A portable application can be run from a removable drive (USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive, etc) on any Windows computer without installation.
You will carry the program with settings on removable drive and don't modify settings on host computer.
On Vista and above turn off User Account Control (UAC) or run launcher as admin.

The app behavior is different from last version, I used to run it and then I could unlock any file using its context menu plus I could set UNLOCKER as a startup app from its tray icon. Now I have to run unlocker and navigate to the file I want to unlock and I can't even drag and drop a file, that's kind of unproductive. I wonder why EmptyLoop made this change.

No change in behavior.

For symmetry with 64 bit (wich have no assistant), launcher run now main exe (start with browse window) but start assistant on 32 bit (tray icon).

In both architecture Unlocker is in explorer context menu while main exe is running (32 bit assistant launched before and killed after).

This is not portable to have assistant on startup: in this case better to install it.

What is "Error Debug Privileges"? It means that your Local Security Settings do not allow a Debug Privilege for your profile. Read Microsoft's documentation and set "Debug Programs" rights.

I think regsvr32 doesn't work on x64 machine.
Try to use this:

Function RegPortableDLL
${If} ${RunningX64}
Exec `"$SYSDIR\rundll32.exe" "${PORTABLEDLL164}" DllRegisterServer`

Function UnRegPortableDLL
${If} ${RunningX64}
Exec `"$SYSDIR\rundll32.exe" "${PORTABLEDLL164}" DllUnregisterServer`

regsvr32 too work for me on Win8 x64.

NSIS RegDLL and UnRegDLL didn't work for the 64 bit dll.

Hi Bernat, you're really the savior... this freeware has the latest portable release of v1.9.0 in 2010. Look around the net finally spot on it here :-) Merci Monsieur!

a little note, earlier I did dl the v1.9.2 so i just put it in the same folder as your portable app, and it detected the exe presence and skip further dl upon installation.
