Nice!

This is really useful to use for clearing private data like .tmp files from a host pc. I'll test this out! Thanks

Your Welcome

I hope everything works well, this is the second time I made a launcher for a program that saves to a .ini file, so it might have some flaws in it.

If there are those of you

If there are those of you that use the standard build, I will release a launcher for that one, because all that is left is registry on that one. Any thought on this?? or are you guys who use this fine with it using the portable build?

no

fist, you double posted. second, no, there is no reason to support a non-portable version when there is already a portable build to use ini instead of registry. that's the only difference; it is the exact same product

Yea, it wouldn't make any sense making this portable as it already is...
I mean it's 2.83 mb on my usb drive, you'd either raise it a few hundred kbs, or lower it.

Been using this program for a while, really useful.

Actually the size

The size should stay the same as it is only moving the .ini from the $PROGRAMDIRECTORY to the SETTINGSDIRECTORY I might make it so it does that and makes a backup to the settingsdirectory.

No difference

I think I might do the regular one so if the user wants they can choose to save to an ini, by going to advance settings, or just leave it as is which will save to the registry and delete.

.

but that makes no sense. we love it here when app makers use ini files instead of the registry because it's cleaner for portability. the makers of this app have done so and you want to use the registry? people don't need the option for registry, as it adds no benefit. the only benefit i can think of is if someone tries to use the normal version of ccleaner with the launcher for the portable build. either way it's nice to have it with a pretty launcher but since we can only do a launcher for now, having a launcher for this is unnecessary as it is already completely portable. when we do freeware apps then we should have a PAF version

k

Im looking forward to freeware releases soon, but i think still a user would like to use something they can integrate into the PAM, such as this even though it is already portable, also I am currently adding the option so it makes a backup of the .ini just in case it gets deleted you can always go back and recover your original settings. So this could be a reason to make a launcher to add more features that the original freeware program doesnt have or doesnt do.

New Release

Read above for what I added, hope that helps more just in case the .ini gets deleted then you will have a backup as long as you dont launch the program again and close it, after every use, ccleaner.ini will be backed up to DefaultData folder.

Doesn't use saved settings

I tested out the launcher and it does backup your settings, but the next time you use the program, it doesn't use the saved settings. It creates a new ccleaner.ini in the program directory. I think the problem lies in the MoveSettings part of the launcher.

New Test 4

Read above for changes. As long as firefox is in the same directory as CCleanerPortable, it should open, such as if u have PAM then all your apps will be in the "PortableApps" folder which if this is so then Firefox will open to prompt u to download CCleaner if u do not have it. If not IE will open. If you have any problems let me know.

So CCleaner can be in PAF

So CCleaner can be in PAF format. We know it's already portable. A few of the apps on this site were already portable, and just repackaged with a launcher so they all had the same look and feel as the other apps here.

Found Problem With Settings

I think I found the problem with the launcher not using the saved settings. When the launcher is run, a new ccleaner.ini is created in the program directory and that file is used rather than the settings being copied over from the settings directory. For some reason, the program never runs the OriginalSettings section, so the settings never get copied over. I don't know how to fix it, I'm just pretty sure that is the problem. I don't think line 200 ever gets run.

Also, I don't understand what the point of backing up the settings to the DefaultData folder is when the settings are already backed up to the Data/settings folder. Maybe you could enlighten me.

Well

the settings arent backed up to the Settings directory, it is just moving from settings directory to program director and back again, also the backup is just in case they get deleted. Also I dont know why the settings arent being updated as I fixed that in Test 4 I believe. please can you try a fresh new copy,and tell me if it is the same

Huge Bug

So I figured out exactly why this doesn't work for me, there's a bug in your code. I've been using the ini to disable the splashscreen. By doing this line 194 becomes true and the program skips to GetPassedParameters and thus the settings don't get copied over. You should figure out a better way to run this so that disabling the splashscreen doesn't break the launcher.

Edit: I accidently double posted. Can a mod fix this. Thanks.
[Done, mod Tim]

3) Then I put the the ccsetup207.exe file into p:/portableapps/ccleanerportable/app
4) I tried to run ccleaner from the portableapps menu but got the above error
5) I then re-downloaded and installed CCleaner_Portable_2.7_Test_2_en-us.paf.exe
6) I tried to run ccleaner from the portableapps menu but got the above error

My OS: Vista Home Premium SP1

or adapt the code for the portable apps search from the installer, that way you can search for the firefox portable folder

or in the ini file add a line that says "path to firefox portable" so that people can put it there if they want

If you can't find FFP in the default location

Could you just launch the download with the system's default URL handler, please.

I have two copies of FFP, one of which IS in the default location, but on my normal machine, I have locally installed FF as well, and it is -always- open, which nixes FFP launching cleany anyways.

