7-z portable?

Well, I read many threads, but I didn't find anything with 7-z's portability.
Just want to know if it's portable, and where I can get a portable one if there is. Smile

By the way, can anyone tell me how to create a zip with 7-z?
The official site said it supports to pack a zip, but I still don't know how to do it after checking the whole program.

It isn't portable by default

But it is with the launcher I wrote for it. I was planning on releasing it soon anyway. I'll post it tomorrow.

~GUI

Open up '7zFM.exe' in the 7-Zip directory. Go to the file/folder you want to compress. Click 'Add (+)'. Choose .7z, .zip, etc. for a normal archive. Or, for a self-extracting one, check the 'Create SFX Archive' option.

~Command Line

Use 7z.exe; you'll have to Google the switch list.

Very true.

He is very right. I tried it and it works like a charm...
Found this in there, too.

"PROGRAM HISTORY / ABOUT THE AUTHORS
===================================
John T. Haller was the original author of Portable VLC, from which the most important part of this code was copied. Rob Loach made several modifications to Portable VLC to make it accomodate making WackGet portable, and then Tuxmouraille used it with him portablegrisbi script to make Portable7zip. All credit should go to John T. Haller."

Thought it might be of some interest. Wink

When'll it come out? jumps up and down eagerly

Some guesses

I think one part is changing the default "Working folder" location from "System temp folder" to "Current" at

Tools\Options\Plugins\Options\Folders

But I think there is another change where an .ini file is ultimately created...

Actually, you should get the NewAdvSplash plugin.
That's the new version

Am I missing something, or is the English version out now?

I don't want to appear thick, but is an English portable version of 7 zip out now?

Come down ..

OK, Lurking Biohazard if there's a nerd here then it must be you stupid fag!
If you had followed what had been going on regarding this thread, you wouldn't have written a brainless comment like yours.
Is this the official Lurking Biohazard thread? Bloody Hell no! So if you don't have anything constructive to say, dry up!
I edited my post which originally was very long, I just couldn't find a way to delete it in the first place so I just kept it and mentioned the fact the file had multiple languages included.

This was the original text:
--------------------------------------------------------------
7zip/Portable7zip-4.32-fr-0.3.0.4.zip... ( Loads of languages included BTW not just French )
I don't know, but you see for me calling an application "Portable" means it doesn't write anything to the registry. I have tried porting a couple of applications using QuickPortTemplate with PortableNSIS 1.5 ( thanks Deuce! ) and succeeded in a way. What I mean is this, whenever you launch 7zip ( in this case ) registry entries are made and whenever you exit the program, those entries are erased and saved locally ( [settings] 7-zip.reg ) fine!
OK, now I know this way you'll be able to keep your settings no matter which host computer you use but correct me if I am wrong, don't you need Admin privileges to be able to access/write to the registry? I mean applications that require those privileges.I'd like to be able to use those portable applications as "Guest User" not as Administrator.
The thing I am really looking forward is the so-called virtual registry ( Thinstall and hopefully mkPort pretty soon Smiling )
---------------------------------------------------------
Now, f*ck off!

Thank you for making my point!

Nerd is the user that posted above you. Do you really think that calling me a nerd would bother me?! You're funny!

Your edit just rehashed what had already been said before in this thread.

How old are you? 12? Grow up.

I rest my case

Alright, I am not 12 nor 42 but one thing I can do is being helpful and saying something like "This has been said already" just confirms the fact that you're not that kind.
I should have looked above regarding ( Nerd ), granted my bad. I really wanted to help here in translating apps/guides/tutorials seeing the fact that I speak 6 languages ...
Anyway, that was my last post here.

Well, before you start advocating anyone you should learn English grammar first ( replied and not replyed )
I wasn't complaining about anything, it was just a sort of misunderstanding and I wanted to take those "bad" words back but I simply couldn't edit my post.

7z Portable 4.40 beta

Hi all,

If anybody is interested, I've made a portable version of the 7z beta, with self-contained settings and even works on a "Instant" mode like Instant Filezilla. If you put the files in a similar configuration to other portable apps hosted here, it will act as a launcher, otherwise it will work as a self-contained app. This is so that if you have a newer version before I release one, it you just set it up yourself.

It will work side-by-side with an existing copy installed on the host computer, saving the host machines settings before applying its own, and restoring them when 7z closes.

John: Is it ok that I used the PortableApps.com splash screen? If not, please let me know and I'll change it. I'll also post the source code on the website for the launcher, and will put up a launcher-only version soon.

Edit: Rearranged the website, so some links had changed, and more stuff put up...

Website: http://pfeerick86.googlepages.com/7zportable
Direct Download (launcher package): http://pfeerick86.googlepages.com/7zPortable.exe
Direct Download (instant package): http://pfeerick86.googlepages.com/i7zPortable.exe
Source package: http://pfeerick86.googlepages.com/7zPortableSource.zip

regards,
Peter

Not a bad 1st one, Peter, not bad at all. I'll post more details in your other thread. Also, I've posted my 7-Zip Portable 4.42 Pre-Release so we can see if there's anything else not covered by mine or vice versa. We'll comment in your other thread on any differences and in my thread for anything missing from mine.

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