Opera Portable "private"

Submitted by Daniel0312 on February 2, 2022 - 4:11am

I do love private browsing.
To make it default OperaPortable behavior, I added an OperaPortable.ini in OperaPortable root folder, containing only AdditionalParameters=--private.
It works like a charm : when I start a new, empty instance it's in private mode.
Problem is, when I start OperaPortable.exe with an URL as parameter it starts in "normal", non-private mode.
I wonder if it's intended behavior or...

[Fixed] µTorrent (sometimes) leaves folder behind

Submitted by Daniel0312 on January 23, 2022 - 9:45am

I've been doing somes cleaning on my windows7 PC and came across what I now know as some µTorrent leftovers.
After cleaning up everything, I installed the latest version of uTorrentPortable ( then started it and then closed it...
Folder "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\uTorrent" was still present, containing one file. I checked the launcher.ini file and I understand it should have been deleted along with its content...
The other files created at runtime are deleted but one won't preventing I guess the deletion of the folder.

Every day, people use WhatsApp on their devices, but Threema is certainly known to very few.

Threema is a very secure messenger from Switzerland and I have been using it since Facebook took over WhatsApp.

For some time now, Threema is also available as a desktop application for Windows and I find it very handy when I'm on the PC.

Is it possible to offer Threema as a PortableApp?

Thanks for the answer and have a happy, new and especially healthy year 2022.

[Fixed] Problem with OperaGX Portable 82.0.4227.50

When it starts the next time, a message appears that an duplicate profile was found in the folder App\OperaGX and must be deleted ("Please ensure that no profile is stored in that location"). Otherwise the browser doesn't run. First I have to delete the additional profile, which is very annoying. The correct profile is located in the Data folder. This bug has been present in several versions. The problem does not occur with the permanently installed version.

OperaGX: Difference in handling commandline arguments when executed from console vs executed as subprocess from another process

I don't know the release version of the previous OperaGX launcher (the actual exe) but I could call Launcher.exe and feed it an unquoted url to have it open a new tab in an already running OperaGX. The last update somehow messed with that as it now opens a new OperaGX window which seemingly uses a totally different profile.

So I tried getting around this by simply calling OperaGXPortable.exe from within my program.
The funny thing is, if I pass an unquoted url, it ends up in OperaGX as a link with folder of the calling program prepended, like
