Create exe file

How do you create the exe file in the portableapp main directory? Do you simply copy the executable of the app or do you convert a batch file that launches the executable of the app, or neither of these?
I'm new to portableapps and I can't find a comprehensive guide explaining how to make an app portable from beginning to end.

PortableApps Development

Try the development section of the site: https://portableapps.com/development That Section covers the whole process, with very detailed guides.

Solved

Thank you. I hadn't understood I should use the PortableApps launcher for that. Out of curiosity, do you know which tools were used before the PortableApps Launcher came into play?

NSIS (nullsoft scriptable

NSIS (nullsoft scriptable install system) was and still is used
Portableapps.com launcher generator requires NSIS to be present nearby to be able to run
this info is on this site somewhere but I forgot where exactly )
