cool

I don't have any use for the program but i tested it anyway Smile and discovered some things:

  • the appinfo.inni is missing
  • it saves the registry keys to a file called 7zip_portable. You might want to change that Smile
  • It leaves the keys HKCU\Software\ORL, HKCU\AppEvents\EventLabels\VNCviewerBell, HKCU\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\VNCviewer
  • You can delete the unins000 in /App/Tight VNC Viewer
  • the version of the launcher is not the one of the package. The current one is "1.5.3.0"
  • You could/should add your copyright under John´s

Good job!

one of the reg keys

HKCU\Software\ORL my app is suppose to use HKCU\Software\ORL\VNCviewer
if u used HKCU\Software\ORL then it would affect both versions SERVER and VIEWER

so i got that one settled

Na na na, come on!

couple of things

you used the latest specs which is good... but:

1: in the data\settings folder the file is names 7-zipsettings
2: you dont move the data files from the app\tight vnc viewer\
3: also the main folder should not have any spaces (i think)

if you need help with code i can help if not
that is the stuff i just saw by using it
good job so far

Please search before posting. ~Thanks

Proxy option

Is there any way/plans to get this to use a proxy to connect to the remote machine?

Settings not stored

Hey all, the viewer works perfectly fine, but apart from the small errors mentioned earlier, it doesn't remember it's settings. I can't verify it, but my guess is that it still sends it's settings to the registry.
Whatever it is, the connection settings are storeable in a .vnc file, but this is not always what you'd want and the global settings aren't stored _at all_.

Please fix this, because I use this portable app a lot! (And so: Thanks a lot for making this portable!)

Its a flaw in the launcher.
