ZIP (portable) release 8 Years ago  
Hiya,

I'd greatly appreciate if there also was a ZIP release for those of us who hate installers.
This would have the added advantage of making Rainlendar truly portable - as for future versions, it could be updated without having to resort to an installer again.

btw: I've noticed that Rainlendar creates a few registry keys - is this really necessary? After all, Rainlendar doesn't require any file associations or such... (I bet I'm not the only one who hates it when apps store settings in the registry)

Actually it does need file associations. I don't like the registry either which is the reason why all the settings are written to an ini-file.

If you uncheck all the options in the installer it is basically the same as unzipping the archive to the destination folder. It shouldn't do any changes to the registry then.

And there is always the Universal Extractor...

I just noticed that you've added a &quot;Portable&quot; option in the installer; thanks for that!<br><br>Post edited by: Ace_NoOne, at: 2007/01/05 10:15
