ProcessTamer / Re: Is ProcessTamer "Portable?"
« on: June 20, 2007, 11:01 AM »
Well...

For what it's worth, it WILL run off a USB Flash Drive - I just tested it! I copied the ProcessTamer folder (including the embedded "Extras" folder) from "C:\Program Files" to a "I:\PortableApps" and it not only works, it appears on the PortableApps start menu!
(well - ALL THREE of the executables appear there :-\).

You have to know to run the ProcessTamerTray executable to get things going but it seems to run like a champ. If you change any settings it rewrites the ProcessTamer.ini file BACK TO THE FLASH DRIVE, not to "C:\Program Files\ProcessTamer". I watched it run for a bit and it DID adjust priorities.
 
Then I got nasty  :P and yanked the flash drive out while it was still running. It seems to keep functioning, and can be enabled and disabled, but none of the dialogs will open. No big surprise in that, though.

Some apps are "semi-portable" in that they will WORK from a flash drive but may leave traces in the host system's registy and such. ProcessTamer may or may not fully "portable" as the apps at http://portableapps.com are, but it WORKS - just like many of the apps at http://www.portablefreeware.com.

ProcessTamer / Is ProcessTamer "Portable?"
« on: June 20, 2007, 08:48 AM »
Hello, All,

I am using ProcessTamer and would LOVE to be able to place it on a USB flashdrive and carry it around with me, to run on any PC (following the concepts from http://portableapps.com). Can ProcessTamer do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hooray, I got columns now! Thank you, jgpaiva!

   PS: Sorry, mouser, for fooling you.   :)

I am new to FFAR and I apologize if this is a really dumb question (I have searched the forums to no avail). I am running FFAR 2.00.108 on a Win2000 SP4 system, and I cannot see the column headers!

I get a FFAR window like this:

And no matter what setting or skin I use, I always get a column-less display. Here are my current options:

What am I doing wrong??
