    Your download link just links straight back to this thread, so nobody can download the installer.

    This is fantastic, thank you!

    I had set up Zotero to use as a portable app with LibreOffice and the firefox connector so that I had a working desktop for research and writing on a thumb drive.

    Then all was shot to hell with the new version of FF

    You have saved my bacon, thank you!

    I'll report issues if and when they happen, please keep up your fantastic work.

    thx

    Thanks a lot for this comment Smile I recognize myself in your words. My problem was similar and with quantum & zotero 5, everything was thrown away. I made this version for me, so why not share it and learn stuff when doing it?

    When update is available,

    When update is available, Zotero will ask user to reboot to apply update. If the user clicks 'yes', Zotero will show an error saying that profile cannot be loaded. And it will create folders in %appdata% and in %localappdata%.

    This is expected, as when re-starting, Zotero won't use the launcher... But, is there a workaround that I can use in the launcher.ini options? Blocking the update, or force the launcher to be used when re-starting?

    Block update

    As you're providing updates yourself, I recommend blocking the update as described here: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/36581/disable-check-for-updates

    Your opinion?

    Thanks. I modified those lines in App\Zotero\defaults\preferences\prefs.js as follows:
    user_pref("app.update.auto", false);
    user_pref("app.update.enabled", false);

    It's working, but can I have a feedback here? Is it the best way to do it? Wouldn't it better to add a user.js or modify the prefs.js in the profile rather than in the program itself? If yes, I don't really know how to do it as such file in DefaultData folder won't work...

    Working, but need fix for multiple profiles

    Thanks for this, seems to work fine.
    I'm working on an install with multiple profiles (start with -P flag).
    Only issue is that I needed to comment out the command line argument for datadir and turn back on the option to allow it to be user set in the profile.
    This seems to revert back to the behaviour of creating a folder in the Windows user directory (I saw your post in the Zotero forum re this).
    Not critical for me at this time, but figured I'd say thanks, and mention this minor issue (I doubt many people are running multiple profiles).

    Hi !

    Hi !

    Thanks for your feedback. I'm personally using two profiles for Zotero, and I'm not experiencing your issue, since I'm using two Portable Zoteros!
    That's the most convenient way I found (for me) not to leave traces on the computer running the program...
    The only problem is that it uses twice the 100+MB that the program needs Beee But I personally don't care.

    I think your can workaround something with a batch file modifying the ZoteroPortable.ini at each run... I did this for a while before Zotero 5.

    Instead of moving all the files, maybe use symbolic link instead?

    Admin rights?

    Would love to. But doesn't it require admin rights?

    It Does

    Symbolic links require admin rights. As such, they can't be used for apps which don't themselves require admin rights due to their nature (system tools, etc).

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

    Thx John

    Thanks John. That's what I read when packaging my first Zotero portable.
