It allows you to run Avant off of a USB Flash (pen) drive.

In places where you can't install Avant... or if you want to take your configuration with you wherever you go, but don't want to use online storage.

I think it still relies on that...

I don't think I've tried USB 8, but 6 & 7 won't access online at all for me. I don't even have File -> My Account.

Thanks for saying something, though. I'll look into it and maybe post.

Avant U3

Post by munkey » Sun Oct 01, 2006 9:15 pm

Just caught this topic and wondered if t here is a U3 version of Avant out there? Haven't really looked at the portable version - will this one work with U3?

Cheers
Steve

Guess I am going to have to find out about U3. I was pleased that I finely got me a 1GB USB key chain drive. Then when I plug it in, it loads a bunch of U3 stuff and now I see a small CD drive and my USB drive. I didn’t want all that, all I wanted was more removable storage. I hate it when stuff like that shows up. I check and it didn’t load anything on the desktop computer, so that is good.
Thank You

But how do I transfer all my settings (including FAVORITES) from the Desktop version to the USB version.

I don't have me thumbdrive with Avant on me now, but copying the profile folder contents from your PC (At C:\Documents and Settings\your Windows account\Application Data\Avant Profiles\this folder) to the corresponding folder on the thumbdrive should work.

Does that back up the 'Bookmarks' too?
