Eraser 5.87-beta 1 Portable

Postby Joel » Wed Mar 05, 2008 12:17 pm

Hello all,

I've got a Portable version of Eraser set up and compiled for Win32, you can find that here: http://eraser.sourceforge.net/Portable.zip. Extract it and run Eraser.exe, settings will be stored in an INI file in the same directory.

The bugs mentioned in the earlier thread about the beta installer has not been fixed, I'll fix them soon and release a new version. Do test the portable version for registry keys and files left behind on the computer and for any bad or missing functionality and report back.

Thanks!
Joel

This fixes a path error for storing default.ers

A few (3) last registry keys and this will be completely portable/stealth.

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Eraser.Document]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Eraser.Document\DefaultIcon]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Eraser.Document\shell\open\command]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Eraser.Document\shell\print\command]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Eraser.Document\shell\printto\command]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ers]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ers\ShellNew]

Regards.

The Eraser code do not have references to these entries. They don't seem to be created by the running of Eraser. Perhaps they have been left behind from an old install? Do check and get back to me.

Thanks for this!

Any chance we'll see a standalone version of EraserL.exe?

EraserL is already standalone, in the normal distribution. You can install eraser on a trusted computer and use EraserL from there.

Sorry, poor wording I guess. I meant a portable version of EraserL that doesn't require the VC++ libraries to be installed (ie statically linked). Just like the Eraser version in this thread. I just need the commandline functions for scripting and automation etc.

Unless I'm mistaken and this portable Eraser still DOES require the runtimes to be installed?? Can you clear that up for me?

Ah. I see. I'll do that.

Yeah the portable ones do not need the runtime.

Thanks! I'm eagerly awaiting this, since I'm stuck at v5.84 for the moment.

Hi,

I don't have issues with it. But I assume you are asking the other admins/developers?

Well there aren't anything that has come to my attention that needs urgent fixing so this beta can be used for everyday purposes if you so choose. But it is a beta still.

Hi,

The link posted only contains eraser.dll and eraser.exe.
Are you planning to release a portable eraserl.exe (ie the command line version)?
