Does this paf version leave

Does this paf version leave any traces on the computer (e.g. AppData, Registry)?

By the way, who came up with this stupid smiley button in the top left corner of the browser window? In many betas they had a decent menu hidden under a less obtrusive button at the same place...

@ Emka

Hello,

We conducted numerous tests to ensure that this portable version leaves no trace on the host PC.

If you notice any discrepancies please let us know.

This logo-shaped smile appears only for users who do not have online account, if not, their avatar appears.

Neutral

Please, keep your tone neutral; there's no need to be impolite about it whether you like it or not. This is unlikely to be the best place to ask or comment about it, as well; discussion of Maxthon itself should take place in the Maxthon forums (English link). Consider discussions of portable apps here to be almost exclusively of the portability rather than the base app.

PAF details

Here are my findings with the PortableApps.com Format details and related items. I haven't yet tested its functionality or portability.

  • You shouldn't really use the Portable App Template; it's old, unsupported, less powerful and harder to use than the official PortableApps.com Launcher. It looks as though you've taken bits of the PAL template and PAT and mixed them up a bit. You should go to just the PAL template in its structure if you're going to use it at all (which you should). Looking at your configuration of it, this is the approximate configuration you need for Maxthon3Portable.ini:

    [Launch]
    ProgramExecutable=Maxthon3\Bin\Maxthon.exe
    CommandLineArguments=-appdatapath:"%PAL:DataDir%"
    
    [Activate]
    Registry=true
    
    [RegistryKeys]
    maxthon=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Maxthon3
    
    [Environment]
    PATH=%PATH%;%PAL:AppDir%\Maxthon3
    

    Consider whether the PATH addition is necessary.

    The only modification I've made there from your existing configuration is the command line arguments from using ..\..\Data to using "%PAL:DataDir%". The reason I suggest you should use %PAL:DataDir% rather than ..\..\Data if possible is that it means it's got an absolute path, so in Live mode you may be able to have [LiveMode]:CopyApp=false, which will make it faster to load as it doesn't need to copy Maxthon to the local disk. Also it proofs against any possible changes in how PortableApps.com Format apps can be structured (though no changes are foreseen at the moment). The quotes in the CommandLineArguments are for when running from a path with spaces; I don't yet know how that works with Maxthon3 as I haven't tested it.

  • You're not allowed to manufacture your own PortableApps.com splash screen due to trademark and quality control reasons. We only create them when we have certified that it's all properly portable, in PortableApps.com Format, ready for release, etc. etc. If you're doing a test release of it here, it should be structured as a Development Test, meaning the DisplayVersion in appinfo.ini the should be "3.0.17.1109 Development Test 1", and the splash screen should be the black and white Development Test release splash screen (as included in the PAL app template).
  • App\AppInfo\appinfo.ini: as a result of using PAT, you've got a badly formatted appinfo.ini which some incorrect or suboptimal values.
    [Format]
    Type=PortableApps.comFormat
    Version=2.0
    [Details]
    Name=Maxthon 3.0 Portable
    AppId=Maxthon 3Portable
    Publisher=Ray1 and Ldfa for Maxthon.fr
    Homepage=http://www.maxthon-fr.com/site/mx3/
    Category=Web Browser
    Description=Maxthon 3 Portable
    Language=Multilingual
    [License]
    Shareable=true
    OpenSource=false
    Freeware=true

    DisplayVersion=3.0.17.1109_multilingual
    [Control]
    Icons=1
    Start=Maxthon 3Portable.exe
    

    Here is what it should look more like:

    [Format]
    Type=PortableApps.comFormat
    Version=2.0
    
    [Details]
    Name=Maxthon 3.0 Portable
    AppID=Maxthon3Portable
    Publisher=Ray1 and Ldfa for Maxthon.fr
    Homepage=maxthon-fr.com/site/mx3/
    Category=Internet
    Description=Maxthon 3 is a fast and flexible browser, providing you with your choice of rendering engine.
    Language=Multilingual
    Trademarks=Maxthon is a registered trademark of Maxthon International
    
    [License]
    Shareable=true
    OpenSource=false
    Freeware=true
    CommercialUse=false
    
    [Version]
    PackageVersion=3.0.17.1109
    DisplayVersion=3.0.17.1109 Development Test 1
    
    [Control]
    Icons=1
    Start=Maxthon3Portable.exe
    

    That has a few things changed and the Trademarks line added - do you have an EULA you wish to show? If so, put it in the Other\Source directory, named EULA.rtf or EULA.txt. Also note that the Homepage (which omits http:// by convention) should be the homepage of the portable app; if you have a special page for the portable version or create one in the future that would probably be the correct link to have.

