Ultraedit-32 released for U3 drives (but there's a catch...)
« on: August 16, 2007, 12:46:51 PM »
IDM Solutions have released a U3 version of their popular Ultraedit-32 text editor. However, it requires a separate licence and there is only a 40% discount for current licence holders. Thus, to gain the ability to take Ultraedit with you will cost, after the discount, $29.95. People have been clamouring for this for years. However, I think it's too bad that this is a U3 solution only (I'm sure that there are workarounds for those of you who do not have U3 drives/wish to use the U3 software) and that this is being sold at such a premium. Many vendors make portability a feature of a regular licence (XYPlorer, any of JGSoft's offerigs - EditPad Pro, PowerGrep, etc.) or charge a nominal fee for it (GPSoft and Directory Opus 9 springs to mind - their portable licence is $10 AUD).

There are detailed instructions on the UE forum for getting it to work from a standard USB drive, at least through version 12.20 (latest is 13.10)

thanks mrainey - I've used that solution in the past. It worked for a while and then went pearshaped (with v.13). Not actually a big deal for me... I just like to complain!  :P

No, you're right, it's a little steep for people who already have a license.  There's nothing on version 13 that changed my life anyway, so if I go the USB route it'll be with v.12

Doh! I hadn't thought of doing that (simply installing v.12 onto a thumbdrive).

I have made v13 portable using the Application Portable Template (I use notepad++ but shhhh:P). It's quite easy if you know how to use NSIS. I'd post my loader here but im not sure that's legal.
