I noticed that if I took the Comical executable and the mingwm10.dll and put it on a thumb drive that I now had a portable comic book reader. So what, you ask?

I haven't checked yet, but could burn it to CD with an autorun.inf file and have a portable self loading comic book for the kids. Or take your comic books with you on a thumb drive.

Any chance of wrappering the dll and the exe to create a "Portable App"?

Thanks.

    Forgot to add with the "portable self loading comic book" - Would be nice if it would automatically open a zipped file in the same directory as the executable. That way you could truly make a self loading comic book when a burned CD autoplays. So I guess my post is a request for two enhancements instead of one. Thanks for the great work.

    Went ahead and burned the executable, mingwm10.dll, an autoinf to launch the executable and about 300 comic books onto CD. Works like a charm. My son now does not need to keep all of his comic books on the hard drive and they are readily "backed up" now.
