Which JAR to load from jPortable?

I have installed jPortable 31.1 and JavaPortableLauncher on my desktop. When I called JavaPortableLauncher.exe, a window popped up, asking which Jar file I wished to open. I navigated to the Java\Lib directory via the window, but I did not have a clue as to which file to open. Please could someone advise me how I should proceed from there?

I have intended to use JavaPortableLauncher to call jPortable so I could use my locally installed Firefox (not a portable one) and other apps that may require the presence of JRE, and so that I could do away with a local install of JRE version 24 I have on my desktop.

Many thanks.

Java applications are packaged in JARs and can be run. jPortable Launcher is for running individual Java apps, not embedded apps in web pages. Installing Firefox Portable alongside jPortable will let you do that. A local copy of Firefox can't use jPortable.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thank you, Mr. Haller. I will have a try at installing a FirefoxPortable so I may take advantage of a jPortable app.
