[Fixed] RedNotebook Portable 1.1.4 leaves files behind

RedNotebook Portable is apparently leaving %USERPROFILE%\webkit\icondatabase\WebpageIcons.db and %USERPROFILE%\.gtk-bookmarks behind when run. We'll need to confirm the exact locations with regshot on Windows XP and then Vista\7 and handle them in the launcher.ini. This change to the RedNotebookPortable.ini file may fix the problem but needs testing:

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=RedNotebook\Rednotebook.exe

[DirectoriesMove]
user=%PAL:AppDir%\RedNotebook\user
 
[FilesMove]
.recently-used.xbel=%USERPROFILE%
gtkfilechooser.ini=%APPDATA%\gtk-2.0
WebpageIcons.db=%USERPROFILE%\webkit\icondatabase

[DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty]
%AppData%\gtk-2.0
%USERPROFILE%\.gtk-bookmarks
%USERPROFILE%\webkit\icondatabase
%USERPROFILE%\webkit

We'll have this fixed for the next release or possibly do a revision in the next few days. In the same release, we'll ensure that the files from the older RedNotebook version are not included in the official RedNotebook Portable release (which unnecessarily added about 10MB to the install size).

I reported that a while back but apparently it slipped through.

Prefix

Ah, it needs the prefix to show up in the bug tracker. We usually add it when someone leaves it off.

DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty
[DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty]
%AppData%\gtk-2.0
%USERPROFILE%\.gtk-bookmarks
%USERPROFILE%\webkit\icondatabase
%USERPROFILE%\webkit

This is in an INI file. That's not valid. At the least, it would need to be

[DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty]
1=%AppData%\gtk-2.0
2=%USERPROFILE%\.gtk-bookmarks
3=%USERPROFILE%\webkit\icondatabase
4=%USERPROFILE%\webkit

Also .gtk-bookmarks is a file, not a folder. Use [FilesMove] (it does contain stuff that can be desired - bookmarks in the file chooser can be used by the user).

Fixed in 1.1.4 Rev 2

This is fixed in 1.1.4 Rev 2. It was bugging me vf2nsr and I was chatting about it with some of the PFC guys, so I figured I'd push this out. I enhanced it to handle journals in alternate locations and portablize the paths as well.

LOCALAPPDATA

That's LOCALAPPDATA\webkit\icondatabase\WebpageIcons.db. Different from the USERPROFILE which was reported originally.

Confusion

As the developer( but not sure for how long) I am confused. Is Portable apps installed on hard drive or on external drive? Appears the files and such are what are normally written to the folders from with in the platform? I do not get any such instance on my systems XP SP3 and 7 home

Maybe I am not reading your report correctly? Maybe I missed something? Maybe I need to get back into the loop?
