Everything I have read online says that you should start with a "clean install" of the OS in order to begin to create a portable app.
I understand the reasons why, but obviously this is not necessarily an easy thing to do for a normal user.
So my question is can you use something like VMware to create a virtual machine with a freshly installed OS and create a portable app on a computer that is not a fresh install?
Can you explain the process? Where do you install the portable app software and where do you install the app? Both on the virtual machine I assume?
Thanks for any help!
