Family Tree Maker is a family tree making program for recording, printing and reporting on a family tree. It contains web assistance.
This is simply a launcher that cleans up after itself. The Code is packed and is not perfect but I have used various Registry tools to help me discover what needed to be checked and removed. This is for more advanced windows users as files and terms herein may not be fully explained well.
You will need to install Family Tree Maker 16 to a system and generate your own portable USB stick folder for it per some instructions below.
Create the following folders on your portabledrive.
The portable program folder should contain
\App\ftw (contains all Family Tree Maker files from original install)
\Data\settings (contains ftw.ini, two reg files)
Copy all Family tree maker files to the USB stick into a folder called \PortableApps\FTWPortable\App\ftw
Rememeber to find any DLL files installed to the \Windows\System32 folder and copy the files to the same ...App\ftw folder
Create two registry files, FTW_portable_HKLM.reg and FTW_portable_HKLU.reg, by exporting the
values from your registry into the logically respective file names. Save the reg files into the ...\Data\settings\ folder
Copy the Family Tree Maker ini file found in \Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\FTW\.......\.ini into the ...\Data\settings folder
Extract the portable launcher below to the \PortableApps\FTWPortable\ folder.

I may follow this thread and post more info as necesary. The launcher zip file is hosted on FortuneCity which may cap downloads at some rate. If there is ANY sort of demand on the file, you may have to wait before it becomes available.
