Portable or not? Advantage?

Postposted janetb » April 9th, 2019, 11:50 am

How can I tell if my PC-installed AllMyNotes is the portable version or not?
Is there any advantage to using the non portable version?
Thanks for any help,
Janet

Go to menu item Help -> About. If you are using Portable version it will say so.

Advantages? I guess majority of users prefer the installer, as it associates .ddb file extension with AllMyNotes on your system and creates Start menu shortcuts.

So if I'm updating the installed version on my PC I should make sure to download the newest Installed Version and not the portable version? Or does it not matter?

It does matters.

Portable version saves setting and the data file in to a folder where it's installed, while installed version saves in folder "/My Documents/AllMyNotes".

But even if you'll install Portable over installed version, or, vice-versa, it will work, you simply will need to open your data file using menu item File -> Open.
