(Re)Starting KODI PortableApp

My big respect to mwayne (Mike Wodarczyk) (re)starting to make KODI an PortableApp ! You didn't add this to your long list of Development Test Releases https://portableapps.com/node/39243 till now.

There was alredy a try from jpoul with "XBMC Portable 11.0 Dev Test 2 (2011-11-23)"
https://portableapps.com/node/29389

Also big discussions are on the official KODI-Forum "PortableApps.com USB Edition portable version of XBMC for Windows":
http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=33373&page=4

I hope the KODI-Developers are also finally interested to do a real PortableApp Wink

Has it worked before? If yes backup your profiles.xml in Data/portable_data/userdata and delete it.

That's bad

What does your Kodi.log in Data/portable_data say? Could be incompatible hardware or not update to date software.

It works now on WIN10-32bit

I was installing the "not portable" kodi-16.1-Jarvis.exe with type of install: "Minimal". After starting, the same error occurred - see above. Minimal does not install Microsoft Visual C++ packages 2008 + 2010 + 2013, which was not already on my laptop.
After installing kodi-16.1-Jarvis.exe with type of install: "Normal" and then immediately de-installing it, the Microsoft Visual C++ packages stayed on my laptop. And now Kodi-Portable starts without problems Wink

It works now on WIN7-32bit

On my WIN7-32bit PC, Microsoft Visual C++ packages 2013 was missing. So i downloaded vcredist_x86.exe from Microsoft and installed it. Now KodiPortable runs also here.

Error

When click to open from PApps menu, a windows popup with tittle "XBMC: Fatal error" and message "Uh oh, can't load sqlite3.dll, exiting"

I have Kodi on my system and installed version runs without problem (downloaded from windows store). I checked and sqlite3.dll is not in the system but it's on PortableApps\KodiPortable\App\Kodi\system\python\DLLs path.

This is up to date Windows 10 on 1 Tb Hd, AMD A8, 8 Gb RAM system and PApps ar not in an external USB but in a second partition.

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

Dependencies

What version of Kodi have you installed? 16.1 aka “Jarvis” depends on VS2008, VS2010 and VS2013. 17.0 aka "Krypton" needs VS2015. If you have 17.0 installed, 16.1 won't work unless you install the missing Visual C++ Redistributable packages. See what Sandrito did a few posts above: https://portableapps.com/comment/229386#comment-229386

Maybe @John can help me include the missing VC runtime libraries to avoid errors.

I installed jarvis on my 64bit system and it runs with no problem. The one with problems is the portable version.

Then it installed the VC runtime libraries for 64-bit and not 32-bit which the portable version needs Wink

VC 32-bit vs 64-bit

As a reminder, the visual C libraries are separate for 32-bit vs 64-bit. So, if you installed Kodi 64-bit on your machine, it's possible the 32-bit portable version which is missing one of the 32-bit VC libraries bundled will fail. I install the app in a clean Win7 VM and then monitor what VC libraries it installs to determine what to bundle.

I don't have time to assist directly at the moment, too many apps to build and release.

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

Not needed

Kodi will run on 32-bit and 64-bit systems. That's the reason for doing a 32-bit only. You can install it wherever you want, e.g. C:\PortableApps\KodiPortable. Just start the above mentioned KodiPortable.exe. Wink

Kodi 17.1 & FreeTelly 16.1 (Kodi fork)

Thanks for your great work, but it's not updated to the latest kodi version.
Here is the new version 17.1, portabilised by thumbapps.org and also a Kodi.tv fork named FreeTelly (based on Jarvis 16.1 and contains many addons)
Kodi Portable 17.1 Krypton
FreeTelly Portable (Kodi fork) 16.1 Jarvis

I have seen bugs with your version of Kodi Portable and also with thumbapps.org version when I use my USB 2.0 key but not with my USB 3.0, this is probably a speed issue, maybe...

Failed exit

Sorry to hear. This is probably because it didn't exit properly and so the launcher couldn't do his job. I'll add to preserve this directory on install to prevent data loss in the future.

Win 10 x64 Creators

Both 16 and 17.0 work fine confirmed not seen 17.1 till now,

Can also confirm Ports are working with my main Media Server EMBY with integrations via Emby with Kodi SYNC.

Never been fond of Kodi but the portable makes it much better now. Repos current work, iptv, streams not had a error

All of these are with FreeTelly Port as well

TY for doing this

Kodi Portable 17.3 Dev Test 1 Issues

The app works great, however, after a week or so the app deletes addons and build configuration. It opens to a fresh copy of Kodi Portable 17.3. Is there a fix? Will you be releasing the final version? Version 17.1 had the same issues. Version 17.0 and Version 16.1 did not have this issue. Please advise.

Kodi 18 Leia

Firstly many thanks for your very welcome work with Kodi Portables. I was wondering if there is any chance of a Test Portable Version of Kodi 18. The latest nightly versions are very stable and far better than Kodi 17.5. Thanking you in advance.

So I know there is a way of upgrading Kodi without losing your configuration. Does anyone know which folders to move?

force close is hard on portable data

when the app is closing, the movement of portable_data folder taking a lot of time when you have a lot of ad-dons and other stuff, for me the folder is 1GB. and in cases just get deleted altogether!
maybe anther way of saving portable data is needed?

maybe use symlink as the way instead of moving the folder around.
as symlink is available since windows vista, and kodi 18.3 is for vista and up, i don't see any disadvantage.

Just for the sake of it: THANKS

This just works for me!

Edit: jo, it has dependencies and is not completely portable, but it does work as a portable for me in a sense of a "portable"

THX

I have done it myself - and tried in SyMenu, but doesnt work at all.
just get it done by itself by editing its config file.
thx

I know why kodi isnt to be liked here. its because of security and dependencies or how you would call it....
but if you are interested in international TV Stations, there is no other way around.
Get your K-Lite full Codec pack (perhaps in a VM) and a decent computer and you are done.

I love this portable kodi app and use it frequently, however, I am stuck on 18.9 since I am unable to add any new builds on the 19 version. Has anyone had any success? Maybe, I am doing something wrong. Any help is appreciated!
