PortableApps.com AppCompactor

PortableApps.com AppCompactor re-compiled with Unicode NSIS, has been added !

I did not make any modifications to the .nsi script other then converting it to UTF-16LE, to sort out the '®' issue!
As well I modified the appinfo.ini to show it's a development test, meet the latest PortableApps.comInstaller specifications and added the appicon_16/32.png files.

Although I do not have much experience in using the AppCompactor, I've tested this running from a path with unicode characters and compacting an app in a path with unicode characters.
Without issues !

Looks like there's a bug in the registry plugin still. Maxima Portable seems to leave behind registry keys on XP SP2 still.

Unicode NSIS 2.46 Released!

Unicode NSIS 2.46 is now officially released. There are no binary changes between RC2 and the final release. The changes are in the language files for the new African languages.

Just letting you know, the

Just letting you know, the crash in the launcher affects Unicode NSIS. (Basically, it's a bug that affects Windows 7 / Windows Vista users). I'm still helping Chris fix a few things with language switching, but when that's all settled can you update to the tip (that is, if Chris doesn't put out an RC right after)?

Done!

Updated

Included a fix for TrimWhite.nsh, but I don't consider the language an issue for Unicode NSIS.

Status update

Here's a status update concerning Unicode NSIS Portable.

Release is just awaiting the updated registry plug-in Gringoloco has been working on to take care of importing without using regedit.exe, which is somewhat buggy in Wine and doesn't work properly with Wine 1.0. It's going very well and works great in Wine Smile

As for the branding, John, I got the current branding for NSIS Portable to display properly on this monitor by shrinking it from 54/55px (the images were 55px but in the HTML it was set to 54px..?) to 50px.

I am a Christian and a developer and moderator here.

Updated to include the new Registry plug-in.

See release notes!

[edit: To make full use of the new Registry plug-in you'll need to update PAL with the latest HG-tip]

So this fixes all known registry issues? (i.e. XP SP2 with Maxima Portable, etc.)

No.

No, but we're just about done with it. Working live in IRC now.

I've got everything updated on ChrisMorgan's server.

But still I'm a bit confused here and will wait for you to return from gym !

My confusion is about the current scripts, for example 7ZipPortable:

	RestoreTheKey:
		IfFileExists "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\7zip_portable.reg" "" LaunchNow
	
		IfFileExists "$WINDIR\system32\reg.exe" "" RestoreTheKey9x
			nsExec::ExecToStack `"$WINDIR\system32\reg.exe" import "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\7zip_portable.reg"`
			Pop $R0
			StrCmp $R0 '0' LaunchNow ;successfully restored key

	RestoreTheKey9x:
		${registry::RestoreKey} "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\7zip_portable.reg" $R0
		StrCmp $R0 '0' LaunchNow ;successfully restored key
		StrCpy $FAILEDTORESTOREKEY "true"
	

Wouldn't the above all ready do what we need if using the earlier macro setup, without any need of modifying the current launchers?

If we would implement the earlier discussed macro, you'll probably have to modify all of the current scripts !

Correct

The last change I made will require no modification of existing launchers (it just causes some duplicate code). We'll be modifying them to simplify things, though.
