Installing the PortableApps.com Launcher

This document will get you up and running with the PortableApps.com Launcher.

To use the PortableApps.com Launcher, you will need to download and install the PortableApps.com Launcher and NSIS Portable (the Unicode variant). These two are enough for using the PortableApps.com Launcher Generator (see below) and also for using the more advanced features like developing extra features with custom code or debugging.

For NSIS Portable to be automatically detected, install it to a sibling directory of the PortableApps.com Launcher, as NSISPortable. If you are using the PortableApps.com Platform, this will happen automatically; their recommended installation paths are X:\PortableApps\PortableApps.comLauncher and X:\PortableApps\NSISPortable.

Using the PortableApps.com Launcher Generator

The PortableApps.com Launcher Generator is the way to generating a build of the PortableApps.com Launcher with an app’s icon, name and if desired, custom code.

Once you have installed the PortableApps.com Launcher and NSIS Portable as instructed above, you can run it from the installation directory (PortableApps.comLauncherGenerator.exe) or from the PortableApps.com Platform.

If you run into trouble using the PortableApps.com Launcher Generator, you can ask for help.