  • You didn't replace the title in help.html. Also a much shorter tagline would be better (they're not more than a dozen or so words, normally closer to half a dozen).
  • What is the product name to be? "Maxthon"/"Maxthon Portable", "Maxthon 3"/"Maxthon 3 Portable", or "Maxthon 3.0"/"Maxthon 3.0 Portable"? I've found references to all of these on your site, but I think Maxthon 3 is the most common?
  • Language switching based on the values in the PortableApps.com Platform would be a good feature (standard for our multilingual apps); how does Maxthon 3 select and store the language?

Looking at it all, I'm not sure if you've looked at the PortableApps.com Format specification; if you haven't, it would be a good idea to read it.

Please ask me if you have any questions.

To Chris Morgan

Thank you for your suggestions, I will try to implement them (my English is very imperfect and automatic translation of Google very approximate).

Could you tell me if I'm with the tool "PortableApps.com Launcher always need the nsis script file" Maxthon3PortableSource?

I look forward to the results of your tests 3 Portable Maxthon.

Note: Disregard my question, I just found, laboriously, the answer.

No

The PortableApps.com Launcher is simpler than that to use; all the launcher configuration is in App\AppInfo\Launcher. Install the PortableApps.com Launcher package and NSIS Portable (Unicode) and then you can you can just run the Generator over the Maxthon package directory. The splash screen goes in App\AppInfo\Launcher\splash.jpg (as with the app template).

Version in Directory / AppID

Generally, it's a bad idea to have the version in the directory/ appid. What happens when version 4 comes along? Will it still be "Maxthon 3Portable"? The AppID should be MaxthonPortable. If you anticipate making the older Maxthon portable at some point as well, it could be MaxthonClassicPortable, MaxthonRetro or similar. Or the new one could be MaxthonProPortable. On quick glance at the website, the difference between Maxthon Classic, Maxthon Latest and Maxthon 3 are a bit inobvious, so this could be a problem beyond just the portable version. If the others will be retired at some point anyway and Maxthon 3 is what the future will be, then having the AppID as MaxthonPortable would make the most sense and we'll just ignore the older versions.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Possibly justified

I think it's not quite as bad as all that; it looks at the moment like you have Maxthon Classic (1.x), Maxthon 2 and Maxthon 3. At the moment at least, that does seem to be the actual product name. I'm not sure though - in particular what may happen in the future. I agree with you that just MaxthonPortable tends to make more sense. And I suppose we can even have MaxthonPortable and the name of Maxthon 3 Portable, if we really want.

Naming is Fine

Calling it Maxthon 3 Portable as the name is just fine. FreeCommander does the same with with FreeCommander 2009 Portable. But their original version was FreeCommander2009Portable as the AppID, which will likely get them into trouble when they want to go and do a major upgrade, so we switched it to FreeCommanderPortable. Basically the same process/argument used here.

Getting there

OK, that's getting better Smile

  • There should be 8-bit (256 colour) icons in appicon.ico.
  • You've left the old launcher Maxthon 3Portable.exe in next to the new PAL-based Maxthon3Portable.exe.
  • The comment at the end of App\AppInfo\Launcher\Maxthon3Portable.ini should be removed.
    
    
    ; Details of the launcher.ini format are available in the PortableApps.com
    ; Launcher package. (You should not leave this comment in.)
    
  • The files in Other\Source from the PAL app template should be left in. They're designed for the end user and so should stay in for closed-source apps, not just for open-source apps.
  • App\readme.txt is missing from the PAL app template - we like to keep that in just to try to avoid people running the app without the launcher in a non-portable way (it just says "usually no need to touch stuff in here")

Now on to the actual app:

  • Works well and portably across drive letters (so long as you don't use Trident - then the cache goes to the local computer). It also copes with moving the directory - bonus marks; set [Launch]:DirectoryMoveOK=yes in App\AppInfo\Launcher\Maxthon3Portable.ini for better PAL 2.1 compatibility with that. Good job.
  • It runs its own updater; seeing as there's no update yet, I can't check how that works. Will that do any damage to the local system, a local installation or anything like that?
  • If it's possible, you should disable the "default browser" check by default. It's too easy at the moment to break portability by doing that as it asks you as soon as you start. Better still, put some switch in the browser itself so the portable version can not offer that option at all (but I don't expect that).
  • The separation of user stuff into Data\Users\guest etc. (I presume it would load your saved data from the web if you logged in) can be a bit of a pest. Does it keep a copy of every user's stuff that's logged in, or is there only one directory in Data\Users at a time?
  • Language switching could work with Data\Users\guest\config\config.ini, in the [language] section. However, it has three language variables... PAL is only designed to cope with one. And the point above about what happens with multiple users stands too. I don't feel like getting an account with their system so you'll need to tell me Smile

It's looking good, the issues are getting smaller. Smile The next release you do (while on the same version of Maxthon) should be Development Test 2, etc. Also update the main post so that it's got the latest. It would be good if you would follow this structure for the page (as it's a Beta Test, not a request).

