    I need to do a self-correction here.

    What I downloaded from Softpedia was not Smartversion but a tool called SVF eXtractor. The version on Softpedia is 2.1.13. However if you click the executable and under "Details", it says Smartversion and the product version is 3.70.

    Smartversion is the program
    all other tools/scripts simplifying the process of using Smartversion (svf.exe)

    Are you familiar with SVF eXtractor? If yes, what registry entries does SVF eXtractor write to Windows OS? The reviewer of SVF eXtractor v2.1.13 on Softpedia claims it is a portable app. It means that the app does not write registry entries to the Windows OS. I doubt it because I did find some registry entries in my OS.

    SVF eXtractor is program written in autoit. You can decompile autoit programs to the original source code. But the source code SVF eXtractor is complicated.
    If you want simple svf program then try my (also autoit, including source code, is portable):

    Thanks for your reply.

    According to @LostED, SVF eXtractor makes use of Smartversion's svf.exe.

    Which brings me back to my questions in my post #271.

    What registry entries does Smartversion write to Windows OS?

    I have some questions:

    1. Are you the author of SVF eXtractor?

    2. Does your SVF program write registry entries to the Windows OS? Does it phone home?

    3. What version of Smartversion's executable does your program use? Is it 3.70 or 3.80?

    I am not the author of SVF eXtractor.
    I am the author of the SMVGUI:

    2.
    SMVGUI does not write registry entries to the Windows OS.
    SMVGUI does not phone home.

    3.
    SMVGUI uses smv.exe included in the same folder as smvgui.exe.
    SMVGUI works well with both versions 3.70 and 3.80.

    When you meant SVFX.exe, yes.

    Could you create a portable version that does not write registry entries to Windows OS?

    Why don’t you decompile and modify it yourself? AutoIT is a script-based language and you just have to delete the lines containing the registry keys. Then you have to modify the checkboxes so they don’t want to look inside the registry anymore.

    No, your first post was 273. User tefor quoted in post 275 this post and answered the sentence: "pm me for registry entries".
    That was the beginning of the absurd discussion. Your post 271 was moved to here from another thread many hours (day(s)?) later!

    Sorry, but the "SVF eXtractor" is portable and has no installer! The registry entries are completely harmless! If it bothers you so much, use a virtual machine or programs such as Sandboxie. Or use the tool from Krakatoa.
