Hello all,

I've got a Portable version of Eraser set up and compiled for Win32, you can find that here: 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.

I've re-released the Portable version.

This fixes a path error for storing default.ers

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


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.

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.

There aren't issue with this, right?

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.


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

I check this forum daily for updates, but it seems to me that no one is working on this software lately. I read about a 'version 6', but it's surely a long time in coming, if indeed ever. The 'Portable beta' version also seems to be in limbo. Is this entire project dead ? :-( Updates, please ? ? ?
>>Is this entire project dead ? Updates, please ? ? ?

Far from it. Eraser is free, we work on it as our spare time permits.


OK I'll ask again :) . Is there any progress on a portable eraserl.exe 5.87b1 (command line version)?

As someone else wrote recently in this thread and considering how often eraser is NOT updated, I fear the worst also - that this fine product is dead. It has been a l-o-n-g time between releases... :-(
