Are you just warning that

Are you just warning that this is coming (yay!), or did the download link get messed up? I'd like to try this.

Oh look, there it is...

Nice

Looks nice.

Changes! Shiiiizam!

  • In the appicon.ico, one of the 32's is TRUE colour, apposed to XP (32 bit).
  • You didn't UPX. Any reason why? If not, UPX using John's compressor.
  • The App\Readme.txt says 7-Zip, change it to say something more generic to all apps.
  • You're missing Other\Source\AppSource.txt.
  • Your XNResourceEditorPortable.ini mentions 7-Zip a couple times.
  • In the Other\Source\Readme.txt, only the first directory setup is now supported.
  • In the Other\Source\Readme.txt, it mentions 'XN Resource EditorPortableSource' directory, which should be changed to 'Source'.
  • In the Other\Source\Readme.txt, remove the version number from the first line.
  • In the source, it says copyright Powrjuce. (typo)
  • In the source, the LegalCopyright should be PortableApps.com & Contributers.
  • In the source, the VER variable is for the launcher, which is at like 1.5.5.0.
  • The appinfo.ini says the version number is 0.5.0.0, looks to me like it's 3.0.0.1.
  • In the appinfo.ini, a few times it says XNResourceEditor where it should be XN Resource Editor. (stupid find & replace).
  • There's also keys left under the same directory setup (Software\Woozle) under HKLM it looks like you missed. NSIS Portable should be a good launcher to use the check the user type, and if it's Admin, remove those keys.
  • In the source, change the 200 on line 183 to 0 as we're dropping splash fades.

That's all. Lookin' good, and thanks for doin' this.

Edit: Forgot to mention, Zach Hudock did a nice logo here. I'd ask him if he minds you using it, if he doesn't, it'd look great in the splash and as an icon replacement.

License

You need to contact the author and ask if his source can be released under an open source license. He has his source available, but I don't think he's attached a license to it at all. So, we can't use it or even redistribute it without permission.

Probably

You probably should. Although it looks like the author might be ok with you doing it. If it were on SourceForge you definitely should as you'd be violating the SF terms of service.

Is this project still going?

Has anyone heard anything from the author about the use of his software?

License

I just saw Framakey had XN Resource Editor available and listed as the MPL. I was curious as to how they decided it was MPL, so I check the source of XN Resource Editor. Although there's no actual license file, about 4 of the files in the source package have the MPL at the top of them. So I think you may be okay to re-release.

I saw it was MPL licensed at

I saw it was MPL licensed at one point. However, I think the author changed it.

Edit: Yes, it is MPL. http://www.wilsonc.demon.co.uk/delphi.htm

yeah good find. so since it's the mpl license, does that mean we need permission like with firefox?

Good?

I think this is good for a pre-release from my quick test. The DisplayVersion should also be 3.0.0.1 in the AppInfo.ini, though. Any other testers?

I Will

When I get a chance. This whole Windows thing is holding me back.

Also, think RegShot will ever go out? I was thinking it'd be handy to have some PortableApps.com Utils like RegShot, NSIS, XN Resource Editor, etc all out together to make it easier. But it is a small developerish utility, so maybe it can just stay floating around the forums.

I think

having a dev pack with this one, NSIS and johns compressor and others may be cool.

seems to work under vista

Sorry about not getting the chance to test it before now, but I've just gave it a quick test with vista ultimate sp1 (admin account) and it works well, and leaves nothing obvious behind.
