Can you make it compatible with "Microsoft Code Studio"?

Yes, I can

Hello, @syspsi

Yes, I can make it, but not only for the MS Code Studio, but for every editor, of course with the known requirements for the folder hierarchy of the currently added ones. My first decision was to use only officially released portable editor/viewers, but why to restrict the users? Let them use what they want. So I add an option for that and remove the currently 'hardcoded'.

I would like to ask how to look in the TotalCommanderPortable.ini file.

Vatiant 1, under the [TotalCommanderPortable] section:

[TotalCommanderPortable]
...
PortableEditor=
PortableExtViewer=

Variant 2, under separated sections:

[PortableEditor]
PortableEditor=

[PortableExtViewer]
PortableExtViewer=

In this case you just must add MyFavorEditorPortable to the PortableEditor= or PortableExtViewer= (i.e. must looks like PortableEditor=MyFavorEditorPortable)

configuration file (wincmd.ini) issue

1st things 1st: Thanks for creating this PortableApss package for Total Commander.

Upon testing this version i found out that the launch parameter(s) somehow are not being "picked up" by Total Commander
So Total Commander will keep on using the configuration file (wincmd.ini) from:

%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Roaming\GHISLER

Instead of using the configuration file (wincmd.ini) at location:

\PortableApps\TotalCommanderPortable\Data\settings

What may be causing this issue? Appreciate your reply.
Regards

Tested with the regular installed version just for having data `%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Roaming\GHISLER` and with the portable one - both are running as expected. I can not reproduce your issue :/

Great Addition!

This is lovely, thank you.

By the way, what do you mean if the Text Editor is in the same folder?
Is it OK if they are all under the same folder like in the default installation case of the suite?
Something like:

- PortableApps
    - TotalCommanderPortable
    - Notepad++Portable
    - gVimPortable
    - etc...

I would phrase it something like:

The Folder hierarchy shroud be:

    - gVimPortable

Update 9.22a to Dev Test 2

Change the abillity to add any editor/viewer in section [Editor] and [ExtViewer] in TotalCommanderPortable.ini file for Editor for F4 and Viewer for F3

Example: PortableEditor=Notepad++Portable

Please, keep in mind that your favorite editor/viewer binary name (w/o extension .exe) and the folder where it lives should always be with the same names, otherwise it will not work.

You need to replace your TotalCommanderPortable.ini with the newest one.

Flexibilize external editor function

Great work! I use and love Total Commander for many many years and finally there is a PA compatible version. Thank you so much. I have just one suggestion regarding the external editor. There are many other potential portable editors. But, the executable exe file doesn't necesserally need to have the same name as its containing folder. This is true, e.g., the portable version of PSPad. But your current solution always resolves the provided name is this: $1\$R0\$R0.exe as can be seen in the file Other\Source\PortableEditorAndExtViewer.nsh. This means, when one configures PortableEditor=PSPadPortable in the TotalCommanderPortable.ini it is resolved to %COMMANDER_PATH%\..\..\..\PSPadPortable\PSPadPortable.exe. It would be more flexible if we were able to configure something like this: PortableEditor=PSPadPortable\pspad.exe. Can you change that?

Alternative way to install total commander

Good effort, please continue.
FYI: I've spot some issues with external editor/viewer settings.
For some reason the settings are removed at the next time I've started TC.
At the moment I've found another way to install TC. I hope it will be useful for someone until this version is in the testing.
1. Please look for tc2usb tool here: https://www.ghisler.com/usbinst.htm
2. Run it with current TC installation and follow instructions.
At the end you will get portable installation of TC and required icons will be in Launch menu as well.

Wrong MD5 sum

@Drazick

Thank you very much for the feedback. I don't know why but the MD5 sum for the downloaded file was different. It is very strange for me because I tested the PAc installer at home and at office PC and everything was good. Whatever, now it is fixed.

Portable Apps.com Launcher issue

Dear rdd,

I installed your version of TC Portable yesterday on my Portable Apps USB stick. With my first attempt it did not accept my wincmd.key placed in the right directory but I could not reproduce the problem after a complete reinstallation in a second attempt. It works now without hassle from the beginning of the second installation.

