Portable?
« on: March 17, 2009, 06:00:21 PM »
Hello Mouser.

I have found a couple of other sites to download a portable version of Screenshot Captor, but I wanted to know from you their legitimacy?

Is there a version of Screenshot captor that is portable, or is there a version of this application that i sportable directly through your self?

Lightscreen is leaving me PO'ed, but I find I enjoy utilizing Screenshot Captor

Thanks in advance.

PS. I have not heard from VIP as of yet. Still trying though

all of my applications are portable, the setup.exe file is actually a self-extracting zip file, that can be extracted manually into any directory or usb drive, and will work fine without any installation.

Check the ConfigDir.ini file to see how to configure the directory that settings are saved in.
That file also shows you that to set portable mode so that even license key is saved locally, uncomment the line:
PORTABLE=TRUE

You may delete ScreenshotCaptorInstall.exe setup file and any of the Clipart and Frames you do not want as well.

Very cool ... I also was recently searching for a portable capture tool to run on a corporate Domain computer and it did not occur to me that SC was already a Portable App that could be installed/run from a USB flash drive and therefore not requiring Administrator privilege on the computer.

Perhaps SC should be actively promoted on the Portable App sites?

Thanks ... Charles

How do you extract the ScreenshotCaptorSetup.exe file without installing? Use a product like 7-zip?

right, any zip extractor should work (7-zip, winzip, winrar, etc.)

If you have 7zip in your context menu just rick click the exe file and extract, if portable, open 7zip find the exe, and extract.

Any zip extractor will work :Thmbsup:

Just make sure to make the necessary ini changes listed below.

Works like a champ and impressed the heck out of a potential client that may wish to have training books made, and a presentation created. Since taking my laptop to this most recent interview was out of the questions, I took SC on the OCZ Diesel, and captured a handful of screens from the interviewers computer(concerning their programs), and added some "SC" WOW, and bingo, I think I have a new contract. Will know better in a couple of weeks, and if I can get the doctor to quit putting off my knee surgery.

I am in agreeance of this, or at least a note in the product download, or possibly a forum to address what is and is not able to be portable, concerning all software available here at DC.
The forums would also address what needs to be done to make the software portable, and any issues that may arise, to correct any portable limitations of the software as portable.

We list these software packages as portable, but I am really just and old unix/linux user that has fallen in love with the self-contained App., and the self contained app allows me to change my portable apps as needs, plus the un-install is as simple as deleting the containing folder.

minus some app folder data serches to ensure the program and all related attachments are gone.

Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I don't think there is a need to open a new one with the same subject.

SC portable creates a registry key and doesn't remove it upon exit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RtColorPicker. Could this be avoided in any way? It doesn't affect the portability, but it makes SC not stealth.

Second issue: the ColorCop v5.4.5 tool included in the portable zip file is not portable anymore, but the previous version 5.3 is. Can this one be included in SC portable zip package instead?

Thanks for the post joby.  I didn't realize the RtColorPicker component was saving a registry key -- SC isn't asking it to do so so let me see if i can disable that or replace the component.  As for ColorCop, let me look into it -- i don't care either way and perhaps it shouldn't be included at all..
