VSCodium Portable (FOSS Visual Studio Code)

Application: VSCodium
Category: Development
Description: VSCodium is a community-driven, freely-licensed binary distribution of Microsoft’s editor VS Code. Visual Studio Code is a source-code editor made by Microsoft for Windows, Linux and macOS. Features include support for debugging, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets, code refactoring, and embedded Git. Users can change the theme, keyboard shortcuts, preferences, and install extensions that add additional functionality.

Note to the PortableApps maintainers: I would love for this to become included in the Portable Apps catalogue.

1.78 update

I've just uploaded an update that upgrades the base app to v1.78.2.

This took longer than I wanted, but part of it was because there appeared to be some issues with the initial 1.78 release, which resulted in the VSCodium devs creating 3 releases over 2 days. I decided to wait a bit to create a more stable release.

Another change is that this release only supports 64-bit versions of Windows. This is because this version of VSCodium appears to have only been released for the AMD64 and ARM64 architectures. I'm not sure if this is temporary or a decision to permanently drop support. In either case, this version will not work on 32-bit versions of Windows. As a result, I will have the OP link to both the latest release as well as the last release that supported x86.

1.79 update

I've just uploaded an update that upgrades the base app to v1.79.1.

It appears that the lack of an x86 1.78 version was because of an error in VSCodium's build system. It was fixed for this release and so, the main upload now works with both x86 and x86-64 again.

I've also tried uploading a portable version of the arm64 version. This version does require the x86 emulation that is built into Win10 to run the PortableApps Launcher EXE. VSCodium itself, however, should run natively on arm64 processors. Please can anyone who has an ARM Windows device give this release a try and report your experience.

1.85 update

I've upgraded the base app to v1.85 for both the x86-64 and arm64 versions.

Otherwise, it appears that the VSCodium devs have now permanently ended support for x86 Windows versions. As a result, I have included the last x86 version that was compiled.

Otherwise, I still need people to confirm whether the arm64 version works, and report your experience.

Could you please pack it into

Could you please pack it into a .paf.exe instead of a 7zip? I guess this might be a prerequisite for it to be included in the Portable Apps catalog.

Can't do that right now

I would love to, but the PA Installer generator is failing for my portable app because it doesn't have a help.html file included. Unfortunately, I just don't have time to create the file at this time.
