Sorry to resurrect an old thread.

I've also been eagerly waiting a portable version of Newsleecher.
Please make it happen!

What can I do to make this prog run on a U3 USB drive?

It would be so cool, just plug-in and leech the desired content right in the moment of need....

No security issues on that computer, no installing, no discussions with admins....

PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Let's resurrect this thread after 9 years...

Now, Newsleecher 7.0 is installable without purchase ( without some features ), is it possible that we could have a portable version?!?

This gets you pretty close to "portable"

create a file called "newsleecher.ini" right next
to newsleecher.exe

Use the below variables to redirect the folders..
Let's say your K: drive is your <usborwhatever>

create two folders (i recommend the "_" to have them above)

_temp -> K:\_temp\
_data -> K:\_data\

now edit the newsleecher.ini (just the 2 entries)

dataFolder=K:\_data\
tempFolder=K:\_temp\

save it. Maybe copy your old settings from %APPDATA%\newsleecher


Next start it will use the folders you've set.
Make sure they exist!

So, you still need to have an istalled version. Are you sure that there is no need for registry entries?