Hope you're enjoying working with us! Smile

I think I have not forgotten anything, if so, I apologize because I have difficulty understanding English. I'm French! Wink

(First post updated) Wink

For the missing icons, missing those ico or png format?
I added those as png.

Maxthon 3 proposes automatically update, and it’s in the folder he carries the key.

It’s possible with the portable version that Maxthon 3 does not pass as the default browser.

Maxthon separation allows to manage users (with or without online account) to offer a custom profile, it's better to let Maxthon manage it.

Even if I have difficulties to understand your language, I am very pleased to work with you. Smile

Few more issues

The missing icons were from appicon.ico. There should be no appicon_48.png. Refer to the PortableApps.com Format specification for explanation. You may wish to add appicon_128.png which is suggested for higher quality app icons later when we may use it. That's not mandatory though.

Minor INI style thing, DirectoryMoveOK = yes should be DirectoryMoveOK=yes. That's the standard way Windows writes values, so that's how we do it.

App\readme.txt should be got from the PortableApps.com Application Template linked to from the PAL homepage, as should the contents of Other\Source which you haven't got.

Barring these issues and the default browser check, I believe this is ready.

Problem

Hello,

I'm having a little problem to finalize the project, after determining the path of the file makensis.exe setting.ini, the generator sends me this message:

ERROR: [Details]:Name [Details]:AppID or [Version]:PackageVersion not found in appinfo.ini files

I do not understand what I'm doing or what is missing in the file appinfo.ini?

Could you help me?

Answers bulk: For language must install the French, there are actually three, but only to the French site we offer this version.

To my knowledge, the auto update does not affect the host PC, but I'm not an expert! Sad

It is impossible to disable the proposal to put Maxthon as default browser, we can only advise not to do so.

User data (favorites for the moment) are stored in a particular folder with his profile, and are encrypted (for those that are stored online in an account Maxthon).

Thank you in advance
Ray1

Questions

I don't understand; what have you changed? The launcher was generated fine before, there's no need to regenerate it.

Maxthon has the "don't ask me again" option when it prompts for the default browser; I haven't been immediately successful trying to work out where it stores that. Do you know or can you find out? If we can just set that option to true then that solves the issue.

What is the encryption method used? Is it per-account (meaning host computer account, not Maxthon account)? If so (and I suspect it is, based on the fact that the RSA crypto key was created by running Maxthon), that's going to be troublesome.

Questions

I think I'm a little lost because of my big weaknesses in English, if you'll take a look at the test version 3, tell me if I advance or not.

Can you explain the procedure to be implemented to generate the readme.txt, and those that should be in the folder Other \ source, I do not get it right?

In the template

They're in the application template linked to from the PortableApps.com Launcher homepage, which is where you got the starter launcher.ini and help.html. They don't get modified from that.

ok did some testing, been meaning to get to it but been busy with my other projects.
1) AppName directory could be removed since you now have your app in it's own named folder.
2) you could adjust MaxthonTurboPortable.ini from CommandLineArguments=-appdatapath:"%PAL:DataDir%" to CommandLineArguments=-appdatapath:"%PAL:DataDir%\settings" (makes it easier for the PortableApps.com Platform backup tool to backup personal data when launched)

other than that it's shaping to be a pretty decent release.

it's looking pretty good

it's looking pretty good here, the final decision would have to come from John T. Haller though. I'll drop a line about it though, see what he thinks of the development so far.

Edit: this is from John when I talked to him on irc

JohnTHaller: We'll need the default prompt removed (default browser check).  They just need some default settings setup with it turned off.  And probably disk cache disabled as well (since it will actually make the app run slower on a flash drive, counterintuitively).

The Backup tool backs up all of Data, doesn't it? I didn't think that was ever an issue?

Thank you for the answers

Hello Zach and Chris,

We are, alas, not the developers of Maxthon 3.0, we only translate the language file, help users and freely distribute the product in Francophone countries.

We'll try to see how, by our own means we can solve this problem or ask developers to give us a version without the possibility to spend 3.0 Maxthon as default browser.

Can we still offer this version, pending resolution of this issue, warning, for example, the user's risk if it goes Maxthon as default browser?

Chris A: The question for me or for or Zach?

