Using Whatpulse Anywhere
X-Kal Wrote:Yup! I'd just copy my whatpulse folder onto the jump drive, delete the .wpw files, then I was ready to go! Sure, I'd have to log in to my whatpulse account when I got to school, but as soon as that was done, it was ready to go from then on out.

(Note: You'll still need a separate profile for the pen drive - treat it like a separate computer, but you can still use it anywhere)

Thank but in V1.6s case i don't delete the .wpw file? as BobL stated the the exe doesn't generate the .wpw file were it is located.

Those instructions are for version 1.5, not 1.6.

In response to Extr3me's comment, if you have 1.5, you can do this:

1) Copy the whatpulse folder from your computer to the thumb drive
2) Close WhatPulse
3) Delete the .wpw files from the thumb drive (NOT the hard drive)
4) Run the copy of whatpulse.exe on the thumb drive and treat it as if it's a new computer, meaning it gets its own pulse profile.

The trick then is that if you're pulsing the thumb drive from your home computer, you need to close the whatpulse on your hard drive and open the one on the thumb drive.

It's actually a lot easier than I'm making it sound.

Yeh I understand all that just fine. The problem is when I load the program from the thumb drive at college, I need to login to the software by allowing the program to connect to the internet and load my account. The college firewall blocks this from happening and therefore I can't log in and use the software.

I do the logging in at home. Ideally (and I hope the developers are taking close note here), you shouldn't need to log in anywhere else. Part of the benefit of having a thumb drive whatpulse is being able to collect stats on computers that don't have internet access.

In regards to the firewall issue, it sounds like 1.6.2 will let you pick which port you use.

So now with 1.6.2, can i have it so the .wpw file is located on the pen drive rather than the the computer? If so how do i do this exactly, because i tried that on my brothers pc and the .wpw files saved to the standard location on the hard drive.

Also the use of whatpulse on a pc thats not got a internet connection(using the pen drive).

If it's not saving to the whatpulse directory, you're not going to be able to create a pen drive version that works very well, unless you're VERY diligent about copying and pasting files to the right place - and even then, this will interfere with your regular desktop pulses. I can't see how I can make this work without some sort of logistical nightmare.

Well surely we could have an option for whatpulse to save the .wpw file where ever we want? ot just have it save in its own directory?
