Portable AIM Triton

Don't know whether this was requested or not, but can you guys make a Portable AIM Triton? That would be awesome! Smile

Although I have not developed any portable applications, I have a little bit of an understanding of how it's done. And I don't think that Triton can be made portable. For several reasons:

1) It isn't open source (and thus you can't legally modify it... I think)
2) I'm pretty sure it requires an AOL Connectivity service to be running. Since that requires access to the computer's services.exe, I'm pretty sure it can't be done.

I could certainly be wrong, though Smile

I would suggest taking a look at Gaim or Miranda IM... both of those support AIM and are open source and portable. (Just look at the apps hosted on the left)

also try gaim It is an open source IM client that will let you use AIM, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, and other common/not so common programs. I use the full version and I love it.

If you're just looking for an AIM Client, TerraIM is a fabulous client. It fits on a floppy disk (648 kb) and it's a single .exe that runs (no install required). It works really well and has a nice set of features.
