About the portable version

Forums: 

I tried the portable version for Windows , but it is not portable because it saves settings (bleachbit.ini) in %AppData%\BleachBit directory. It is possible to add an environment variable (i.e. %BleachBitHome%) or a command line (i.e. -profile "path") in the future versions?

I'd like to make it even simpler than that. You may see this in version 0.7.1. Also, you may file it in https://bugs.launchpad.net/bleachbit/ so I don't lose it, though I expect I'll just add it soon anyway

Try BleachBit 0.7.1 beta. If BleachBit detects a file BleachBit.ini in the same directory as BleachBit.exe, then it switches in to portable configuration mode. The file doesn't need anything special in it, but to avoid an error message, it contains "[portable]" (which could also be "[foo]").
