CDisplayEx Portable 1.4_PRE-RELEASE5 (TESTERS NEEDED) - March 15, 2008

This is not really my work, I have just sort of been the general contractor on this.

What: "CDisplayEx is a Comic reader based on CDisplay. It uses the popular 7-zip plugins to read many archives types like cbr cbz cbt rar zip tar 7z lzh arj cab tar.gz tar.bz2. It supports jpeg png gif and bmp images."
Where: CDisplayEx 1.4 Developed by Henri Gourvest
Size: About 1.7Mb (2.54Mb installed)
Download CDisplayEx Portable 1.4 PR5 (hosted by cubegames.net) or here PR4. (Mirrored by Patrick at the nascent-project.org). Thanks.

Many thanks to Patrick, Ryan and NeoRame for their help so far.

I use CDisplayEx to read comics which have been loaded into a cbr or cbz format.

To Do:

  • Read Me
  • Reset settings file so that it opens windowed-Done
  • Remove CDispShell.dll
  • Remove regthumbs.bat
  • Version in app name (0.1) for portable version
  • PA.com branded splash screen

UPDATE Sept 21, 2007:
I am going to call this RC1 because I think it is about done. I don't know if anyone else had downloaded and had any issues with it. According to the dev this should do it. There should not be any issues. (Famous last words). Many, many, many thanks to Patrick.

UPDATE Sept 24, 2007:
Added a 7z/exe version of the corrected RC1.
You can use it to extract directly to your PortableApps folder or to anywhere on your usb drive you desire.

UPDATE Sept 27, 2007:
Was able UPX the main exe and dll's(most). Reduced size down from 4.5Mb to 2.54Mb installed.

UPDATE Oct 3, 2007:
Created a help-html files based on the Tick5 Portable Help template.

UPDATE Oct 4, 2007
Added ini to pkg see post below for structure. Please review.
Added new readme.txt in Other\Source please review for language.
Added page on my site(cubegames.net) for install instructions and screenshots.

UPDATE Mar 15, 2008
"IT'S ALIVE!!!", (Dr. F.N.Stien 1765-1818)

Changelog:

Now see,

I thot that's what the modified XML was, that it ran it windowed, but then it didn't for me. Maybe I accidently used the wrong one. I will update the installer now. Edit, the settings keep getting overwritten for me. Do they for you? I'll look into this.

Alright I got it, I went one directory extra when copying the default settings, BETA2 is uploading, just change it to that in the file name, should be done in a couple.

Okay, it's uploaded

The Installer

It should be covered by the license.txt in the source directory it's in. And you can remove the replace settings thing too, it should be windowed by default with the update.

Well...

The launcher it currently covered by the GNU GPL "license.txt" as well. The actual program seems to have to license included, but I think it only needs to be included with the source. I think you have the MPL posted up there? Is that for the launcher? I think GPL's fine, and I dunno for sure if you can change the GPL to MPL.

The license is listed at sourceforge as MPL 1.1. You can also see it in the about window. No readme or license.txt.

Anyway, should be compatible. Technically, they are 2 different pieces of software just bundled together, so it works. Same with my RSSOwl Portable, which is licensed under the Eclipse Public License.

Anyway, the special names are not to do with the license, but to do with Mozilla's trademarks.

Please add the readme to the folder \CDisplayExPortable\App\CDisplayEx.

According to Ryan via GTalk we should add it there.

Thanks.

Message from the original dev.

You should not provide the shell extension!!
1 - There is possible conflict with already installed version.
2 - you will not be able to disconnect safely the key because the dll will be probably in use.

Yes this dll and .bat files are not needed, CDisplayEx can work without it.
This dll is a windows explorer plugin to display the first picture of a .cbz or .cbr file in thumbnail view, it is very usefull but not portable!
I like the splach screen and the new icon.
Using upx to pack the exe file could be great.

-Henri Gourvest

He is referring to the CDispShell.dll and regthumbs.bat files in PortableApps\CDisplayExPortable\App\CDisplayEx. He mentioned this in this post. I told him we(Patrick) would fix it in the next release.

1 more thing Patrick

When you recompile can you name the new file CDisplayExPE_0.1_BETA3.paf.exe.

We can change the file name to 1.0 when we finalize things.

