It is [almost] portable as

It is [almost] portable as is. Just...

1. run the installer & copy the entire wxDownloadFast directory to your flash drive
2. copy mingwm10.dll from c:\windows\system32 to the wxDownloadFast directory (on your flash drive)
2. uninstall the original program from your computer

I haven't tested this on other computers but it appears that's all wxDF relies on. I found no registry settings running this setup and wxDF leaves nothing in ApplicationData. The uninstaller deletes the required dll from system32. It appears that at run-time if mingwm10.dll can't be found in system32, wxDF will automatically check (and find it in) the current directory.

damn...

damn...

c:\documents and settings\(user)\wxDownloadFast.ini

edit: launcher... http://kmbb.org/downloads/wxDFast_launcher.exe

This will carry your settings back and forth cleanly.

note: this is a quick hack, the exe is really a compiled batch file which will work with win2000/xp (maybe vista?)
