Not sure on Vista.
If you create a portable app and it resides OUTSIDE of Programs File,
then the updates can be stored in the Portable Apps folder. Check out
the new ButtonGadget2 to see what I mean. It installs everything in a
single folder, including ButtonSets (the users documents).
ThoughtOffice (www.thoughtoffice.com) is another portable application
architecture which stored everything BUT the users documents in it's
own enclosed folders.
