Blender Portable stores data locally

Hello everyone.
After configuring Blender on my PC, I went to another one, and I discovered all my settings weren't there!
Blender Portable still stores data locally, while it should use its own folder. I also tried VLC, SeaMonkey and LibreOffice, no problems with any of them.
Maybe this pages will help:
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/advanced/blender_directory_lay...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Working Here

It's working here. I set line width to Thin and disabled the splash screen on my Win10 x64 machine and moved it to a Win11 x64 virtual machine. Settings were preserved.

What OS are you on, full path, and which settings aren't saving for you? Note that the old Win32 version may not read the Win64 settings.

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

I tried with Wine/XUbuntu,

I tried with Wine/XUbuntu, but Wine is 32 bits, so maybe that's the problem.
By the way, I can't store AddOns.

Iffy

WINE support for something like Blender is going to be a bit iffy. We haven't tested it and don't list it as compatible on the Blender Portable homepage. We're using environment variables to direct Blender on where to save:

BLENDER_SYSTEM_CONFIG=%PAL:AppDir%\system\config
BLENDER_SYSTEM_SCRIPTS=%FullAppDirScripts%
BLENDER_TEMP=%TEMP%
BLENDER_USER_CONFIG=%PAL:DataDir%\user_config
BLENDER_USER_SCRIPTS=%PAL:DataDir%\user_scripts
BLENDER_USER_DATAFILES=%PAL:DataDir%\user_datafiles
TMP=%TEMP%

The 32-bit version of Blender is abandoned and they only support 64-bit now. We include the last version (2.80) to help users move around. Can you figure out where it's saving it in WINE?

Not at the moment.

Not at the moment.
Please, can you confirm AddOns are stored in the Portable App storage?

Should

It should, yes. And there have been no reports of otherwise from non-WINE users.

Wine Version

As with your other topic, have you checked your Wine version? Many distros are still shipping the old 5.0.x release but I've found 6.0 to work much better.