But what I noted later is the reason for me to write this message. I am a long time user of Total Commander and it is installed on all my computers and running there very often. With this scenario happening and an instance already up I tried to start a second instance of TC from the Portable Apps USB stick which is not possible due to an error message (contained in a small window) claiming to close every already running instance before starting a new one from my stick.

It seems to be a problem within the TC launcher because if two or more of the instances are started either from my computer _or_ from the stick there is no problem at all with more than one TC instance running. If I start TC from the Portable Apps stick and afterwards another one from my computer they do not interfere with each other. The issue happens only if an instance is started on the computer and is already running and I want to 'add' another one from the Portable Apps stick. The error message appears like mentioned above.

Do you have any idea why this happens and maybe even a solution for it?

Regards
Vixavaguba

Possible fix

@Vixavaguba

Hello and thank you very much for your interest and feedback. Until your post I didn't notice about that issue.
Could you please try to add the string SingleAppInstance=false to the \TotalCommanderPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher\TotalCommanderPortable.ini under the section [Launch] and check if this work?

P.S. Sorry for the delay, I work on the portable apps in my free time.

I did so and it works and solves this issue. After the change like mentioned abvoe I started several instances (up to four) either from host or from stick in different orders and even mixed and found no further interferences which prevent a start of an instance. Many thanks for the support. It is maybe an untypical problem but seems to be fixed. I did not notice any further issues by now!

> P.S. Sorry for the delay, I work on the portable apps in my free time.

Of course I did not expect an immediate reaction and could imagine that you are doing an extraordinary job on top of your normal activities.

Best regards and many thanks again

Total Commander error

I have my portable apps on a cloud drive and I get the following error:

Total Commander Portable did not close properly last time it
was run and will now clean up. Please then start Total Commander Portable again manually.

Is there a way to suppress this message? I did add the option to run multiple instances, I forget where I added it.

You need the TotalCommanderPortable.ini from \Other\Source. Copy the file next to the TotalCommanderPortable.exe in main TotalCommanderPortable folder, then add what you need in it. You can also change the default hotkeys in Configuration > Options... > Edit/View in TC app

The Documentation Is Not Clear

Pay attention that on some places you write TotalCommanderPortable.ini and on some TotalCommanderPortableSettings.ini.
It also doesn't mention the need to move the file to the root folder of the application.

Anyhow, I did what you instructed me. I have TotalCommanderPortable.ini next to TotalCommanderPortable.exe with the following content:

[TotalCommanderPortableSettings]
LastDrive=D:
LastDirectory=\Applications\PortableApps\TotalCommanderPortable
[PortableApps.comLauncherLastRunEnvironment]
PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir=D:\Applications

[Editor]
PortableEditor=AkelPadPortable\AkelPadPortable.exe

[ExtViewer]
PortableExtViewer=AkelPadPortable\AkelPadPortable.exe

Indeed the editor (With F4) works and launches AkelPadPortable, yet not for viewing.

External Viewer Are Launched with Alt+F3

OK, There is no issue with the configuration.
The way Total Commander works requires using Alt+F3.

1. It deletes any Editor for F4 and/or Viewer for F3 settings from wincmd.ini IF the sections [Editor] and [ExtViewer] are empty or absent in TotalCommanderPortable.ini
2. It writes the [Editor] and [ExtViewer] paths "%COMMANDER_PATH%......$R0" into the wincmd.ini without double quotation marks which results the Editor or Viewer apps can't start (File not found) IF the path contains any space(s).

We would appreciate if you could fix / workaround this issue!

