[solved] Difference between running from .exe and .zip

Hi,
I'm running an experiment on OpenSesame outside of my usual lab, and so need to install it on new computers in a hurry.
My question is this: is there a difference in performance between installing OS from the .exe download (which needs the administrator to install it) and installing it from a .zip file (which I can do myself).

Thanks,

Eoin

    Hi Eoin,

    None whatsoever, the .exe is just an installation wrapper around the .zip file. I'm talking about the package labelled 'Windows XP/Vista/7 no installation required (.zip)' here. The Python-portable-based package is slightly different, but should performance-wise be about the same as well.

    Cheers!

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.

    Ah, good stuff, I won't need to track down our busy/missing system administrator then.

    Thanks!