Default data

You don't need to worry about using %PAL:DataDir%\settings if you don't want to (it makes a neater directory tree without it, I think); %PAL:DataDir% is fine.

I think what needs doing is this:

  • Start a fresh profile (meaning delete the Data directory)
  • Click on the "don't ask me again" when it asks about being made the default browser
  • Go into the config and turn off the disk cache
  • Exit
  • Copy the contents of the Data directory to App\DefaultData (except for settings\MaxthonTurboPortable.ini, and if that leaves the settings directory empty, omit it).

Then when users install it, they'll get these settings by default.

It was indeed a problem of understanding due to my bad English.

Here is the Test version 6, which should correspond to your wishes, with the exception of the cache that can not currently be disabled.

patience, there is a strict

patience, there is a strict period of testing before it goes final, this not only goes for you but it goes for anyone with development tests. It will then be passed on to the release team and they will determine if it's release quality. so in the end, it all boils down to patience Blum

An idea?

Would you have any idea to work around this problem?

Maxthon 3.0 is not yet fully reached, some functions, like downloading, are not yet complete, the settings of the download is not yet included in the Options.

We will connect small problems encountered during these tests to the developers.

No problem, my English is not better! Sad

Ready

I think we're ready on this now. If you'd like to do a final/stable build, I think we can release this this week. Same with the non-turbo one if you'd like to support that ongoing as well.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Superb!

Hello John T. Haller,

This is the initial goal of our project, offer a portable version of Maxthon Turbo and Modern, and Maxthon Classic in the very near future.

Tell us what we should do, I am at your disposal.

Again thank you for your help.

Help please!

Hello John,

Is there a parade in order to open Portable Maxthon 3.0 Maxthon when a local instance of 1, 2 or 3 is open?

Parade?

Not sure what you mean. You mean a messagebox? There are string built in to handle this. Is there something else you need?

Parde = Solution, solve

Hello John, Wink

Firstly, sorry for my bad English.

The problem:
It is impossible to launch a portable version of Maxthon on the host PC if another instance of Maxthon 1.x, 2.x or 3.0 is already running.

The executable returns a message advising to close the running instance.

This possibility should not be a problem with Maxthon.

I think we've found a fix with the following line in the file AppNamePortable.ini :

"SingleAppInstance = false"

Have you got any idea about an official release of portable version of Maxthon (Turbo and Modern) ? Can we give a hand ?

Correct but not safe

SingleAppInstance=false would be the correct thing to do if it works properly simultaneously. However, you have the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Maxthon3 which is used for something (don't know what off-hand); this will stop you from running portable and non-portable simultaneously properly.

Happy new year !

Hi,

Crossing the line below to false, this does not seem to affect the operation of Maxthon 3.0 portable.

[Activate]
Registry = false

[RegistryKey]
maxthon = HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Maxthon3

What do you think?

Doesn't do it

Once you don't have [Activate]:Registry=true, the [RegistryKeys] section and other registry sections will be entirely ignored. If you need to do anything at all with HKCU\Software\Maxthon3, if it can be created at all, you need to have it.

Features

Dual Display Engines Maxthon uses the Ultra Mode, powered by the Webkit rendering engine, by default. It will switch automatically to Retro Mode, powered by the Trident rendering engine, as needed to display older-style Web pages.

Super Drag & Drop Drag and Drop to open new pages and images or perform a web search.

Magic fill After you enter the username and password for a website, Magic Fill will securely save and automatically enter them on future visits.

Ad Hunter Popup Blocker is the core of Maxthon 3’s Ad Hunter. Enable the feature and it will block annoying pop-ups automatically.

Sync and See Favorites Anywhere Registering as a Maxthon Passport member gets you instant access to cloud syncing services like online favorites.

Mouse Gesture Maxthon's Mouse Gesture feature lets you navigate through the web by moving the mouse in patterns that tell the browser to go back, forward, refresh, and even hide. That's just the beginnning. You can create your own gestures by selecting a mouse move and tying it to many different commands.

Maxthon Multi Search Compare search term results across Google, Yahoo, Bing and others. Customize Multi Search by adding additional search engines yourself.

And much more gradually with the development which is only the beginning!

Great!

Please post the final version of each one you'd like to make available (Turbo, Classic, etc) without the Development Test splash screen (you can add your own or we can make you a PA.c style one with your domain and ours on it if you'd like) and without Dev Test in the DisplayVersion. Essentially, the final version, using the filename generated by the PA.c Installer. Post it on your servers where you'd like it downloaded from and I'll create the homepage here and post it.

Going forward, just drop an email to the developers address with each new release and be sure to keep both the old and the new version up until we switch the portable app homepage and the updater database.
