All my apps have been portable in the sense that that everything they
need is in one folder -- it can be run from anywhere in any hard drive,
But auto-updates, there's the stickler. Where does one store downloaded
app parts on both Mac and Win so it can be as available to all users as
the executable in the Applications/Program Files directory is?
On Mac, with a custom installer you can create a subfolder in your app's
folder that's universally-writable. So as long as you use a custom
installer you're set.
But on Windows? And in a way that works from Win98 through Vista?
