Windowed patch variant

In case it doesn't work well with video conferencing softwares (due to forced fullscreen mode), the windowed patch variant can also be downloaded here. Delete everything inside App\OpenBoard and extract the patched variant there. Also rename OpenBoardW.exe to OpenBoard.exe if needed.

However, some fullscreen apps like PowerPoint works just fine with video conferencing softwares. So only use it if you have problem (or hate forced fullscreen mode).

Possibly Virus?

First this creates error messages, that it may be infected with a virus. After installing this on a VM, this creates a strange service in Windows, that produces a lot of CPU load.

It is called AarSvcxxxx - where xxxx is a number. When I stop this service, and delete it from the registry after next restart there is another service with the same Name, but xxxx is another number. So the only question in my eyes is - bitcoin miner or serious virus?

I'm pretty sure something else on your system caused it

Sorry for the late reply, I take the file directly from official source and package them using unmodified PAF installer too. Which file is detected as virus? I'm using Windows Defender and it works just fine.

Also, AarSvc is a legitimate Windows service related to Cortana and has nothing to do with OpenBoard. However, it doesn't exist on my Windows 10 since I'm using (older) LTSC release. By that logic, if AarSvc is installed when using the installer, it should exist on my Windows too.

If you're unsure just unzip the installer manually and take the only required files (AppNamePortable.ini, Custom.nsh, DefaultData), then download OpenBoard and compile the PortableApps.com launcher by yourself.

File missing

In folder /OpenBoardPortable-dev-test1/App/OpenBoard
file vcruntime140.dll is missing
I found it among my system files. I added it in /OpenBoardPortable-dev-test1/App/OpenBoard folter.
It works.

I already noticed that

Actually I already noticed that since the beginning. However, as far is I remember, vcruntime140.dll is not bundled in the official package by default. I'm kinda unsure about the license at first but I guess it is ok to ship that on next release.

Hello and thank you for your

Hello and thank you for your work.

I tried it on our Promethean-Boards today and it worked right away from my USB-Stick. There are no viruses reported to me nor are there any suspicious services created.

The only issue I ran into is, that the interface is partly unreadable because it seems to be not scaled properly. I wonder if this has something to do with the portable version or if it is a problem with the high resolution of the board and open board per se. I will check back when our support has been kind enough to install open board on the system. Sometimes it's frustrating to not have access to the system even if you are an administrator.

Hello, sorry for my late reply

Hello, sorry for my late reply (I rarely check this forum).

By default, Openboard use scaling settings provided by the system. In case it's not scaled properly, you still can modify the css file manually, please refer to this wiki for potential workaround. Sorry I can't do much since it seems to be an upstream issue and I never test it on special devices.

In case you're using Windows 10, there's a built-in Whiteboard app which has similar feature as Openboard.

New version 1.6.1

Hi,

there is a new version of openboard available. Are you going to make a portable version of it too? -Can you guide me to some help pages where I can find instructions on how to create portable apps myself?

Kind regards
Mr Flow

I'm dropping the support, sorry

My bad, it has been long time since I opened this forum. Unfortunately, I can't maintain it actively since I'm using Linux now. However, you can try this release made by Gord Caswell.

If you want to update it manually in the future, just extract the latest release from GitHub and place it on "OpenBoardPortable/App/OpenBoard" folder. You may need UniExtract to extract files from an executable (exe) in case 7-Zip can't extract it.
