    help.....

    Does anyone know what environmental variable Ares uses?? I have been looking through the source code but I do not know what I am looking for. Ares stores its data in "%UserProfile%\Local settings\Application Data\Ares"

    May Not

    It may not use an environment variable at all, try APPDATA or USERPROFILE, if neither work, then you're out of luck.

    I used....

    I used both of those and when I use USERPROFILE, it doesnt put the data in the settings folder, but it moves it to the %HOME%\Ares which is weird. idk this is the only thing stopping me from releasing it. I can always use the USERPROFILE then just use a few Renames to get it to the settings folder.

    it's probably using a

    it's probably using a windows API call and the api call has the env var userprofile in it. i don't know why you would redirect the files to home only to move them back and forth, why not just move the files back and forth to appdata?

    I just went ahead and posted this, there is no problems with the registry, just the settings. So any help fixing this would be appreciated. Hope you like. Smile

    K I got it now, it was $LOCALAPPDATA which makes sense. I should get a new release out which will take care of the data I just need to do a few test with it to make sure it works properly.

    Ha new update, Cant believe I didnt catch the problem mentioned above. Please use this one because any files that you may have downloaded from a locally installed Ares will be overwritten and you may lose any files you have downloaded.

    k...

    Well I have just discovered that Ares leaves a few keys in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes" so since I do not believe that any settings are stored in there except if things are torrents, and a few other things, do you think it would be ok to just put in the script to just delete them??

    Is it just.....

    Is it just me or is Ares not connecting?? Its been like this for the last 2 days I believe because I used it the day I released this and it was working.

    ummm ok..... Not sure if ur tryin to insult me or wat, but if Ares had problems or anything, or if u wanted to improve it you should have posted what was wrong here. I havent really even looked into Ares portable since the last release because nobody posted any problems. So ill check out you "no flaws 100% portable" Ares and see what you improved and make a new one based off of the one you gave a link to. Smile

    Um

    That's kind of rude. You should post problems or suggestions not take over the project.

    Not sure about an update but thanks for your offer on this. I plan on updating all my app launchers in this forum in due time. Hopefully once school slows down or during the summer. Wink

    Is possible to change the location of the shared folder and the folder of torrents, changing the file AresPortable.ini located in the folder AresPortable, the paths not routes must contain the letter of unit nor two points.

    Please test it for more details.

    RegShot

    I installed and downloaded a torrent to test. Here is what I found:

    • A lot of keys were added, ~50 were directly related to ares
    • The default download directory should be the Data directory of the PAF
    • Vista and Windows 7 won't like C:\Documents\Downloads
    • There appear to be a lot of .NET related changes, but I don't think Ares Galaxy is .NET. Not sure what happened there.

    I couldn't post the full RegShot, but here is the edited down version:

    did I steal your project?

    I was just looking through the forums and I found this topic! I made my own version too, after reading this post I tried Shareaza, and it sucked, so I put that off and made Ares Portable.

    Here is my version (the latest):