However, when I ran this app, it launched IE (yeuk) for the download, which then promptly fail to d/l it anyway due to the default settings of the popup blocker (sigh).

I'd definitely suggest that if you try FFP first, you fall back to the system default, not to Internet Explorer.

Run As...

I normally use Ccleaner as is on my USB drive and I enjoy it so.
Having a launcher would be beneficial to me if it provided an option to "Run as... The Following User" when the program is launched. Such an option is used in the jkDefrag and Start-up Manager applications that have been in beta testing (I actually requested this option for Start-up Manager. Perhaps Travis would be kind enough to share his code?

not my code

well actually my code is only for gaining administrator privleges, not really running as another user. ccleaner doesn't need admin privileges does it? if you're requesting this to be able to have ccleaner clean other profiles from the current profile, i guess it could be done with RunAs but it's not really necessary. i guess it's up to Nathan if he wants to write code to allow that to be done through the ini file or something.

edit: now that i think about it, i'm not so sure that there is even a way to get the functionality you're wanting, even if some sort of runas is implemented. a runas won't change what profile you're currently logged into i don't think.

It may be a very stupid question, but why this launcher, if the program itself is already portable?

For backup functionality

This launcher saves the settings to the Data folder. This way you can backup your preferences with the PortableApps backup utility and restore them if you have to reformat the drive, rather than copying everything off your drive

What would be great

What would be great is if Nathan rename it to CCleaner Portable 2 and not 2.7 so we will always be able to update CCleaner to versions like 2.10 and the name of the app would be actual all the time.

I did that a long time ago but what would be cool is if Nathan rename the programm to CCleaner Protable 2 and rename the folder to ccleaner2. The name would be actual each time you update because it's always the version 2 with .6, .7, .10 ,etc.

I think that is because you

I think that is because you arent using the portable build, here is the link to the portable build, http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds/downloading-portable
This build writes to an ini file so if your not seing an ini in your "Data" folder then that probably means ur using the wrong one, cause this launcher doesn't take care of any registry. But if you are using the portable one, then ill check this out and see if it still leaves registry behind.

Did you download CCleaner

Did you download CCleaner from the authors website and put it into the App folder in your portable install? It's not OSS, so the .exe doesn't come with the package you downloaded from here.

Maybe..

I think this maybe from copying the CCleaner folder into your launchers CCleaner folder rather than just copying the contents into it. I suspect this as its a mistake I made a few times with many of the PA launchers. If this is the case maybe make a note to copy the contents not the folder the CCleaner container folder?

New update, now if an update

New update, now if an update comes out you will be able to use any version of Ccleaner, later I will change the backup feature to backup once after the first launch. Sorry for the long time for an update, I have been very busy with school and my personal life. If anything doesnt work please let me know, and I will begin to look into the problem, and hopefully get it fixed within a week of the post. Smile

I know that, this launcher

I know that, this launcher uses the portable version, this launcher is made to back up your settings, and in the future, compress all of ccleaners files. So this launcher is not pointless and is quiet useful if you want to be on the safe side of having a backup of your settings.

Launcher Request

I would like to request only a launcher for Protection ID. I was directed to you for help for a launcher and I'd hope that you could provide me a launcher for this application.

Thank You.

Sorry Foyzul1988, It doesn't

Sorry Foyzul1988, It doesn't work quite like that. I must have miss explained. In your original Protection ID request thread, edit the original post to say the app is freeware and you are requesting a launcher for it. When I said look here for an example I meant an example of a launcher. In this thread Nathan9222 has created a launcher for CCleaner so it can have a PortableApps wrapper.

In your request thread specify you are requesting a launcher. eg. Change the title to Protection ID [Launcher Only]. Hope this is a better explanation.

Great! Works good.

Bet you're relieved to see someone was able to get it working by reading the forum post. Everything's fine but I have one problem that hasn't been mentioned. The launcher is ugly as sin. Does it have to look like that because it's not a featured app? I've got the PAM R34 MOD so I really didn't need the launcher (and I don't need the extended portability)... no offense, but I really only got the launcher so it would have a uniform splash screen. As silly as that sounds, I know.

Maybe you couldn't make one because redistributing Piriform's trademarked logo would be illegal? If so I understand. Is there a tutorial for making the splash screens? Like where to get the official footer, what font to use, the high-quality flash drive with PA logo, stuff like that.

Not sure.. but yeah I agree

Not sure.. but yeah I agree the splash is pretty lame. I would just look at the splash dimensions by right clicking on it and reading its properties. Then just use photoshop or gimp and use those dimensions and then piece it all together how you would like it. I dont think it would be illegal to use their logo just as long as its for your personal use. There might be a template for making splash screens but i dont know the link so sorry. Anyways let us know what you create or if you still have anymore questions. Biggrin
