Anyone wants FAR portable? It's cool "Norton commander"-like file manager. Was shareware but now is open source. It's not bad, because supports plugins. Please go http://www.farmanager.com/index.php?l=en
P.S. Sorry my bad english... Hello from ukraine!
I have it for some zime on some of my sticks. Seems to work well , thought it is not in paf format so far, but does the job from the stick.
Maybe someone likes to make portable version. As for me, it's good candidate to be portabled!
on it sown.
I have to admit , I di dnot run the regshot on this one, but it is otherwise portable as it is. I have it on my stick, all works fine.
Just copy it to your stick and run it.
FAR Manager, in it's current format, unfortunately not portable by nature - almost all of it's settings written to the registry. If you check out the latest stable release (http://www.farmanager.com/files/Far20b1263.x86.20091204.7z), you may notice the two batch files (SaveSettings.cmd, RestoreSettings.cmd).
Using these batch files, FAR Manager can be run in portable mode, however, additional plugins may or may not using the registry, for example as the Colorer does.
Or, feel free to use this example script (basically it's the NSIS rewrite of the batch files mentioned above, except that preserves the settings of the installed Far (if any)):
I've tested this on my system (winxpsp2), seems fine (the LOCAL MACHINE hive might be unused).
I think it's possible but only if using /u switch. With it FAR will store settings to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Far2\Users\username instead or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Far2 and will not overwrite settings of currently installed FAR.
We want FAR! Far! Far-Far-Far-Far/ Give us Far! We want to destroy windows appearence with FAR! Portable Far ARrrr-GGGhhhh!
There are 3 (already) branches of Far Manager
3.x (curren). General difference - Far Manager settings and native (3.x) plugins settings are stored in SQLiteDB.
API was completely redesigned (and is not stable for current day). Many bugfixes and improvements. Far 3.x can still deal with ANSI plugins (from Far 1.x), but due to API break can't work with ‘old’ unicode plugins (from Far 2.x). However! There is external plugin wrapper. Through it you can use many plugins from Far 2.x.
Funktioniert sehr gut für mich.
