Clean so far.

I did a quick test and it worked well. No traces as expected. The help is quite large, but that is by design. As stated here a new version of the help file is available.
I took a look at your launcher.ini and apart from removing the comment you could consider adding WaitForProgram=false since the program seems to be designed not to leave any traces and nothing needs to be moved/cleaned up after launch.

Thanks,
dj

I've got a question:

OpenPuff has now reached Development Test4,
how long will it take before it will be released
as an application?

INI cleanup

First, if the base app is English only, you should mark it as such.

In AppInfo.ini, you can drop the [Details]:Trademarks entry, as it's empty.

Installer.ini:

Within the optional [Languages] section:

Each entry is used to specify whether that language is available as a user is installing the portable app and appinfo.ini is set to Multilingual. If this section is omitted, all languages are included. If this section is included, ENGLISH= is required. All other languages are optional and default to false.

Now, the PA.c DevTK report:

PortableApps.com Format validation failed with 1 error and 3 warnings.

Errors

  • appinfo.ini: [License]:EULAVersion is defined but neither Other\Source\EULA.rtf nor Other\Source\EULA.txt exists

Warnings

  • appinfo.ini: [SpecialPaths]:Plugins should be omitted if set to NONE
  • appinfo.ini: [Dependencies]:UsesJava should be omitted if set to false
  • appinfo.ini: [Dependencies]:UsesDotNetVersion should be omitted if empty

Previously known as kAlug.

Tell me!

kAlug In AppInfo.ini, you can drop the [Details]:Trademarks entry, as it's empty.

Please tell me of things like this. That should be made to come up in the PADT report. (I've added support for this so if you used the hg tip you'd now get this included in the report.)

PA.c Format Errors

kAlug,

Yes, I've been working through all of my Development Tests over the last couple of days using the validation module in Chris's very useful Development Toolkit and have also picked up on my format errors. Updates to follow as soon as I can get them uploaded.

On the 'Language' issue, there are help files/manuals in both English and Italian, so technically it could be described as Multilingual, but as these are PDF files which aren't accessed from within the program, I will be reclassifying the installer as 'English'.

Thanks for looking at this. Very much appreciated.

Are you still working on this?

Mjashby, are you still doing this? If not, do you mind if I post the v4.00 PAF I made for this, using the installer? Just let me know, ok? I don't want to step on anyone's toes... Smile