Correct files and content

Well, it's a bit of a mess... I forgot to ask about the path of the TotalCommanderPortable.ini file, but anyway

The content of TotalCommanderPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher\TotalCommanderPortable.ini must be:

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=totalcmd\TOTALCMD.exe
ProgramExecutable64=totalcmd\TOTALCMD64.exe
CommandLineArguments=/i="%PAL:DataDir%\settings\wincmd.ini" /f="%PAL:DataDir%\settings\wcx_ftp.ini"
SingleAppInstance=false
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SupportsUNC=yes

[DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty]
1=%PAL:DataDir%\Temp

Then you must copy TotalCommanderPortable.ini from TotalCommanderPortable\Other\Source\ and paste it in the TotalCommanderPortable directory (next to TotalCommanderPortable.exe)

And the new content of TotalCommanderPortable\TotalCommanderPortable.ini should be:

[TotalCommanderPortable]
AdditionalParameters=
DisableSplashScreen=true
RunLocally=false

[Editor]
PortableEditor=Notepad++_Portable\Notepad++Portable.exe

[ExtViewer]
PortableExtViewer=AkelPadPortable\AkelPadPortable.exe

In TotalCommanderPortable\Other\Source\Readme.txt we can read:

USER CONFIGURATION
==================

Some configuration in the PortableApps.com Launcher can be overridden by the
user in an INI file next to TotalCommanderPortable.exe called
TotalCommanderPortable.ini. If you are happy with the default options, it is
not necessary, though. There is an example INI included with this package to
get you started. To use it, copy AppNamePortable.ini from this directory to
TotalCommanderPortable.ini next to TotalCommanderPortable.exe. The options in
the INI file are as follows:

Macro: 'PortableEditorAndExtViewer'

Thank you very much for looking into this!

Please note my config and the suggested config are the same regarding the sections of [Editor] and [ExtViewer].

The issue roots in the PortableEditorAndExtViewer.nsh macro which doesn't use double quotation marks ("") to resolve any space chars in the %COMMANDER_PATH% variable when it writes the path of [Editor] and [ExtViewer] into the wincmd.ini. I.e. if the %COMMANDER_PATH% includes space characters then the program can't find the configured [Editor] or [ExtViewer], so it ends in a 'File not found!' error.

The current macro writes this to the wincmd.ini:

Editor=%COMMANDER_PATH%\..\..\..\Notepad++_Portable\Notepad++Portable.exe
Viewer=%COMMANDER_PATH%\..\..\..\AkelPadPortable\AkelPadPortable.exe

To make the config work (with space chars in %COMMANDER_PATH%), the macro might want to write this to the wincmd.ini:

Editor=""%COMMANDER_PATH%\..\..\..\Notepad++_Portable\Notepad++Portable.exe""
Viewer=""%COMMANDER_PATH%\..\..\..\AkelPadPortable\AkelPadPortable.exe""

Please note the difference with the double quotation marks.

Thank you!

Steps to reproduce

Can you provide me the steps how to reproduce the issue, because I can't or I don't know how. I try with E:\path with space\TotalCommanderPortable and E:\path with space\Notepad++_Portable and the content of E:\path with space\TotalCommanderPortable\TotalCommanderPortable.ini is

[Editor]
PortableEditor=Notepad++_Portable\Notepad++Portable.exe

[ExtViewer]
PortableExtViewer=Notepad++_Portable\Notepad++Portable.exe

but I don't get any errors and everything work as expected.

Confirmed on My System

Indeed it also doesn't work on my system
I guess the file is changed on the publisher of TotalCommander without a version bump.

Confirm and fixed

@michelb Please be more specific exactly which SHA256 checksum is wrong

@Drazick You are right! The installer is changed by the publisher. The old digital signature is from 02.08.2023 but new one is from 03.08.2023. Thats return different SHA256. Thank you very much!

Update Total Commander Portable to 11.00 Dev Test 2
  • Fixed wrong SHA256 sum in installer.ini
  • Added DirUsageLocation=2 to the wincmd.ini to keep the tcDirFrq.txt in same folder as wincmd.ini. Existing user must add it manually or use menu Configuration > Options > History > Storage location for list of most frequently used folders: and select Same folder as wincmd.ini from the dropdown

Thank You

This is a great portable application.

Any chance you wrap CudaText (https://portableapps.com/node/69551) as well?
It will be the perfect text editor with Total Commander as it is instant to load while being very powerful (Sublime Text style).

Not by me

Hello, @Drazick,
My favorite and daily used text editor is Notepad++. I only maintain applications that I personally use. I would love it if you could get involved with CudaText support Smile
