1  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: June 22, 2009, 02:54:39 AM
mouser, I'm trying to set up FARR to run on a usbstick and search only (or at least first) in that drive
OS: XP home

I have activated the "PORTABLE=TRUE" line as mentioned above by removing the \\\ before it.
I've added the current path to USB programmes folder and unticked everything else (for the moment) and it's finding stuff

so I'm wondering is that enough or do I need a relative path to the usbstick programmes folder? (if so can you give example of a relative path - I know the theory but havent actually used them. FARR is in same programme folder)

smiley many thanks, tom

You need to add relative paths for the directories in your portable drive.

E.g. You have FARR installed on X:\Applications\FARR (X being your USB drive)  and you need to index the folder X:\Documents\SomeFolder So to relatively add the folder just add the path as \Documents\SomeFolder (Without the Drive letter X:) FARR will always consider a \folder to be in the root of the drive that itself is installed to.

Hope this helps

Great stuff! Will surely test and provide feedback. Is it in the 2.59.01 update?

you should also uncomment the new PORTABLE line near the bottom, which will make FARR only save license key info to the current directory.

I didnt quite get that. Which line are you talking about? The last line in the configdir.ini file says "//    "E:\MyCleverSettings" -> "E:\MyCleverSettings\DonationCoder\AppName\""

Am I missing a line in my ini file? Also I'd like to store all settings on my USB not just the license file ...

About the history, would it be possible to store the history of relative applications, relatively? Meaning,  if the app is launched from the FARRDRIVE then could FARR store the history as a \path\app.exe instead of X:\path\app.exe ?

A thing to note as well is that my ENTIRE history is cleared, not just the relative ones. Meaning, say I have Firefox installed on both computers, in exactly the same location (Program Files) and I launch firefox on one computer, and then plugin to my other computer, the history is still cleared.

Thanks for the quick support as usual!  Thmbsup

Hi everyone,

I am having some trouble using FARR off a USB stick. I have looked at configdir.in and the comment in the file says that the default mode (all lines commented) the settings are saved in the directory of the application. When I run FARR on my winXP box, (computer 1) all seems fine, when I add a directory to be searched, FARR updates the FindAndRunRobot.ini in the application dir on the USB. But when I plug it into my Vista box (Computer 2), it seems to pick up settings from somewhere else on that computer cuz the settings (directories added to the search list for example ) are different. Is there a way of figuring out which settings ini file is currently being used?

Now when I un-comment the line which says " CONFIGDIR = . " Then both computers use the same settings, however, my History list is completely cleared when I switch computers. While this might be intentional, as the search history may save links to the local applications which might not be available on other computers, But in a portable mode scenario I use FARR to launch only 'Relative' applications (i.e. portable apps in the same drive as FARR) In which case, loosing history every time is quite an issue. It means that FARR is essentially unlearning my most opened apps list every time.

Would really appreciate any pointers on How I can achieve compelte portability mode, and have my history saved across machines

32x32 would be easier to do I guess, but If we also had an option for 48x48, we could fit in 4 lines / labels to the description area, might be useful for some of us. Either ways works for me

Thanks for the wonderfully prompt support!

Recently jumped into FARR and love what you are doing here.

Just wanted to bump this thread up as I am having the same problem, and I am pretty sure its because I have large icons setup on my desktop. I am using WinXP. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
