ComicRack v0.9.25 released

Here's a small bugfix release after all the x-mas and New Years chaos :)

As always here's a quick rundown on the changes:

  • NEW: ComicRack.exe.config file with UseLocalSettings switch. Setting this to true will store all settings in the application\Data folder and make the application portable (USB stick etc.)
  • CHANGE: Server does not send error image anymore
  • BUG: Thumbnail page curl did not uncover current page, but last page read
  • BUG: Fixed "Mark As Read". Wonder if I get this command ever right (see .24, .11)
  • BUG: ComicRack crashed when no eComic Folder in Preferences/Library was defined and a click into the list happened.

The new UseLocalSettings options allows to keep all the program/settings/library/caches in one location and therefore makes ComicRack portable e.g. on an USB stick. Simply copy the full ComicRack installation folder to your stick and add a file ComicRack.exe.config with the following content to the folder

<add key="UseLocalSettings" value="true"/>

Now ComicRack will solely run from the stick and does not read/write any data from/to your windows machine. Of course as a prerequisite you will still need .Net 2.0 installed on the machine you plug the stick into.

I will add a zip only download for this configuration later.

I hope this is the last release posted to this blog, as I really try to move all the stuff over to the new website during the coming weekend.

New hosting of setup file

As a first step of the transition to the new server, I've moved the ComicRackSetup.exe file.
This should end all the downloading problems.

New server on the way

I just completed ordering the new web hosting. (linked page is german)

Depending on how fast the setup will be, i try to move stuff there during the next days. This should also end the downloading woes...

I hope this will be a good start into the new year :)

First donations

Yep :)

I have received two donations. Thanks to one of these being very generous I currently stand at 80 €.
I also looked into some hosting options and came to following amount needed:

10 €/Month hosting
10 € domain registration fee

So currently I'm still 50 € short.

What I plan to do is put ComicRack on its own domain (, org whatever). Move the board there. Move the blogs there. Develop a backend database where ComicRack can store and retrieve comics information (something like cddb).

This would put the whole project to a new level i think...

Anyway, thanks to the donators. Every € is appreciated :)
