and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

On Windows XP, don´t know which configuration because I´m on a Cyber Cafe... the App didn´t launch... showed a popup window reporting an error and to see a log I couldn't find...

hm...

that's weird because it works fine on the 3 computers i tried it on. there wasn't much to making this portable except changing where it stored an ini file, and i upx'd everything. Do you think upxing all the exes, dlls, and pyds is what's causing problems on some computers? One pyd file even went from 12MB to 3.7MB.

Hopefully somebody can give me some insight into this problem.

ok so I fixed some things in both NSIS scripts. Anyone who was having problems before, please test the new one to see if the problems are fixed or not.

The original Helpfile (README.html) is not included, so

I`ve found and downloaded it from the original side and put it into the convertall folder. Now it works. Perhaps You could include it by default?

No Help

The program ran fine but when you "push" the help button you get the message that the Read Me file can't be found.

Dev Test 3

sorry i guess i didn't try all the buttons; the help button now works as it should. That should be the end of the problems.

So... how would i go about moving this to a pre-release or an official release if either is possible? (i'm not sure if John only uses his apps for PortableApps.com or if he puts other people's on there too. i also realize there are probably tons of apps in the beta forums that are probably done also)

Dev Test 5

Dev Test 5 was released to make it fully paf compliant and a little perfectionist code change. I based this app off of the latest Sumatra release but i think mby the paf version for the very latest apps may be slightly higher (VER "1.5.6.0" vs VER "1.5.5.0"). Do I need to change something in my app to make it 1.5.6.0 or is it fine at the paf version it's at?

Nothing left behind, i'll check PAF conformity now...just trying to help Patrick out Wink

Edit:

  • Add your copyright to other/source.readme.txt
  • Add "_Development_Test_5_en-us" without quotes to !define FILENAME "ConvertAll_Portable_0.4.1" in the installer
  • You don't have a DefaultData directory under App (i'm not sure if this is needed or not)

well i just downloaded it three times in a row and it worked fine. although the server does go down from time to time. plz try again to see if it's the server or possibly a problem w/ your computer and my installer.

Still corrupted. I had this same issue with Eraser Drop Target, but using DownThemAll! worked, so I'll try that.

Great App

It turns out, DownThemAll! was able to manage the download better after all.

This was a fantastic pick, I had been looking for something like this for quite a while, so thanks for the find.

Here's some changes to make it as PAF Compliant as I know, they're really picky.

  1. Try to put a less straight-up and personal description in the help.html file.
  2. There's a Thumbs.db in App\AppInfo, delete it and turn off thumbnail caching.
  3. I can see you (or they) UPXed , did you UPX using the recommended UPX tools?
  4. To be more generic, change Other\Source\AppSource.txt to: "The source for the base application in this package can be obtained from the portable applications homepage mentioned in the help.html file."
  5. Why's option.py in Other\Source?
  6. You have double quotes on the website (line 25) in the source.
  7. I think you have a small fade-in on the splash which isn't being used anymore, change the 100 in line 161 to 0.
  8. The version number atop the Other\Source\Readme.txt is for the launcher, which can be set as 1.5.
  9. The settings directory isn't shown in the INSTALLATION / DIRECTORY STRUCTURE section in that Readme, any reason why?
  10. The legal copyright in the source is 'PortableApps.com and contributers' for our apps, now.
  11. I don't know what you modified in the installer source, or if you're using a old version, but use a fresh install script from a recent app, and only remove stuff between PRE and POST install code, and change the basic values.

That's all I caught. Good work!

changes

ok i changed almost everything you said (not uploaded yet). The help.html text was just copied from the app's site but i guess i can write a new one. yeah i used the recommended upx command except I added *.pyd files to it. Option.py is in there because i modified the original app's source code and recompiled. that file was the only one changed (i edited the source code to make the app store it's ini in Data/settings instead of in Application Data). The portable apps installer gives me a "unknown variable/constant "{SectionMain}" detected" warning when i compile it so that's why i changed it originially. Does everyone get that message?

0.4.2 Worked in XP

I installed the latest version 0.4.2 and tried it out. Appears to work fine and didn't seem to leave any traces behind in the registry.
This was tested on an IBM Thinkpad running XP professional.
