Pros and consAll of the EmEditor features are available. The launch and operation speed is the highest. You may encounter problems with other installed applications while installing or uninstalling the program.Installation is not necessary, because there is no read and write to the registry. It is safe to use as long as you save the data the INI file. But the launch and operating speed is slower than the Installer version.Without affecting the system, this version can be safely installed and uninstalled. Because UWP app runs within the app container, the impact to the system does not occur. Reading and writing to the registry will be redirected to the app dedicated registry. This version does not affect the entire system registry. Also, since UWP app version does not use INI file, its speed is almost the same as the speed of EmEditor’s installer version.
