Programs Wanted to work with PortableApps

WishList: Winzip, WinRar, Winamp, Mozilla Seamonkey, MagicISO, PowerISO,
UltraISO, Adobe Reader, Flash Player, SpyBot, CCleaner, Panda
Virus, Bitcomet, WinSPC, ShockWave Player, Camodo Firewall,
PeerGardian, Prevx, Hijack This, IrfanView, Rootkit Revealer.

Just for starters!

I did not give the URL for these, because a quick search
with Google will turn these applications at the top.

Welcome

Hey Toby, and welcome to PortableApps.com.

I did not give the URL for these, because a quick search
with Google will turn these applications at the top.

That is true, and if you do the same thing here with the PortableApps.com Search, you'll see almost everyone, if not everyone of these applications has already been requested.

It's not a piece of cake to make a portable application, so next time limit you reuest to only a couple of your favourites, to make it easier for developers to please you.

Right now, we actually only package Open Source applications here, as we get free hosting for them, so for most of those closed source applications you'll have to wait for a while yet.

I can help you with some of them however.

As for WinZip, 7-Zip and PeaZip are available from this site. At least try them, they're fantastic programs and I'm sure they will please you. Same goes for WinRAR, I believe both extract the RAR format.

As for all your ISO programs, we do feature InfraRecorder Portable, which is an absolutely fantastic open source DVD burner that can handle ISO's to a good degree.

For Mozilla SeaMonkey, there's a test launcher in the beta testing forums for it, but it won't be made official until there is a more stable release of SeaMonkey itself.

As for Adobe Reader, we have SumatraPDF Portable here in our applications section. It's deffinitely not as full featured as Adobe, but features a TOC, search, copy, and some other needed features. I can almost guarentee you'll never see Adobe Reader here.

As for WinAMP, check out VLC and MPlayer Portable, they're both fantastic, and VLC plays any format imaginable. Hopefully we'll have some more full out music library oganizing programs in the future.

As for CCleaner, it's portable itself (I think you just need to set it to use and INI the the settings), but there may be some launchers for it around, too.

For WinSCP, that one's right here in out application directory.

ClamWin Portable from this site is a pretty decent anti-virus application.

VLC Media Player Portable plays flash I believe.

I have a test of Deluge BitTorrent client in beta testing. (you'll find it by searching)

And as for IrfanView, SmithTech recieved permission to package it, and you'll find it at:

And

there is already a CCleaner portable version in their website, no need of an ini or a launcher anymore... Wink

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

Ahh

But of course some people have launcher fettishes. *guilty smile*

But I only use open source though. Smile

Thanks for straighting me out about what will and won't work.
I know I got a little too zealous! Thanks, again, -Teddy

I'm retired, but get more calls then I want to.
So I service PC's in my area. This tool makes
life much easier, (and handy!!)

There is another solution

In the development section, there is a program called portable app creator. It will attempt to make apps portable for you. Also, don't we both want Spybot Search and destroy portable. I'm surprised nobody made a launcher.

LoL

me too... but in the SP:S&D forums and here you can find instructions to make it portable without launcher (already runs out of your thumb drive)
