I often like to print a sudoku for the train (from various websites) ... it would be sooo much easier if i could print directly from the app like some other sudoku apps

The PC do not see my Pen drive anymore!!!!!!!
I just installed the Suduku Portable on my Transcend JF V30/4Gb. Pen drive.
Windows CAN NOT SEE the Drive now.
Properties of the Now Generic Disk, said File System unknown. Before it was FAT 32.
How I fix this. I have important files in this Pen Drive
YOU CAN USE THE NUMERIC KEYPAD, TO INPUT POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS, WHEN YOU TURN ON CAPSLOCK.
I am an avid user of your Sudoku Portable. I understand you want to keep the application small so you have more than one solution to your puzzles. That is OK I just use this as brain candy. I would like to see an update that will automatically delete the small numbers in a square when a large number is selected. And I just mean the small numbers that correspond to the quadrant the number is in as well as the associated horizontal and vertical lines with that number. It would make solving the puzzle much easier and faster.
Initial numbers give multiple solutions.
In the DOSBox Portable page, it says you can set up C in the DOSBox to point to a path on your portable drive by adding this to the dosbox.conf file:
mount C: \PathOnMyDevice
I created a folder named DOSGames on the root of my thumb drive. However, "mount C: \DOSGames" doesn't work. I've only been able to get it to work if I do "mount C: G:\DOSGames". I'd rather not do this, however, since the thumb drive doesn't mount to drive G: on every system (it's G: on my work PC, but I: on my home PC).
Any advice on how I can make this generic?
I have to agree with a much echoed sentiment here that this application is not up-to-par with the quality of the other PortableApps.com applications--multiple solutions and guessing at numbers isn't "hard" it's just annoying.
Is anyone aware of better alternatives? Maybe a different source we could point John toward in making it portable? I haven't tried many Windows applications for this, but they mostly seem to be not free and not portable.
A couple of excellent, free, and open-source projects I have found for other platforms, both written in JAVA, are:
I've just published a small script for the liveXP project from winbuilder which includes sudoku from portableapps.com
Also mentioned both developers on the credits section of the script and added a link to the respective portable app webpage on the description.
btw: There's a small typo on the sudoku description, look here: "Sudoku Portable is a an addictive"
You can find this script here:
I am clicking on the executable. I have to re-install the program every time I want to run it. What the solution?
