Please Test!
Nemp has so many options (and entries in its config file) that I probably overlooked something.

Some notes:
I did not find a way to disable the wizard on first run. DefaultData does not work for that because it seems to be too slow. (I'll open up a separate topic for that.)
The base app works somewhat arbitrary. It keeps track of what folders were selected (for Webradio downloads f.i.) and uses them an a subsequent launch, even if the app is deleted and reinstalled in between.

Don't put it in the Program Files folder. The base app will detect that and stop working in portable mode.

While Nemp itself is licensed under the GPL, some of its components are not. It uses the bass library, that is freeware only for personal use and otherwise shareware. Hence the online installer.

2 things

first, I suggest calling it Data\NempData because it's better than Data\Data. Second, you can get rid of the Wizard by first running the app without the apps settings saved, then when the wizard comes up, set it up like you want to in the portable version (such as disabling checking for updates), then exit the app. Then go to Data\Data\Nemp.ini and copy that file into DefaultData\Data. That will get rid of the wizard for you.

EDIT: Also, HKCU\Software\ATI\ACE\Settings\ADL\MaxCofuncPaths and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MCD is created when you run the app.

Thanks for testing.
I have set up a DefaultData here on my end, but left it out in Dev Test 1 because it did not work (maybe a bug with DirectoriesMove related to what prapper found out here. I'll put up another Dev Test, once I find out to exclude certain paths from an online installer package.

I did not get the first reg key on my end and the second seems to be windows "background noise". It seems to be related to the OpenGL Mini driver. Maybe that is the cause for the first one, too. Do you use an ATI graphics adapter?

pshh I don't know

It's a library computer Blum

I've retested it and gotten the same two keys. What caused them is anyone's guess, but what I can say for sure is that they are not there before opening the app. And they're there when I take a second regshot.

Also, your language switching isn't working right. The first time you run it, it's in German, and it never defaults to English or German, just what you had last.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

-edit-
Did you use Dev Test 2 or Dev Test 1? The first one had several issues with the preset settings in DefaultData.
I checked it, and language switching works here on my end, at least as I expected. It takes the language from the platform if that option is checked or it keeps the last setting if run standalone. It just has these two languages (en/de). I found one quirk, though. I defaulted the language to german on first run if used standalone (it is set in the nemp.ini in DefaultData). I'll change that to english in the next Dev Test.

The registry keys seem to be related to the OpenGL minidriver (MCD) as Nemp uses OpenGL for coverflow. I consider them noise.

Dev Test 2

I ran it outside the platform. I thought that PAL defaulted the language to English when run outside the platform. So I guess the only problem was that you had the default language as German.

Updated to Dev Test 2

See release notes for changes. I finally convinced the wizard to keep quite.

Updated to 4.3.0 Dev Test 1

See release notes for changes. The app now defaults to english language if launched standalone the first time (see Pyromaniacs comment). You may have to delete the nemp.ini in Data\Data\ to get the fix initial language automatically. Attention: you loose all settings made until now if you do. As alternative you could simple set the language through the menu (Einstellungen => Languages).
Launching through the PA.c Menu with automatic language switching was not affected. It still only supports english and german.

Sorry for the long update delay, I was very short of spare time the last weeks.

I stopped updating this

I stopped updating this simply because of low interest (27 downloads this year to date). If anyone wants to take over - feel free to do so.

Useful?

How useful is this compared to CoolPlayer+? If it is, we could push this as official which would gain some users. Though we would have to self host since this uses freeware components (BASS).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Compared to CoolPlayer+ it's

Compared to CoolPlayer+ it's a feature beast with cover flow, simple tag editing, full-fledged media library and an own web server for remote control. It has some similarities to foobar2000. The GUI follows its own philosophy, feels a bit cumbersome at first but has some nice shortcuts. I used it as a party player occasionally.
I can review this the next week when I have holidays. I recall the settings handling a bit problematic. And I think I did not test the web server so it may leave things behind.

Update

I did a quick update for 4.6.2.
This has to be tested on WinXP (can do it this afternoon) for its new skin-options. And I just found out, I forgot to update the template. Will push out a 2nd dev test later.
-edit-
done

¿MinOS=XP?

Why have you set Windows XP as the minimum OS requirement?
Nemp's homepage lists compatibility with "Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows7". I don't have a Windows NT machine handy at the moment, but I tested 4.6.2 DevTest 2 earlier today on a Windows 2000 SP4 VM (with MinOS=XP removed) and it runs quite well.

I don't know anymore. Maybe I

I don't know anymore. Maybe I set it when I was troubleshooting the problems with the wizzard and writing to the nemp.ini and simply forgot to revert it. I'll keep it in mind for a future dev test.
