How to make Thunderbird truly Portable

just installed Thunderbird Portable Version: 55.0b2 (32-bit) onto a 32GB memory stick. Set it up fine on my desktop pc, all working. Put stick in another pc, run thunderbird.exe from stick and up comes a new installation, not my emails and email accounts. How do I make it truly portable and pick up my emails from any pc using my stick. Help would be appreciated, thanks. Mike. ps. running Windows 10 on both computers.

Don't run thunderbird.exe

You need to run ThunderbirdPortable.exe, as this is our wrapper executable that makes the program portable.
