Azureus Portable

For this release i'm going to pretend that every computer has java. (From my experience almost all do, so the java crutch doesn't bother me.)

I put together a portable version of Azureus 2.5.0.0 with the advanced statistics plugin pre-installed. I used a compiled batch file rather than NSIS, which will work (in theory) on WinNT/2k and XP. It might work on Vista-- if a Vista user could test this compatibility that would be great.

Anyway...

Actually

Java apps are portable as long as you have the JRE.
After talking with a Java software developer, I have found out that Java apps cannot write to the registry.

U can!

You can write the reg with java.
And that developer is not a developer Smile
So be carefull before takeing for granted something.

Here is the code for java

import java.util.prefs.*;

public class winReg {
Preferences prefs;
String defaultValue = "NA";
String InstalledDate ="",version="";
public static void main(String[] args)
{
com.kanad.reg.winReg wr=new com.kanad.reg.winReg();
wr.setValue();
wr.getValue();
}
winReg()
{
try
{
//HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs
//HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs
prefs= Preferences.userNodeForPackage(com.kanad.reg.winReg.class);//HKEY_CURRENT_USER
// prefs= Preferences.systemNodeForPackage(com.kanad.reg.winReg.class);//HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
}
catch (Exception E)
{
System.out.println(E);
}

}//winReg
public void setValue()
{
try
{
prefs.put("Installed",new java.util.Date().toString());
prefs.put("Version","1.0.0");
}
catch (Exception E)
{
System.out.println(E);
}
}
public void getValue()
{
try
{
InstalledDate = prefs.get("Installed", defaultValue);
version= prefs.get("Version", defaultValue);
System.out.println("Installed "+InstalledDate+"\nVersion "+version);
prefs.flush();
}
catch (Exception E)
{
System.out.println(E);
}
}
}

Progress?

Has there been any progress on this? I've been using azureus, except not truly portable (leaving registry changes, that kind of thing) for a while now and this would certainly be helpful...

INFECTED WITH TROJAN HORSE

DO NOT USE

Just tested this on Vista and it comes up as a Trojan Horse Agent KX

Not cool, hope most of these beta apps are not infected Sad

I just scanned the contents of the Azureus Portable zip file...

...linked to in the first post with the ClamWin Portable software available on this website with a fresh signature update and got zero hits on the files in that zip file (no trojans/malware/virii noted).

Since no one can confirm that they're all using/scanning the same zip file since it could be changed easily, proceed with caution..."buyer beware".

Sorry, I can not accept

Sorry, I can not accept credit for the creation of "open source malware apps". All I can say is there is nothing _in any way_ illegitimate about this program. It is completely open source, so you can see for yourself. I've been using this myself since I created it, and I run an extremely secure virus/spyware free system. Don't believe me? Don't download it. It'll save me bandwidth.

I see now why John gets

I see now why John gets agitated with these virus scanners sometimes. I just looked at my server logs and this file is downloaded about 200 times per day. It has also been posted for over 3 months now. So after roughly 18,000 downloads of a supposedly virus laden program, not one person has taken the time to post a comment like, "Hey don't download this program, it ruined my computer." I'm glad to see people using their virus scanners before recklessly downloading and runnings programs, but I'm telling you these are false positives.

vamp1r did not create a

vamp1r did not create a virus laden app, many virus scanners detect certain components of ANY p2p and torrent download client as malware because most p2p and torrent programs monitor the system for media files or other files that can be shared through that program. While it is monitoring the system, it does not, in any way, infect the users computer with a virus, spyware or other malware
