, so if someone at adobe finds out and wants to push it, that can state you are breeking license agreements, and you could get in trouble. I know, probably won't happen to such a small site as this, but in this world. you never know.

You can read the trademark info here: Adobe Trademark Policy

and the license agreement comes with the prog.

I am not trying to disuade you from this work, just letting you in on information that is very much, in this day and age, important.

Example: Just to give you an idea of where I am coming from, after I made Portable PS 7, I released only the launcher code, and strictly stated that a copy of Photoshop 7 must be owned nby the user, following a policy what I thought would work, because I was not distributing the software. But someone out in the interweb, downloaded the launcher, added the full photoshop 7 program to it, removed all warnings of the ownership and copyrights, and then uploaded it to a torrent site. They also left my name in the source code that was with the launcher. Basically making it look like I created it and distributed it. After that was downloaded many times, someone used the same code to build CS and CS2, and left my name in again. In the end, and actually still going, there are all versions of Photoshop out in the torrent world that have my name attached to full distrbutions of the launcher and program, with no warnings of copyrights, just a readme saying "Enjoy!" or something like that. If it gets to big, Adobe could sue me badly. I am not in a good position to defend myself. As of now, I have heard nothing, and hope it is dying down, and it will just disappear in the interweb's deep dark cavernous caves. So trust me, be very careful what you do. People could use yours to build the program, attach your name to it and do the same thing they did to me, yes it is a slight chance, but it is a chance.

Just a friendly warning. Smile

Yah its not deleated I removed it because I got woried

I was worried that they would sue me but its only a bat file so its not really a program. The new version has all the R and TM symboles and no mention of Adobe® Photoshop® with out the R. and it deleats all instalation on the local comp so you install it when you run it and uninstall it when you exit.

I didn't mean to worry you...

I am sorry, I was just trying to give a little experience I had to you on the matter. What you are doing now sounds fine to me. Just make sure you are following trademark and license policy and there will be no problem. Probably wouldn't be a problem anyway, but it is good you know know.

Good work, Sounds like a good way to do it.

I would just make it so it

I would just make it so it unistalls. I wouldnt use this on my home computer because its already installed there but I would like to use it one other computers I might use and once Im done there, there shouldnt be any files left on the other computer. Or maybe make an option to chose to delete the files on close like when you start the bat file check 1 to delete on close or 2 not to delete, but if you cant it should uninstall by default.

I am gona make a prompt not to close

I am gona make a prompt not to close the dialauge untill you close Adobe® Photoshop® then you need to press enter (it is because of the admin thing and the regestry) It will uninstall every time you press enter on the script and it will install when you run the script. in other words I cant make an auto uninstall it needs to be user prompter or I could check for the prosses and when its gone It would un install but that will be laiter
