IOS on USB
[1/5] from: robert::muench::robertmuench::de at: 19-Nov-2003 10:45
Hi, IIRC we once had a discussion if / how to get the IOS Link client to run from an USB stick. I just tried it but the Link client wants to install itself. I think this has to do that IOS Link searches for a registry key, if it's already installed. Does someone know which registry keys are used? As I don't expect RT to fix this issue in a time range, that I will live to see, I'm thinking about something different. How about a simple tool, that will catch registry access calls and reroute them to some ini files? With this it would be possible to decouple a lot of programs from a local registry. -- Robert M.

well ... I replied in another mail, but - beware of IOS marketing :-) Most ppl claim that IOS is good, because it syncs to all your machines and some of us even tend to argue, that Lotus Notes e.g. and its server based central storage is not good. Now we want to go with go everywhere, sync once too? I know it is a bit different, as you still have your data local, instead than on server, but anyway ... interesting issue to think about ... -pekr-

I recommend go to www.sysinternals.com (lots of good stuff in there) and download regmon "Registry Monitor". Then you can watch what it is trying to do exactly. Anton.

How about --reinstall tried it (on linux). had to click "install"-yes "license"-yes and correct the install-dir. /link restarted and downloaded nothing, using old content. so with a short path like "z:\ios" setup is quick. Am Donnerstag, 20. November 2003 03:17 schrieb Anton Rolls:

Hi, hmm... that's not perfect but OK. But you first have to find out what drive-letter your USB stick gets assigned. Robert
