I would like to submit/say - for what it is worth -
that "portable" apps should NOT write to registry!
Writing to the registry defeats the whole purpose/design of "portable" apps!
How many PA.com "portable" apps (now) write to the registry?
Does anyone have any idea?
Far too many PA.com apps (now) write to the registry - in my opinion.
PA.com should flag/point-out/specify apps that write to the registry!
I have been using PA.com µTorrent for years.
I download/"install" the µT PAF to a temp directory on my f drive,
then copy the files to the actual portable/"install" directory on my c drive,
and also then copy the files to my other laptops.
µTorrent (18.104.22.168082) now writes to the registry that it has been "installed"
and µTorrent shows up in my Windows list of installed software!
I guess µTorrent is (now) configured to write to the regsitry
when executed/launched? THAT IS RIDICULOUS!
