Portable Frostwire?

Would it be possible to build a portable version of a Gnutella p2p client (preferably Frostwire)?? This would be great, because I constantly travel and use multiple computers, and this way I can download without having to install and uninstall the program over and over. It would be right there in my ipod.

Well...

From the looks of it, you'd need either a portable java implimentation or the assumption that everyone else has java preinstalled... I don't like the second option, and I don't know of a way to do the first, but I'm looking into it...

It doesn't appear to create

It doesn't appear to create any registry keys, just the application data folder. If you feel safe assuming that every computer has java then here is a batch launcher that will carry around your frostwire profile. It is for use with the zip/anyOS distribution.

Problems...

So I'm working under the assumption that Java is installed and building a portable app based on that... but I've run into a problem and I'm turning to the community for help. The following is the code that is giving me problems...


CreateDirectory "$APPDATA\FrostWire"
CopyFiles /SILENT "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\FrostWire\*" "$APPDATA\FrostWire"
ExecWait $EXECSTRING
CopyFiles /SILENT "$APPDATA\FrostWire\*" "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\FrostWire"
RMDir /r "$APPDATA\FrostWire"

The problem is, it copies the settings over fine, then copies them back, then launches frostwire... any ideas what's going wrong?
