Hey Dan,

Totally understandable

You don't really need registry knowledge though, see this:

Firstly, you should backup your own WinUAE setup...

Export this key from the registry: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Arabuusimiehet]

If your WinUAE setup is in "C:\WinUAE" then rename it or move elsewhere.


...but you can run multiple different WinUAE setups

Mine is set to be registry based. With your setup you could have it in another directory, start WinUAE and then tick "Portable mode" from under "Paths".
...but to add to the above, you can do the reverse

Firstly before doing anything, start your *own* WinUAE install and then tick "Portable mode" from under "Paths". Exit, test, make sure all is good.

Now if in *your* WinUAE setup is in "C:\WinUAE" then rename it or move elsewhere.

Everything now safe

Extract my stuff from the archives and double-click "setup.exe".
