Portable version

Top  Previous  Next

The only difference between the portable version and regular version1 of WP Descriptive Name Explorer (WPDName) is that the portable version is designed to run from a portable usb drive (flash drive, memory stick, etc.,). The portable version:

 

Contains only the zipped executable (.exe file), a few ancillary files, and a help file (no automatic setup); and
Saves user preferences as an .ini file in the folder that contains the exe file and assumes the user has read and write privileges for that folder.

 

To install the portable version of WPDName, simply unzip WPDName 2.0 (Portable).zip to a folder of your choice on your portable drive.

 


1The regular version of WPDName follows Microsoft conventions for storing user preferences. Under Windows XP, the .ini file is stored in the users Documents and Settings folder, (e.g., C:\Documents and Settings\<your user account name>\Application Data\Knowis\WPDName\WPDName.ini). Under Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can find the .ini file under C:\Users\<your user account name>\AppData\Roaming\Knowis\WPDName\.
