Test of Open Hardware Monitor Portable 0.5.1 Dev Test 1

I installed, ran, and uninstalled Open Hardware Monitor Portable 0.5.1 Dev Test 1.

For this test, I did a regshot before installing, but I also uninstalled the program before performing the second regshot; I normally do the second regshot without an uninstall. I don't know if that affected the results.

1st RegShot

Run OpenHardwareMonitorPortable_0.5.1_Dev_Test_1_English.paf.exe

Open OpenHardwareMonitor

Save Report to My Documents on C: drive

Close OpenHardwareMonitor

Right-click on icon and uninstall from PA.c platform

2nd RegShot

There are quite a few entries in the Regshot that look unfamiliar to me, and there are some files left in an 'OpenHardwareMonitor' directory on the C drive:

Don't think those files are

Don't think those files are directly from this app. They look more to me like they are from Windows Management Instrumentation which is Microsoft's web-based enterprise management system (thus the acronym wbem everywhere there).

Regarding your RegShotting, PortableApps installers don't make any changes to your local filesystem or registry apart from what other apps or Windows itself records about it (unless you are installing the app to the local filesystem, then of course you will get the app's folders and files as changes).

Taking a first shot before/after installation and a second shot before/after uninstallation will make no difference regarding the changes the app will make.

It is actually better to take the first shot after installing and the second shot before uninstalling, as this limits the possibility for stuff to end up in your log that is not important for portability.

wbem

It was the WBEM stuff that was the most interesting/different from what I've seen before.

And, I'm glad to hear that about the install/uninstall process.
