Patch to run ImgBurn & DVD Decrypter off USB Flash Drive

Recommended Posts

:thumbup: A patch to run ImgBurn and DVD Decrypter directly off of a USB Flash Drive. I am requesting this because I use Internet cafes around the world that are locked down, but these PCs usually allow executables (EXE) to be run from a flash drive.

(!) I need to get off my ass by the by and donate to you since I have used your programs so much.

 

I would be happy to buy you a USB flash drive and maybe send you some bribes from Hawaii if that would entice you to make ImgBurn portable.

 

I don't know if you are familiar with the U3 Smart Drive platform ( http://www.u3.com/ ), but perhaps that would make portability of your applications easier.

well it would just use the default ones.

 

I can't imagine they lock out the hkey_current_user reg key so it should save them ok too. Export them from home to a .reg file and then import when you get there.

 

In any case, if we're talking about internet cafe's, who cares about custom settings?! You'll do what you have to do and then get out of there.

lol I've never even seen an internet cafe!

 

And I can't count how many internet cafes I've seen - major cities in Europe, Asia, South America, and about 20 places in Mexico. But then I'm not in them to use ImgBurn, rather to check/make travel reservations and keep up with e-mail. Strangest place - Cairo, Egypt where water pipes are next to the computers. Can't remember how we traveled before the internet...

A mate of mine travelled the far east a few years ago and used them to send back updates on his progress - I honestly didn't believe the descriptions of their locations until he returned and I saw the photos !! :w00t:

Instead of registery, why not use an ini file for storing settings or at least give an option like "Media Player Classic" to choose between registery or ini file. This way it can used on USB Drives as well.

That's already optional.

 

Sorry for my ignorance LUK, but where is it?? I've scaned all the options but was unable to find it.

Oops....sorry. Overlooked it. Yeah its there. Could you please provide this option in general settings (just a tick box) so that users like me won't bother you again.

And thanks again for the great app.

It's purely a CLI argument and none of those are mentioned within the GUI - nor will they be I'm afraid. Ini's are a pain when it comes to program updates and so I actually prefer it when people don't use them.

Although I don't know how it create problems in program updates (...and that shows how much of development I've "actually" done) but atleast its there if someone needs it.
