Thanks to Pyromaniac for the previous work on a Google Earth Portable project

Warning!!!
There is no version from Google called 'Rolling', it is called by me.
From v.7.3.1.4505 Google start to release the new versions with same filename.
In 'rolling' version the MD5 checking is removed. This allows to download the latest v7.3.1.
In this case I can't guarantee that the next time you will get the current version 7.3.1.4507 and that is it will work or not.
Use it at your own risk!
I suggest you to use v7.3.0.3832 Dev Test 1 as 'stable'

Release Notes:

7.3.1.4507 Dev Test 1 (2018-02-13): Update base app, x64 removed due to registry problems, release this as 'Rolling' release
7.3.1.4505 Dev Test 1 (2018-02-06): Update base app
7.3.0.3832 Dev Test 1 (2018-01-07): Initial release

Updated Google Earth Pro Portable 7.3.1.4505 Dev Test 1

Update base app

I need help for the registry. On a computer with disabled UAC (Win7 Pro for example) the x64 version of Google Earth Pro leaves data in HKLM\Software\Google\ that I can not clear\backup\handle or remove. There is no problem with the data in HKCU\Software\Google\.

If the UAC is enabled, the data is stored only in HKCU\Software\Google\ and not in HKLM\Software\Google\

Another thing is with x32 version. With enabled or disabled UAC it store data only in HKCU\Software\Google\ and when exit the app it create reg file from HKLM\Software\Google\

I don't know where is the problem and how to solved it at now.

please, excuse my bad english

Could be UAC

It could be due to UAC. HKLM requires admin rights. I'm not sure if turning off UAC automatically grants admin rights to processes or if they still need to ask for it. Since the launcher is not asking for admin rights, writes to HKLM would fail in that case. The only way around this would be to write custom code to detect that UAC is disabled and then get admin rights for the launcher process.

Note that we don't test anything we do for UAC being disabled. Apps, tools, platform, etc should work, but I can't speak to it either way and we're unlikely to ever specifically test for it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

First time trying to install

First time trying to install this (since they did away with panaramio and my old GE doesn't work). Getting a copy not valid error upon install after GEP seems to download a couple times. Went to Github and the version 7.3.0.3832_Dev_Test_1 installed but 7.3.1.4505 wouldn't. Where do we copy the GoogleEarthProPortable.ini file FROM to enable caching? Thanks

Different versions with same file name

This is because from v7.3.1.4505 Google start to release the new versions with same filenames, i.e. v7.3.1.4505 and v7.3.1.4507 are released both with 'googleearthprowin-7.3.1.exe' filename. For v7.3.1.4505 the MD5 checksum is '82eeb52d1cff598c96f51db7cf34b05d' and for v7.3.1.4507 it is 'b2b90257e739a54548e152d1614e48d1'. The installer expect to get the '82eeb52d1cff598c96f51db7cf34b05d'. This is why it is downloaded but not installed.

To partially solve this problem, I remove the checking for MD5 sums, but this is a knife with two blades. In one case you can download all the googleearthprowin-7.3.1.exe filenames, but this can't guarantee that the installer will deal properly with the extracted files of the latest version. You can see for them in the source code. May be Google don't want to use the Earth as portable app, I don't know, I can only suppose. Another way is to repackeg, but this is against the rules and license agreement and I will not doing this. I hope you can understand all this drama.

For the chache support: the 'GoogleEarthProPortable.ini' is in the 'GoogleEarthProPortable\Other\Source' folder.
