Outdated Official Portable Applications

Welcome to the PortableApps.com outdated apps tracker. Please post a comment for any outdated official apps that aren't already listed. Before posting, please make sure that their stable Windows build is available and they have been announced by their publisher (just being available on a 3rd party site or FTP server doesn't count as the app may not yet be official). Comments will be deleted as they are added. Bug reports or requests for updates of unofficial apps released as development tests should be made as comments in the post for those apps. This list is maintained by Kenny Williams (scriptdaemon) as well as the PortableApps.com admins.

Pre-Releases and Betas
These apps need someone like you to test them out before they can be released.

Work In Progress
These apps are being worked on. Current status is listed where available.

  • Audacity 2.1.0 (John building...)
  • WinPenguins 0.76 (John building...)
  • Wise Registry Cleaner 8.42

External Dependencies
These apps have something outside our control getting in the way of being updated.

  • 4st Attack 2.1 - Windows build unavailable **
  • Cornice 0.6.2 - Windows build unavailable **
  • Dia 0.97.3 - Windows build unavailable **
  • Eraser 6.x - See .NET Apps Note*, will be 'EraserProPortable' or Eraser .NET
  • Free Download Manager 3.9.4.1485 - Breaks local Chrome settings
  • FreeFileSync 6.3 and later - Process bug in 6.3 through 6.14
  • Fyre 1.0.1 - Windows build unavailable **
  • Gramps 4.x - Windows builds still unstable
  • IcoFX 2.x - This is a paid version of the app
  • K-3D 8.0.2 - Windows build unavailable **
  • KeePass 2.x - See .NET Apps Note*, will be 'KeePassProPortable' or KeePass .NET
  • Listary 4.x - App asks for admin rights and will crash if not given (on Options - Apply or exit)
  • LMarbles 1.0.8 - Windows build unavailable **
  • Pathological 1.1.3 - Windows build unavailable **
  • SmartDeblur 2.x - This is a paid version of the app

* .NET Apps: PortableApps.com does not yet list .NET apps in our directory. .NET-based apps will not work on most public PCs (net cafe, hotel business center, library, etc) as these PCs generally run Windows XP and do not have .NET installed. Unlike Java, .NET can not be legally portablized. So, .NET apps won't work unless the PC has the proper .NET library, which you can't determine until you try to run the app. To avoid confusing most end-users, .NET apps will be listed in a special section of the PA.c Directory with an explanation of this issue shortly.

** Windows build not up to date: These cross-platform apps have later versions for other platforms but not Windows, so they are up to date. If you are able, some publishers may need assistance building Windows versions.

no AIO

Gramps Portable isn't based on Gramps AIO.
Never was, and it isn't planned for the future.

The gramps developers will drop python 2 support for next release (4.2 in 2 or 3 months).
I won't spend any time or effort to find a working python 2 environment for 4.1.2 now. And Gramps with python 3 needs some testing.

Next planned Gramps Portable release is 3.4.9 (with stable environment).

Could We Switch?

Could we switch to the official AIO releases? It does run without being installed just by modifying the resource-path file within %GRAMPSFOLDER%\lib\python2.7\site-packages\gramps\gen\utils to be %GRAMPSFOLDER%\shared. I haven't tried redirecting the data locations or anything, just checking if it works without installation and without any registry keys.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I won't

I won't switch for legal reasons:

  • last time I checked Graphviz license wasn't GPL compatible
  • the packager said something like this on mailing list years ago:
    I fix GTK and other libraries when needed, I don't keep track of my changes.

License Compatibility and Separation

If the EPL and GPL code is not intermingled and they are kept and executed separately, I think you can legally have code from the two making up a larger application. In this case, it appears that the EPL code is separately executable Python instructions. You couldn't compile them into the same EXE or DLL, of course, but you can compile them into separate EXEs that pass data back and forth. We have lots of apps that have our GPLed launcher handling the process of portablizing a GPL incompatible app.
