Ulitmaker Cura 3.6

Program: Ultimaker Cura 3.6

Personal: I prefer 3.6 over the latest. Very stable and better UI. I tried to learn to make this into a portable app but I am way over my head. I would really like to see this app for Papps. I am not sure if it is possible to be portable.
All I have done is downloaded the source file and extracted the installer.exe but I just don't understand at all what to do to get the app to run portably.
The info above in the "other" section is to give some more context on what type of program Cura is if not familiar.
