PortableApps.com - Your Digital Life, Anywhere


The PortableApps.com Launcher is a universal launcher to make almost anything portable. To make things portable, it needs to be told by a developer what to do. It gets this information from a file in the App\AppInfo\Launcher directory of a portable application package called AppNamePortable.ini, where AppNamePortable is the base name of the launcher executable.

Currently this manual is more of a reference manual than a how-to-do-things manual. To start with, read about Installing the PortableApps.com Launcher and Using the PortableApps.com Launcher Generator.

The most useful sections are the launcher.ini reference, covering all the options available for configuring the PortableApps.com Launcher without writing custom code, and the Using the PortableApps.com Launcher sections, covering things like Dealing with the registry and Making Java applications portable (not an exhaustive list).

(This document is far from complete at the moment. You should probably look at the start page to see a more general overview of what’s available.)
