Thanks to Arsimael, who blogged about that in German here, I’m happy to translate and re-blog his content on our blog in English. If you want to make Royal TS V2 portable and start it from a USB memory stick, external drive or even from a Dropbox folder, continue to read…
Portable means, that you do not have to install Royal TS to use it. You just put in your memory stick and start Royal TS from the memory stick – without installing it.
To make a portable version of Royal TS V2 you need to download and install it once. After you’ve installed it on your computer it’s a very simple procedure to make it portable:
Copy the contents from the Royal TS V2 installation directory to the new location.
By default Royal TS V2 is installed in %ProgramFiles(x86)%/code4ward.net/Royal TS V2
Note: Do not move the files to the new location. After you’ve copied the files to the new location, you may uninstall Royal TS again, since you will the start it from the new location.
Royal TS needs a couple of configuration files. By default they are stored in the users profile directory. Since we also want to have our settings wherever we go, we need to create a new configuration folder in the new location where we copied the Royal TS files.
In the folder where RTS2App.exe was relocated, create a subfolder called with the name config.
In the new location, open the file
RTS2App.exe.config in notepad and search for the following text:
change the line above to:
%APPDATA%/code4ward and copy the file
code4ward.RoyalTS.UserPreferences.config to the folder you created in step 2.
Royal TS is now portable!
While the above works well in general, there might be the one or the other issue:
Have fun and thanks again to Arsimael for the blog post!
