Miranda 0.6 ;)

I know it is a bit early to ask, but will the 0.6 version (released December 29th) be modified as a portable app? This would be so great, because with 0.5.1 I can't establish a File Transfer Connection between the original-ICQ-client users and I hope that this will change with the new version (UPnP).

Many thanks for the great work done so far!

Greetings and best wishes for 2007!

and upx the files optional

additionally you may want to upx all exe and dll files to save some KB. I did so with the miranda 0.6.1 files and everything works fine.

How do I upx the files

How do I upx the files (upx --brute file.exe)? Which files can I upx? *.exe and *.dll?

you can simply start upx

you can simply start upx -*parameters* *.*

upx will decide, if it can handle the file, or not and skip all other files, like *.jpg.

with the following method i pack all files on my portable device:

1. put upx.exe in root directory
2. create a text-file, name it upx.bat and open it for editing
3. my upx.bat:

FOR /R "PortableApps\" %%a IN (*Portable.exe) DO ATTRIB +R "%%a"
ATTRIB +R "PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe"
ATTRIB +R "PortableApps\PortableAppsBackup\PortableAppsBackup.exe"
ATTRIB +R "PortableApps\PortableAppsBackup\PortableAppsBackupRestore.exe"
ATTRIB +R "PortableApps\RSSOwlPortable\App\RSSOwl\rssowl.exe"

FOR /R "PortableApps\" %%a IN (*.exe *.dll *.sys) DO upx.exe --best --compress-icons=0 --nrv2d --crp-ms=999999 "%%a"

FOR /R "PortableApps\" %%a IN (*Portable.exe) DO ATTRIB -R "%%a"
ATTRIB -R "PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe"
ATTRIB -R "PortableApps\PortableAppsBackup\PortableAppsBackup.exe"
ATTRIB -R "PortableApps\PortableAppsBackup\PortableAppsBackupRestore.exe"
ATTRIB -R "PortableApps\RSSOwlPortable\App\RSSOwl\rssowl.exe"

4. explanation: first row sets write protection on all portable launchers by john, because after using upx, they will by corrupted
next lines do the same on special files, same reason
the next "for" line starts upx recursively to all *.exe, *.dll, *.sys and pack them. *.* would also work, but it was to slow for me Smile
and next i remove write protection

i hope you enjoy Smile

As soon as John sends me the source for the splash, I'll get it up on this site.

0.6.5

Hi there..

Will this stil work with 0.6.5, as this version places its profile file at $applicationdata instead of the program directory Sad

mirandaboot.ini

you don't have to replace the mirandaboot.ini

in this file, you can specify the path, where miranda stores the .dat files
