Hi I'm just thinking of creating something let's call it a "Portable Application Creator" based on NSIS.
This should be an installer that contains the Portable Launcher and it's sources.
It should create the necessary directory structure whereever you want.
It also copies the files necessary for the application into the appropriate directory.
This means: The user would have to install/download the application and extract it. Then he should provide the base directory to the creator. Thena ll fiel should be copied together with the portable launcher into a predefined directory structure.
My intention is to create something that could be used for all applications. Also for commercial ones for which distirbution is normally not allowed (of course each user has to respect the licence given by it).
Also an advantage would be that developers of portable applications do not have to care for each update of the bas software and each user could use the most actual version he downloaded somewhere himself.
The user would not have to wait for an update to the portable application to occur.
My question to you guys. Do you think there would be need or usage for that (before I start developing)? Please tell me your opinions
