Portable Java...maybe soon...ish

I think I have an idea onhow to run java from a portadrive but it keeps backfiring on me. I copied the registry settings for java into my template and I want to use a getroot command to change the drive letter in to the correct one and then write it to the registry. (it does the local backup and stuff too) Whenever I try to compile it, it says "writeregstr requires 4 parameters, got 5"

any ideas?

this could be used to change the settings file of a program to use the current drive letter too.

Not Quite

The problem with messing with the registry for Java is that it requires admin rights, which you won't have on most PCs you (or a friend) don't own. Java will be working within the PortableApps.com Platform in a slightly different way that will allow you to run many Java apps portably in the near future.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

hmm... well I still need to find a way to manipulate the settings files. That should be somewhat decent.
