Thanks for packaging this up, Ken. No changes other than some minor help/readme fixes and adding the splash screen.

There's another error above: the second line says LAN Messneger Portable instead of LAN Messenger Portable.

as I understand Qualia do not update this messenger anymore, can anybody suggest me portable alternatives with Terminal Services support?
I've tried Softros Is this tool has portable version?

It doesn't matter if it's not updated if it continues to work properly.

Thanks for the portable version of the app, but you can tell me how I can get the source code? I am trying to open two instances of the application, but returns error that there is already another running. I'm using different IPs because I run one machine with Aster, and even as the sandbox, it returns the message. I would just allow multiple instances. Something we do in Firefox with "AllowMultipleInstances = true".

The app itself has to allow multiple instances. It does not. The launcher is already configured to allow you to run another instance. But the app locks a given port and then the second instance will error.

Every Open Source PortableApps.com App's page has links to the source near the bottom of the page under the "Download Details" section.
For LAN Messenger Portable that section is here.
