Yeah, I was thinking is there anything out there that could be the "portable version" of ABBY Finereader?

Not FOS but check this out

I have topOCR on my pendrive. It uses your camera as a scanner - Perfect for portable use. It is freeware. http://topocr.com/topocr.html

Edit: Just found this - http://jocr.sourceforge.net/

Thanks will check them

Thanks will check them out!

I've also managed to find some open source one at http://sourceforge.net/projects/tesseract-ocr/ ...

EDIT: By the way - where did you get the portable version of topOCR?

TopOCR portable

I use JauntePE to make many of my apps portable, it is run through a program called JPE autowizard. Very quick & simple, and it works in a similar way to ThinStall by redirecting registry calls to an isolated subfolder in the apps directory, however it will not work on every type of app.
There are not many reg changes done by TopOCR & maybe someone might like to make a portable launcher for it.
Here are the redirected reg Shots:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SubSystems\Tecf14\Eval]
"Date"=hex(1):33,00,32,00,33,00,3c,00,36,00,38,00,37,00,3b,00,00,00

It also creates a small ini file:
[Window Parameters]
GWinSizeX=426
GWinSizeY=512
GWinMoveX=320
GWinMoveY=256
