Opera@USB PAM Dev Help

hey all,

ok i love opera, niff niff with firefox, and hate IE. Ive got FF portable on my PAM, however i just found Opera@usb which id rather use.

now to get to my point;
Im a noob developer (well worst than that, ive never developed before! i dont know anything botu scripting but i have written html and interpretted php before, which makes it easy for me to understand code...) so i need some help.

now to actually get to my point (i hope);
Ive got the XAMPP launcher for PAM, ive edited it with ease to apply to opera@usb, however, as i said about me being a noob, i dont know how to build that damn thing!

can anyone tell me how to build !? or build it for me?

im running winxp sp2.

thanks

I can't answer your question

I can't answer your question because I'm not a programmer, but I can tell you that dispite the fact that Opera@usb has not been "prepared" for use in this menu program, I have been able to use it.
I just put the Opera files in the App directory of the PAM program on the Flash drive. Then clicked on the Options in the menu and had it Update.

It saw Opera immediately and lists it in the menu. Opera starts up with no problem.

I would suggest that when using Opera on a USB drive one should change the cashe to nothing and delete on exit and delete cookies on exit. That should only leave some empty dir on any foreign computer one ends up using the drive on.

I do hope you succeed in your project, however. But in the meantime, you can enjoy Opera On-The-Go. Like you, I do love it!

The launchers here are

The launchers here are NSIS.
You need to download and install NSIS to compile (build) the exe.
You can also use NSIS Portable
