Title: portable edition: thanks and thoughts
Post by: winamper on August 11, 2021, 01:23:43 AM
Ever since I discovered portable apps for Windows some 4 years ago, that's all I use (when I have the option).

A couple of the main advantages are

So... from every fiber of my being, thank you to you devs for the WACUP portable edition.

There were portable editions of Winamp floating about on the internet if one knew where to find them. And I've used those in the past. And I've even portabilized Winamp myself in the past. But they always had some issues or the other that made them somewhat unpleasant to use. Having used lots and lots of portable versions of Winamp, I believe WACUP portable is the best portable version out there.

I've had a couple of issues with my installation of WACUP portable edition, and I'm writing the rest of this post to bring attention to these issues.

That's all -- thanks!

WACUP in it's current beta / preview state is acting like it's a portable install no matter what install type is made. That's why the icons & file association aspects are just not implemented (it also doesn't even work in the current betas as it's never been a supported mode with any of the WACUP builds).

For the autoplay issue, it's related to the first 'issue' though there's already a number of checks in place for it to skip applying it if the file has changed so I'll have to come back to it when I get external loading working again in the later beta builds.
