I’m a newbie to PortableApps (but not application deployment as I use Novell ZenWorks at work) and I have a deployment question.
I’ve been doing lots of searching on the forum (and Google) about portable applications and how to install / deploy them.
When an application needs to write to the registry, the launcher / wrapper firstly makes a copy of the registry key, writes the new settings, launches the application, and then writes the original settings back to the registry.
My assumption here is that PortableApps runs as the currently logged in user. I work for a University and the majority of users have very little rights over their workstation. Therefore if an application requires write access to HKLM, and the user running the application from PortableApps has no rights to HKLM then the portable application will fail?
Thank you for developing PortableApps, I really like it.
