QRemoteControl-Server Portable 2.4.1 Dev Test 1

Application: QRemoteControl-Server
Category: Utilities
Description: This is the server part of QRemoteControl. With QRemoteControl installed on your Smartphone you can easily control your computer via WiFi. By using the touchpad of your Phone you can for example open the internet browser and navigate to the pages you want to visit, use the music player or your media center without being next to your PC or laptop. Summurazing QRemoteControl allows you to do almost everything you would be able to do with a mouse and a keyboard, but also from a greater distance.
To make these replacements possible QRemoteControl offers you a touchpad, a keyboard, multimedia keys and buttons for starting applications.
Even powering on the computer via Wake On Lan is supported by this app.

Couple of comments

1) You can remove the "settings" folder from App. It appears to be a holdover from prior testing.

2) When the program is launched, there is no indication that it is running, either in the taskbar, system tray, or task manager. Does the program require administrative rights to run? If so, you'll need to add RunAsAdmin under the Launch section of the launcher.ini file.

Otherwise, the package format seems correct.

Comments on Update

The program now runs properly on first try, and everything looks fine from a format perspective. Whatever changes were made seems to have fixed the problems from the first test. I hope that someone who owns the companion remote smartphone software can test that functionality, but from purely the desktop perspective, it's fine. Good luck for getting people to test and I hope this goes official for you.

Addition: Just a quick note to update the release log and change the 2023 to 2013. Cheers.

Has anyone tested it with

Has anyone tested it with Windows 8? One user reported a an error message telling that SSL-libraries are missing, I'm not sure whether this was system specific or if this is a general error related to Windows 8.

And another question, how can I release this application to PortableApps.com if all works out?

Regarding official release...

While QRemoteControl Server is open source and thus is considered acceptable for release here, it is completely useless without QRemoteControl which at least on Android I can see is payware.

The fact that you would be earning money from the additional exposure an official release here would give you while PortableApps gains nothing may be an issue.

You would be best to contact the business development email address on the contact page to work something out.
