I'm a winPenPack.com developer.
winPenPack (http://www.winpenpack.com and http:/
/sourceforge.net/projects/winpenpack) is a free and open source project aimed to spread the use of portable
I'd like to signal you that we have developed a highly configurable platform
for Windows (released under GNU General Public License) that allows to create
portable versions of non natively portable programs, like RSSOwl, without any
kind of modifications or reverse engineering made on program files and in
compliance with original installation status.
I hope the RSSOwl Portable package (called X-RSSOwl Portable) does not
represent for you any kind of violation of program's license (I have noticed
that RSSOwl is released under Eclipse Public License) and, in this case, I'm
glad to post the link to X-RSSOwl Portable in winPenPack.com Format: http://w
You have just to download the .zip archive, uncompress it and double-click on
Obviously, any suggestion or feedback will be welcome! :)
1 - at X-RSSOwl first run, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is automatically
downloaded and extracted in X-RSSOwl\Lib\Java\ folder (but only if JRE is not
present in this directory). In this way anyone can use RSSOwl even if Java is
not installed in the host pc;
2 - the "-Duser.home" parameter has been set: all settings are stored in
3 - as between the various versions can be found large differences, automatic
updates have been disabled.
Cool, I think its fine :). You might also want to pass in the "-Dportable"
parameter. What it does is that it disables the internet explorer cache for
documents (unfortunately not yet for images). Thus, feeds looked at will not
be cached at the host computer (except for images - if you know how to prevent
IE from caching images, let me know).
