Create Portable Apps: Tutorial for beginners?

Hi,

can anybody point me to some kind of tutorial how to create a simple portable app?
I know the ApplicationPortableTemplate.nsi but the docs are not made for beginners, are they? Wink

I have a Java application that saves its configuration in UserProfileDir/.appname and I thought this would be a good exercise Wink

Thanks for every help I can get,
Oliver

OK, just found the lines at

OK, just found the lines at the end of the template Wink

My first portable works fine, but I have a question:

What the hell does REDIRECTUSERPROFILE = "TRUE" ???
My app creates a folder in the UserProfileDir, but REDIRECTUSERPROFILE does not help.
!define SETTINGSDIRS "$PROFILE\.foldername" does work, but shouldn't !define REDIRECTUSERPROFILE "TRUE" do the same?

Thanks for any info,

Oliver
