Portable Installation - Updating Existing to New Version
« on: May 11, 2015, 11:58:39 AM »
I have the portable version of Screenshot Captor installed as I do not have admin rights on my laptop to do a full install. Can someone point me to directions for updating my existing portable version with new versions when they become available?

I have been unzipping new versions to new directories each time. This is tedious as I then have to configure the preferences from scratch each time there is a new version.

I assume there is a better way. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Exit Screenshot Captor if running and then just unzip new portable .zip file into your old directory, overwriting files.  You should be all set.
The portable zip does not contain a settings file so it won't overwrite your existing settings.

Thanks, that worked. Looks like only three files from the latest portable zip archive were updated.
