I've been able to get Wings3D (an amazing 3D modelling package found at http://www.wings3d.com/) to fully run on my USB drive with no connection to the underlying OS, EXCEPT for a single .ini file that contains 2 absolute paths to folders in the application (all the way from the drive root).
Obviously, by simply editing the .ini the app will run, but each time it is ran, the .ini file has to somehow be edited to be pointed to the correct directory.
This is my first attempt at creating a portable app, can the portable app template handle this kind of replacement in an .ini file?
From what I take it, when you run an app from this site, actually you're running the launcher. The launcher looks at where the USB drive is currently running and updates the underlying application's .ini files and then actually starts the app, correct?
If so, do I need to compile the .exe myself for the launcher?
I've read the beginners guide on the site and it doesn't go into this kind of detail...any help is appreciated.
