XAMPP FileZilla Server NOT Portable.

If I understand this right the FTP server (FileZilla) in XAMPP needs to install a Windows service to run. This would install in Windows on my PC and not my USB stick.

I hope I'm wrong, can anyone clarify?

XAMPP FileZilla Server NOT Portable - Correct

XAMPP does install several files on your computer including the windows register.

It installs and then uninstalls the service. So, it is admin only. This is a limitation of FileZilla.

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