The file name might be confusing because it is actually based on CDiaplayEx V1.4 not 1.3.

Oops.

I get mine from torrents, type DCP and you will get tons of available downloads. There are also some pay sites.

EDIT:
I fixed the files in my copy, but I cannot figure out how to recompile the launcher. I have NSIS Portable, but I am kinda lost as to how to use it. I seem to be able to compile the nsi script for the app itself, but the launcher script gives me errors. I am sure I am not doing it right.

Just one bit UPX-ing the exe's

It's just a detail but upx-ing the main program and the codecs would take it to half the size (or less) and a little faster load.

Good suggestion.

Question- Does upx-ing affect compatibility at all?

If not then I will make sure it happens in the final release.

EDIT: I have compressed most of the dll's but I cannot seem to get the main app compressed without an error. I am using peazip. I also tried UPXShell and that did not work either. Any suggestions.

I got the entire installed size down to approx 3.7Mb

No Problem here

I've reduced size of the installed directorie to 2,13 MB (2,45MB used).
Using the upx executable without a glitch or problem.
with command line upx * ( I think there should be more exhaustive lines but that works the needed)
It runs smothly (just tried)

PS: It doesn't start if the launcher is compressed. The size could be aproximated (under 2,5 for sure)

Please test for functionality because of the compression.

Well,

Patrick did half of it, so I assumed so. I'll check it when I get home from my birthday party Sticking out tongue

Okies...

Some minor things I noticed:

  • No readme.txt in Other\Source
  • No CDisplayExPortable.ini (example INI) in Other\Source
  • Replaces stuff like C: in the settings file, might be better to have C:\ (using
    //${ReplaceInFile} "$PROGRAMDIRECTORY\cdisplayex.xml" "$1" "$0"
    ${ReplaceInFile} "$PROGRAMDIRECTORY\cdisplayex.xml" "$1\" "$0\"

    on line 142)

  • In DefaultData, 2 copies of cdisplayex.xml, I think you only need the one in Settings
  • Don't know if the category should really be Office in AppInfo.ini

But those are all minor things. Looks good Smiling

K
  • readme.txt copied to Other\Source
  • Not sure how to do that ini you are talking about.
  • In Default data removed extra xml file.
  • Changed category in AppInfo.ini to reader

If you could help with that ini I can recompile with help and changes, go to PR5 and then SF?

Well,

It's just an example INI.

For your script, it would be:

[CDisplayExPortable]
AdditionalParameters=
DisableSplashScreen=false

# This INI is an example only and will not work until placed according to the directions in readme.txt
# The above options are explained in the included readme.txt

"If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate."

How does this look?

Anybody?

CDisplayPortable.ini

[CDisplayExPortable]
CDisplayExDirectory=App\cdisplayex
SettingsDirectory=Data\settings
CDisplayExExecutable=CDisplayEx.exe
AdditionalParameters=
DisableSplashScreen=false

# The above options are explained in the included readme.txt
# This INI is just an example and is not used in its current location

Yes, but

In the launcher source code, it only reads the splash and the parameters.

Splash

Added CDisplayEx to my PortableApps to read some comics and the splash struck me as off. Not trying to jump John's ship, but I took the current splash and PA.com-branded it: http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/3401/cdisplayexportablelu1.jpg

Hope it helps and won't feel neglected if John comes up with a real splash and mine ends up not getting used, I'm just trying to be useful Sticking out tongue

Help file

Please look at this and make sure it conforms to PA.com standards. I will add this and the splash John is providing to the next prerelease.

http://wsm23.cubegames.net/Downloads/CDisplayPortable-help.html

I want to make sure the link for the support is going to be there also. I am using https://portableapps.com/forums/support/cdisplayex_portable. I guess I could point to this node for support at first until the forum was setup.

Hmm

I'd say probably under Other Apps, unless it becomes a major app.

Small things,

Type CdisplayEx Portable-Specific Issues

I don't think the tag lines use capitals.

Maybe drop the 'v'1.4 part, unless there's a specific reason you're using it.

Also, maybe relate the tag-line to the portableness of it as well, like 'a digital comic book reader 'to go'' even.

Picky, picky.

..will change it in the next release.

Just waiting for the new splash now from John.

I will recompile when that happens and we can release on SF?
