Hello,

I'd like to request the option to install SK as a 'portable application'. Meaning have all of it's install files go to one place, because I like to use SK installed on my portable USB drive to tag music on that drive and at different locations (work/home/laptop1/laptop2) etc. Since SK installs it's preferences on the local machine despite installing the application itself on my portable drive, it's a bit frustrating to try and mirror setting changes across all devices. It'd be nice if SK could keep it's preferences/logs/etc in the application install folder.

Hopefully that makes sense, thanks!

Right, well you could just manually copy the songkong.properties file from location to location that should work. The major problem I see with Portable Install is that both reports and the database itself can get quite large so you need a decent sized USB for this to work.

But Ive raised:

I usually end up manually copying my license and settings files and then having to move them over to a new install manually. Maybe a second option might be an export and import settings option.

On a side note, it would also be really nice to be able to access the settings within SK without having to first point it to a folder and start up the process of tagging a collection. Would be great if i could just hit settings and see what my settings are or make changes and save them. That way I can make sure the settings are correct without having to run another batch of files.
