Is this portable?

The MSI file linked to only allows me to install on my system drive, not on my thumb drive

Because you are looking at a request to make it portable, not a portable version.

Try this thread instead.

hi there. thanks a lot for

hi there. thanks a lot for the effort you've been making. it helps a lot of people like me. I have a concern though.
I tried to DL from your link (Downloads for SharpDevelop 4.4 (Frameworks 2.0 to 4.5.1)), followed the instructions.
It installed successfully. However, when I loaded the app and attempt to create a vb project with a windows form....
it did not load the typical IDE with its Toolbox that allows one to put objects on a Vb form.

I was wondering if there is something I'm missing in terms of setup or configuration. How do I make the ToolBox visible?
I was expecting to see something similar to this...

Thanks much in advance for the reply!! Smile

As this is a request topic, please start a new topic in the Beta Testing forum for your build, rather than only providing a link off-site.
