Downloading

  1. Decide What You Want — The first step is to decide what you want to get. Do you want a copy of Firefox Portable to run by itself? Or do you want to download the full PortableApps Suite so you have a whole platform for portable apps? For most folks, getting the whole suite is recommended.
  2. Browse to the App Page — Now that you’ve decided what you’d like to get, browse to the app’s page with its logo and the big download button. If you scroll down to the download details section of that page, it’ll tell you how much space it will take up on your device.
  3. Click the Download Button — Click the big red download button
  4. Select a Mirror — The next page lets you select a mirror. This is just a technical way of saying, select a download server that’s close to you geographically so your download will be faster. You’ll see servers all over the world. Pick one nearby and then click the Download link in the right-hand column of the table for the server you’ve chosen.
  5. Save it Locally — Your browser will usually ask you where you’d like to save the file at this point. We recommend saving it right to your computer’s desktop so it’s easy to find.
  6. Wait for it to finish — The download will begin. After it finishes, you can move on to installing

Запуск программ в PortableApps.com

Значок PortableApps.com Platform отображается в области уведомлений (трее), если приложение установлено на жесткий диск компьютера. Если портативная платформа установлена на флешку, то значок отобразится после подключения  USB накопителя к ПК, в том случае, если на компьютере не отключен автозапуск с внешних устройств.

AntiVirus Scans of Apps and False Positives

All of our apps are scanned for viruses before release. Nearly all apps are scanned online using VirusTotal using dozens of antivirus engines. On each app’s homepage, you can click the Antivirus Scan link below the download button to link to its results. For apps above VirusTotal’s 650MB limit, we scan the files locally using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, ClamAV, and at least one other commercial antivirus engine. For these files, the Antivirus Scan link on the app’s homepage will link here.

Some false positive reports occasionally pop up in different antivirus products in conjunction with software. This is partially due to the compression and portablization techniques used but mostly due to a failure of some antivirus companies to bad virus definition updates or questionable heuristics detections. If you encounter a false positive, please test the file in another antivirus product before reporting the issue to us in the forums to ensure that it’s not an error in their software. Several companies make available online scanners for individual files, so you won’t even have to install software (VirusTotal, MetaDefender, Jotti). Note that these online scanners use dozens of antivirus engines and will generally show false positives in a few of them. False positives in engines like Jiangmin, Bkav, Qihoo, and Trapmine can safely be ignored. You can also use ClamWin Portable or Emsisoft Portable to scan on the go. Thanks for your help.

Using a Portable App

If you’re using the PortableApps.com Platform, to start your portable app, just click its icon within the menu.

If you’re running it standalone, browse to the directory you installed the AppNamePortable directory you installed to and then double-click the AppNamePortable.exe file. Then, just use the app as you’d use the regular version.

While using portable software, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Stay Safe — When using portable apps, it’s always a good idea to practice Safe Portable App-ing.
  • Close Apps Before Ejecting/Shutting Down — When you’re done, close all your portable apps and the PortableApps.com Platform. The platform can automatically close all your running portable apps for you and eject your drive or prompt to shut down your computer. If using an external drive without the PortableApps.com Platform, select the ‘Safely remove ‘ option from the icon in the system tray. If you remove the drive while it is in use, you could corrupt your apps and lose your data. If you shutdown Windows while a portable app is still running, it may not get to save its settings and remove any local data before closing.

Downloading a Portable App

PortableApps.com Platform — The easiest way to download new portable apps is to use the PortableApps.com Platform’s . Just click Apps from the PortableApps.com Menu and select Get More Apps. From there, you can view apps by Category, Alphabetically, Recently Updated or New Releases

Standalone — To download apps directly from PortableApps.com without our platform, just click the Download button from the application’s page. You’ll see a SourceForge download page that automatically selects a download server close to you and redirects you to the download. (If you’re using Internet Explorer, you may need to click the direct download link on this page. It appears as «If you are experiencing problems with the download please use this direct link» on the SourceForge page.) When you download the file, save it to a location you can easily find later like your Desktop or Downloads folder.

Portable App Definition (permalink)

A portable app is a computer program that doesn’t need to be installed into Windows like traditional apps so you can carry it with you on a portable device or cloud drive and use on any Windows computer. When your USB flash drive, portable hard drive, or other portable device is plugged in or your cloud drive is synced, you have access to your software and personal data just as you would on your own PC. And when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.

No Special Hardware — Use any USB flash drive, portable hard drive, etc

No Additional Software — Just download, run the portable installer and go

No Kidding — It’s that easy

Issue with app installers showing and requiring clicking Next/Finish during automatic updates

When automatically updating or installing your apps via the PortableApps.com Platform, the installers should be running in silent mode. The only exception to this is if you need to agree to agree to a license agreement when installing a new app or when updating an app and the license has changed. (And we’ll be consolidating that in a future release.) If you see installers checking the install directory and requiring you to click Next and then Finish, that means the installers are unable to see the running PortableApps.com Platform and are not running in fully silent/automated mode. First, make sure both the PortableApps.com Platform and PortableApps.com Updater/App Store are still running. If you close the platform while the updater is running, installers won’t run silently. Second, try rebooting your machine. Sometimes Windows has issues with processes being visible to each other after specific applications have run or Windows has been running for a long time. There is also an obscure bug that takes places with a specific set/number of processes running that is fixed by a reboot. This is fixed in the current PortableApps.com Installer release but many apps use an older version. Third, make sure the permissions on your drive are correct. If using NTFS on an external drive, ensure Everyone is set to Full Access for everything within the PortableApps directory. Fourth, check your machine for viruses and malware. Infections can sometimes interfere with some processes and with messaging between processes. Fifth, check your drive for errors. Some logical errors can interfere with the installers checking for the platform on your drive. Sixth, try installing a new copy of the platform over itself. You can download it from the Download page and run the installer, select a custom location, then select the directory that Start.exe is in. Lastly, if none of this applies to you, you can post a note to our forums with the complete details (Windows version and build number, 32 or 64-bit, full install path, and any other relevant details).

Advanced Features

These advanced features require you to edit the PortableAppsMenu.ini file within your X:\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\Data directory. You need to edit it with the Platform closed and be sure to add the entry (or edit the existing entry if it is already there) to the section unless otherwise noted.

  • Global Hot Key (11.1 and up) — By default, the platform uses a global hot key of Ctrl-Alt-Space to show the menu from other apps. You can select an additional option or disable it by changing the line GlobalHotKey=CTRL-ALT-SPACE to another value. Valid entries are CTRL-ALT-SPACE, CTRL-ALT-P, CTRL-ALT-M, CTRL-SPACE, WIN-ALT-SPACE and DISABLED. Note that WIN-ALT-SPACE will not work on many versions of Windows.
  • Portable TEMP Directory — If you create a directory called TempForPortableApps in the same directory as Start.exe (‘next to’ the PortableApps and Documents directories), the platform will use that as the TEMP directory for all apps it launches. Note that any local apps launched from the platform or its apps will also use this as TEMP, so use with caution!

Advanced options no longer listed separately here have now been added to the PortableApps.com Platform’s expanded Options window, mostly on the Advanced tab.

Using Portable Fonts With the Platform

The PortableApps.com Platform supports the ability to take standard font files (TTF, OTF, etc) with you and use them on any computer without the need to install them into Windows. Just copy the font files you’d like available to the X:\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\Data\Fonts directory in a standard platform setup. You may need to create the Fonts folder. Everything else is automatic and the fonts will be available to you in your apps while the platform is running. It should be noted that some apps use non-standard ways of determining what fonts are available and won’t be able to see them (GIMP and Scribus, for example), though in some of these apps you may be able to .

Note that Windows 10 introduced a bug that causes the APIs to load fonts and inform apps to be processed much slower (on the order of 10 to 100x) in the Creators Edition update. As a result, we recommend limiting the number of fonts you have loaded at platform start if you experience slowdowns.

Portable App Guidelines (permalink)

  • A portable app works from any device (USB flash drive, portable hard drive, cloud drive, memory card, etc)
  • A portable app works as you move computers and your drive letter changes
  • A portable app is self-contained in a single directory with sub-directories and files within
  • A portable app’s features continue working as you move computers
  • A portable app doesn’t leave files or folders behind except those automatically generated by Windows
  • A portable app doesn’t leave registry entries behind except those automatically generated by Windows
  • A portable app is optimized for use on removable drives
  • A portable app doesn’t require additional software on the PC
  • A portable app doesn’t interfere with software installed on the PC

Disabling a Portable App’s Splash Screen

Many apps packaged in PortableApps.com Format include splash screens so the user sees quick feedback an app is starting on slower flash media and doesn’t accidentally try to start it again. The splash screens also serve to let users know that they’re using a repackaged version of an app and to visit us first for portable support issues. If you’d prefer not to see the splash screen, disabling it is a snap.

PortableApps.com Platform — Click Options and select the Advanced tab. There, you’ll see a checkbox to disable splash screens across all our apps. Note that this will only affect splash screens shown by the PortableApps.com Launcher and not splash screens displayed by the apps themselves (GIMP, LibreOffice, etc).

Standalone — Within the AppNamePortable\Other\Source directory (where AppName is the name of the app you’re working with), you’ll find an AppNamePortable.ini file that includes some example options. Copy this file to the AppNamePortable directory and rename it, if necessary, to the name of the app (FirefoxPortable.ini or similar). Open the file within your preferred text editor, something like Notepad++ Portable. Within, you’ll find an entry DisableSplashScreen=false which just needs to be set to true. Save the file and the app will launch without the splash screen. This setting will be remembered as you upgrade the app, too.

Some apps include their own splash screen within the apps themselves (GIMP, LibreOffice, Scribus, etc). For these splash screens, there is sometimes an option within the Options of the app to disable it, a specific text file to modify, or a command line option to pass (which the PA.c Launcher can usually pass via the AdditionalParameters= setting in the INI file mentioned in the «Standalone» section above. You’ll need to check the app’s documentation from the publisher to be sure.
