General

  • Can I run Aeris Calendar on a portable device?
  • Only licensed users can run Aeris Calendar on a portable device.

    Note: This method can also be applied to local harddrives, but it is important to make sure that Aeris Calendar is not running in a UAC protected folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\ and C:\Program Files (x86)\ are protected by UAC).

    To use Aeris Calendar on a portable device:

    1. Move all installation files to the new folder on your flashdrive (ie. move all the files from C:\Program Files\Aeris Calendar\)
    2. Create a new file in the new folder on your portable device called 'local.dat' (this file may be empty)
    3. If you want to use your existing settings, you'll need to find your current Aeris Calendar "Settings" folder and copy this folder to your new folder on your flashdrive, see the list below for the default locations of your current 'Settings' folder.

    The default Settings folder depends on your OS:

    • Windows Vista/7/8/10:
      C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\Aeris Calendar\
    • Windows 2000/XP:
      C:\Documents and Settings\{user}\Application Data\Aeris Calendar\
    • Windows 98/ME:
      C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Aeris Calendar\

    Once all the files have been copied, you should have a directory structure like the following on your flash drive (files in green are those that were moved as part of the 'portable' process):

    F:\Aeris\Events\
    F:\Aeris\Images\
    F:\Aeris\Settings\
    F:\Aeris\Sounds\
    F:\Aeris\Themes\
    F:\Aeris.exe
    F:\local.dat
    etc...
