- Forgot to add drive switching. Drive switching added.

- Clean install recommended.
126.96.36.1990 Development Test 2 (2010-01-28):

- Added new Portugese translation to launcher.
Removed 'Preserve App Directory' code in installer as it's too complicated to maintain here. From now on, the app directory will *not* survive a failed upgrade/reinstall. So make a backup before trying
- Tweaked $REBOOT code.
22.214.171.1246 Development Test 2 (2009-12-11):
Fixed bug in post install code that caused an upgrade to fail.
EDIT: If you're upgrading, delete the "App\Glary Utilities Portable" folder first
126.96.36.1996 Development Test 1 (2009-11-19):
Glary Utilities updated to 188.8.131.526. No issues. Well, none that weren't in the last version anyway
- I couldn't check the 'registry optimize/reboot' thing as it said my registry didn't need it so I wasn't given the option! Nothing else seems to have changed so I presume that hasn't either. You can report any problems below.
- Optimized $SETTINGSDIRECTORY code.
- Fixed app name bug in "GlaryUtilitiesPortable.ini".
- Minor PAF fixes.
184.108.40.2068 Development Test 1 (2009-09-25):
- App has been updated to 220.127.116.118. No issues.
18.104.22.1688 Development Test 4 (2009-09-21):
- The app now survives a reboot and cleans up properly after the registry defragmenter (see notes below).
- Extended "CheckRunning" to include all the EXE files the app uses.
22.214.171.1248 Development Test 3 (2009-09-04):
- It's too easy to leave the Memory Optimizer open in the system tray after shutting down the main app. If you then close the Memory Optimizer, a registry key is left behind (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GlarySoft\Glary Utilities\MemDefrag). The launcher now waits for the Memory Optimizer to close before exiting and cleaning up properly.
126.96.36.1998 Development Test 2 (2009-08-24):
- Fixes for a couple of files left over in the TEMP directory after checking for updates (thanks horusofoz).
188.8.131.528 Development Test 1 (2009-08-20): Initial release
When running, Glary Utilities Portable will temporarily appear in MSConfig/Startup. This is intentional. Do not remove!
You can go ahead and reboot the computer after using the Registry Defragmenter. GUP will run at startup and you can carry on working or close it.
- 184.108.40.2068 Development Test 4:
If you've rebooted previous versions after using the Registry Defragmenter you may be left with duplicate files/folders which won't be moving correctly. The easiest way to fix this is to backup/delete the files in your settings directory. There's nothing critical being saved and they'll be recreated if missing anyway. If you have no local installation you can also delete the "HKCU\Software\GlarySoft\Glary Utilities" registry key and it's parent "HKCU\Software\GlarySoft" (if left empty).
The app overwrites
any some saved preferences with the defaults at startup.
