is it possible to use this tool with a memory stick? it saves the config in the windows user settings dir… is there any possibility to change this dir? it would be nice to take the tool with all settings an actions with me on a memory stick.
Any tips how to manage this?

This is doable, but it’s not easy, and it may not be consistent. (It’s been a while since I tried something like that.)

If the memory stick is not in the same location (drive letter) always, then no, it’s not doable. Otherwise, you can put the configuration file on the memory stick, and when you launch JBidwatcher, launch it with the path of the config file on the memory stick.

So, for example, your command line would look like this:
m:\JBid\jbidwatcher.jar m:\JBid\JBidWatch.cfg

That would use the JBidWatch.cfg from the m:\JBid directory (m: being for Memory Stick in my mock example). That config file would point to m:\JBid\auctions.xml for the XML storage file, as well.

However, I think there are other parts of the program (error logs, etc.) that are stored ‘centrally’.

The core portable parts are configurable like that, though, I believe.
