not quite perfect...

Has the same issue as Arduino 2.1.1, where it creates a directory in %HOMEPATH% called .vscode, that i can only copy... it reverts to default settings upon opening the program again.

Any help is appreciated. Smile

My modified launcher ini

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=x86\Code.exe
ProgramExecutable64=x64\Code.exe
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SupportsUNC=yes

[Activate]
Java=find
XML=true
Registry=true

[RegistryKeys]
-=HKCU\Software\Classes\vscode

[DirectoriesMove]
Code=%APPDATA%\Code
.vscode=%USERPROFILE%\.vscode

[DirectoriesCleanupForce]
;1=%APPDATA%\Code

You have already a DirectoriesMove on %APPDATA%\Code. If you force delete %APPDATA%\Code means that you want to delete the local one.

Try this

There are several ways to make it portable (check the forum), but after a simple search in internet for visual studio code portable we can find this https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/portable#_enable-portable-mode, so let's use them.

\VSCodePortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher\VSCodePortable.ini

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=x86\Code.exe
ProgramExecutable64=x64\Code.exe
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SupportsUNC=yes
CleanTemp=false

[Activate]
Registry=true
Java=find
XML=true

[RegistryKeys]
-=HKCU\Software\Classes\vscode

[DirectoriesMove]
Code=%FullAppDir%\data
settings\.vscode=%USERPROFILE%\.vscode

And because there are x64 and x86 version, you may wish to transfer the data folder between them. For this you will need a custom code > https://portableapps.com/manuals/PortableApps.comLauncher/topics/64-bit....

\VSCodePortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher\Custom.nsh

${SegmentFile}

${SegmentInit}
${If} $Bits = 64
${SetEnvironmentVariablesPath} FullAppDir "$EXEDIR\App\x64"
${Else}
${SetEnvironmentVariablesPath} FullAppDir "$EXEDIR\App\x86"
${EndIf}
!macroend

After that you must re-build the launcher again because of the Custom.nsh.
Also, please note that Visual Studio Code is a trademark > https://portableapps.com/comment/235595#comment-235595

Note: use %USERPROFILE% instead of %HOMEPATH%
Note2: there is no need of installer.ini if you use both x64 and x86

ok

good call on the %userprofile% thing. and i am using the installer.ini to preserve directories between installs. and i chose to leave project transfers up to users. might change in the future.

as for the trademark... what would i have to change?

The name

Change the name. For example ccPortable is CCleaner, rcvPortable is Recuva, zmPortable is Zoom. Also I'm not sure about bundling. Read the license, if it allow it, if not - then provide online installer.

Big Update

Update base app to 1.81.1
Turns out there is actually a portable mode in vs code, and i released the first version without knowing this. This version is done properly, incorporating a couple of fixes suggested in the comments. Enjoy. Smile

Someone is attempting it here:

https://portableapps.com/node/68350

I might end up repackaging it in proper format... They don't seem to be following the standard of the site.

Yes, please repack it. I

Yes, please repack it. I really want a proper .paf.exe instead of a 7zip, as I replied to the OP in that topic.
