The other Piriform Products

Can you also make launchers for CCleaner and Defraggler?

Two Things

There are two things:

1) You should rename the registry backup to 'recuva.reg' instead of 'Registry.reg' because when you use the backup function of PAM it will become unclear what this registry entry is for.
2) You need to add 'SettingsDirectory=Data\settings' after 'RecuvaDirectory=App\rcsetup112' in order for the ini file to work correctly.

I just messed around with the launcher for a bit, but it looks like it works.

A couple of changes

Have the launcher direct to the site if the program does not exist.

on the splash screen line there is no fade, so change the 200 to the 0

In the App\appinfo there is a thumbs.db file so delete that

The registry thing that has already mentioned

In the readme and in the code add your copyright under Johns

Change the website to http://PortableApps.com/Development/test

change the readme to be for recuva rather than sumtra pdf

that is all for now

Please search before posting. ~Thanks

good job

I will take a look again at the paf stuff and see if there is anything else

about directing them to where they have to download from check out this site

IE Plugin

Some more changes

  • In the Other\Source dir

    • In your code

      • Add your line of copyright under johns (make it look like this)

        ;Copyright (C) 2004-2008 John T. Haller
        ;Copyright (C) 2004-2008 Nathan
        
      • Change the Website to http://PortableApps.com/Development/test
    • In the readme
      • make the copyright look like this

        ;Copyright (C) 2004-2008 John T. Haller
        ;Copyright (C) 2004-2008 Nathan
        
    • change your JPEG (RecuvaPortable.jpg) to be the actual DevTest splash screen found here
    • There this line in the ini file
      ;Replace (Appname) with the name of your app, and (AppEXE) to the name of the executable of your app.
      

      what is it for?

  • In the App\ dir
    • Add a readme file check any released app to see what needs to be in it
    • Add the recuva dir so that people know where to put the program
  • In the main dir
    • Add the help.html file, once again check any released app for the format of the html file
  • General stuff
    • You need your icon to be: 16x16, 32x32, 48x48 in both 256 and xp.
    • Dont zip the installer. Just upload the installer

that is all I found

Isn't Recuva already portable?

Maybe I'm missing something, but all Piriform products are fully portable. Moreover, I've been running Recuva from my USB drive for a few months, and never noticed it touching any registry settings.

There is a setting in Options... > Advanced > Save all settings to INI file. When checked, it creates recuva.ini in the same folder as the exe file.

When started, the program checks whether recuva.ini is present and if yes the settings are then loaded from there instead of the registry. I know this because I have two copies of Recuva installed - on HDD and USB drive, each copy with separate settings. The former uses registry and the latter stores its settings in the INI file.

So basically your launcher is useless.

well..

I know about the .ini and all, but not only can you add my launcher to the PAM but it is easier for people who do not want to do that to just run it without changing anything. Plus since its in the PAM its easier to launch and keep track of applications.

It would be useless if all

It would be useless if all you're trying to do is get it to run from a USB drive. But I've always found that even stand-alone launchers add structure and ease-of-use to applications. While I tend to just use stand-alone apps by themselves like you described, any self-contained, do-everything-for-you launcher only makes an app more accessable. And I think they are great entry point for learning this stuff.

Could you be nicer?

There is no need to be so rude. Also The launcher is not useless. If the .ini file is accidentally deleted or not copied or whatever the app will no longer be portable. The launcher can run make sure the .ini is present. Then if not create the .ini or if it is just start the app.

I think i can do all that, but about not zipping it, esnips does not support paf files so it doesnt let me upload it. It will always say "File type not supported".

What ever is easier for either u or patrick is fine for me. I should be having a development test 3 up soon. The only thing that is slowing me down is that whole "if app is not found make a redirect link to download it." I looked at that site and the examples but i think i need to do a bit of testing with that before i can upload. I pretty much did everything you said i needed to do.

Well

I included in the help.html file the file u need to download, so i might later put that whole redirect thing in a later development test, I dont want to do it yet cause i read on there that if its done wrong it can cause memory leaks so.. I might do some testing with it before i release it to the public.

great job

you have been really good with these releases
if it was not for the "open-source" policy you would be ready to release

here is one more thing, you don't need to release a new test but on the next big release you need this file

In the Other\source dir you need a file called AppSource.txt
it should contain this

The source code for the base application in this package is available from the portable applications home page mentioned in the help.html file.

The launcher doesn't seem to

The launcher doesn't seem to work... Once I put the files in "App\rcsetup113" I can get the splash screen, the the launcher exits. No errors, no Recova.

I'm _guessing_ that something was coded specific to version 1.13 (since we're using rcsetup113 as the path) and the program is at 1.20... Not sure how you wold do that, but that's all I got Wink

The program does run directly just fine, though.... but I'd like an item in my PA Menu (Which is also why I disagree with the "launcher is useless" remark way above

Update of launcher, please

Update of launcher, please read above for changes. This launcher now integrates the same easy download prompt followed by automatic extraction of the zip folder as the CCleaner launcher. It also fixes the same bugs and adds in more functionality. As stated last time if there is an interest to automate compression of recuva through UPX let me know AFAIK no problems arise from doing so. Any comments, bug reports, or nice gestures are always appreciated. Enjoy! Smile

admin needed still

i downloaded the updated launcher of the file and now when it is all extracted it prompts me for the admin access to run defraggler, and i thought the whole reason we make them portable is to be able to run them from a flash drive so that you could use it without being an admin and for me that is key, as i wont have that access when i use it, so please get that bug fixed as it is suposed to be running in a portable mode, aka, non admin mode...or am i mistaken??... anyways just FYI...

yes i am new, no im not a "noob" when it comes to being a geek, yes i understand the concept of the system of portable apps, i may be making this my first post here, but thats purely because i was too lazy to register, but now i need to to get this app working like i need it to...

windows vista basic / premium, using premium now...2 diff. computers being used

please and thank you...

Well does this only happen

Well does this only happen when you are trying to run defraggler? Have you had this problem with any of my other portable piriform apps? With Portableapps it doesnt mean that it will allow you to run it as an admin, it just means that the applications settings will not be saved onto the computer but rather onto your flash drive in the "Data\settings" folder. Its also to keep things organized. If you do know the password to the admin account I believe I could put in the ability to do a RunAs. This would allow you to run this as admin while your using a limited account. But this might slow down startup time of the app. I also believe that to use defraggler you would need admin rights so it can gain access to all of your computers files and organize them properly. But I'm not 100% sure on that. Ill check the defraggler website and see if it mentions admin rights as a requirement.
Edit: Yup you do in fact need admin rights. Please see here...
