Lack of a root folder name that can be used for a virtual path

Post by Artur.A » Mon Jan 17, 2022 6:31 pm

Hello
straight to the point - the settings and data of the program being virtualized are in the folder -- users/Public/documents/F_folder, but there is no such root folder template in Enigma, so it's seems impossible to keep the all data inside the portable folder, isn't it?
P.S. I tried to write an absolute path of the data files in the virtual path field , but without success.

No, unfortunately not, it is c:\Users\Public\Documents\ folder.

Yes, it hasn't changed since then, it's exactly the same folder.
In my opinion, a portable program should contain everything inside itself or a specified folder, but here it creates files where it shouldn't, and even worse, it changes the data of an existing, non-portable program.

I just checked again with the same result. I don't know how to make a real portable program. The problem is that I don't know who is to blame - me or Enigma.
P.S. I don't like it when a portable program leaves traces in the computer.

Hi, if you wish your program does not create any files in the folder and keep all the changes it makes - virtual, you need to do the following:
- in EVB add this folder, right click on it, call properties dialog. Set the content property to "New files and folders are virtual".

Hello.
This is a misunderstanding. I want the program to create files and make changes to them, but store them in its portable folder, never releasing them outside.
Let's say the original program makes files and folders somewhere on the hard drive, that I want all those files and folders to be redirected to my flash drive and stored there, never created on the hard drive, leaving the hard drive clean.

This feature is being developed now, hope it will appear in future versions.
