.NET: first impressions

The .NET one works fine, although not entirely self-contained/portable: it looks to me that it places the profile information somewhere on the HDD, but no matter how much I've looked, I just couldn't find where. Maybe the registry?

Think not.

I've included all possible static folders into the portabilization. So, it must carry your data with you.

Well, I'll keep testing,

Well, I'll keep testing, though others may want to confirm my findings. Will keep you posted.

Remote GUI (i.e. "the other one")

This one (also) places files on the HDD, but this time I did manage to find it: in Win7 x64 it's this folder: "C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Transmission Remote GUI". There it places the profile file (transgui.ini) plus the GeoIP and flags databases, plus a "run" file while running. See if you can "portabilize" this one as well please.

Many thanks, and keep up the good work!

I am not sure I understand

I am not sure I understand what you're saying: are you saying that Angel this is normal behavior for the portabilized application, i.e. to place permanent data on the hard drive, or (b) the code fragment that you've displayed proves that there should be no data on the HDD, but something goes wrong either with (b1) the portabilized application itself (in which case it may need some further fine tuning), or (b2) just in my particular case (in which case I may be doing something wrong)? Care to elaborate a bit?

Anyone else can con/infirm that there's data placed on the HDD that shouldn't be there? Or is it that I am doing something wrong? C'mon folks, please test! In my particular case (Win7 X64) the portabilized application builds a folder of permanent data on the hard drive--that's a fact. On the other hand, the "Transmission Remote GUI" folder from the PortableApps is empty.

Many thanks for your work!

Yeah, A] Is right : when you

Yeah, A] Is right : when you portabilize an app, you allow it to move the local content to a folder that will be back after closing, so it includes the app's folders that are moved from the Data folder, to the normal Appdata folder, as this app was static, but it's temporary.

B} Don't know, I need feedback in order to know what's wrong. Try changing options after you launched it, for example downloading GeoIP database, and close after the app. The Data folder won't be empty after this.

You want me to add this to the Unofficial .NET List?

.Net vs GUI

Considering the larger file size and .Net dependency, is there any advantage to using the .Net version as opposed to the non .Net version? And shouldn't they be listed in separate topics?

.NET is richer

The .NET client has some features that the other one doesn't (yet).

And yes, other than an unfortunate name similarity, there's no real connection between these two, so I guess they do belong to different categories.

.net apps probably won't be

.net apps probably won't be released anytime soon, though I am working on transmission myself but not the daemon, the one I'm building is their qt gui they have besides the gtk one
