the ReRap host made portable

All the hassle installing Java and the additional libraries needed to run the reprap host on a windows computer made me think about making everything portable, and thanks to jsmooth I think I've succeeded.

Tested on three different machines (all windows xp with no sp, sp1 and sp2, none of wich has any java jre or jdk installed)
All you have to do is unpack in desired folder (or usb stick) and run the reprap_bundled.exe from the reprap folder.
you may edit the batch file if you want to start the host with options
(I didn't, so you're on your own for now)

I also added ReplicatorG with edited JAVA_HOME in the batch file to use the same java directory as the rrhost.

tell me what you think

ReplicatorG 0001 & reprap host 20080523

filesize: 37 MB
filetype: rar
unpacked: 139 MB (thanks to java winking smiley)

Hi sid,

... great job!

I downloaded it and run the host and the replicatorC on my DualCore-desktop with Vista - the host could import and display a STL-object, next days i'll play around a bit with repG winking smiley

Since there's a new verision of replicatorG I just added the version numbers above.

As soon as the reprap host gets a new update The package will be updated too


PS yes, I know, a new host is out, but not in a stable compiled package.. so hang on!

Appears to be running fine on my Vista laptop, no reprap attatched at the moment though.
