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"?
