Do you know of one?

Hi, and welcome to Portable Apps.

Generally, this forum is for requesting that specific apps be made portable, rather than just for hunting for apps.

However, in the case of MS Publisher, I'm not sure that there even is such an application. It has been asked about before in the OpenOffice.org support forum, and the best solution was to use a site called Zamzar to convert it to some other format.

The thread is here http://portableapps.com/node/11416 and there is a link in it to the converter site.

If you (or anyone else) does know of a Publisher compatible OpenSource app, please feel free to let us know

Except that it doesn't read PUB files

nice app - portable version at http://portableapps.com/node/9727

But it isn't compatible with MS Publisher, it just happens to also be a desktop publishing app.

So is doesn't actually do what the OP said they wanted.

Scribus

Scribus is listed as Open Source alternative for MS Publisher on osalt. I don't know if it's compatible though.
