LibreOffice Portable v5.4.4 Updated

  • Released on 9 Jan 2018
  • Suggested by JohnTHaller

LibreOffice is a complete productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, database, drawing tool and more. Includes strong compatibility for 100s of file formats including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio etc.). The program is similar to OpenOffice, a program that it was derived from, but has added many new features and improvements.

LibreOffice Portable is a special build developed in conjunction with the publisher. A "Still" version that's more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities is available via the website link. On systems without Java installed, some functions such as document creation wizards and the Base database application etc. can be enabled by adding jPortable, though this is optional and can be skipped if those functions are not needed. Alternatively, X-LibreOffice is also available.

Cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros) and supports a variety of extensions. A more stable "Still" version is available from the website link.

@zorro

You pointed to the LO 5.4 Release Notes and that's what I was referencing, here it is... bullet point 3...

Latest version 5.4.3 works perfectly on My WIn7 system.
I have not updated any plugins, (Microsoft Visual C++) etc so it seems there was something else that caused no text in the interface (GUI).

Note: Winpenpack says You need Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package on Windows XP.

LibreOffice series 5.4 are supposed to be the last version supported by WinXP.

JohnTHaller on 2017-12-02 06:04

The required Visual C++ runtimes are included within LibreOffice Portable 5.4.3 from PortableApps.com so it will work out of the box on Windows XP.

jPortable v8 Update 152 Updated

billon on 9 Nov 2017
  • 157MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Nov 2017
  • Suggested by Checker

jPortable (formerly Java Portable) allows you to easily add a Java runtime environment to your portable device. It can be used in combination with jPortable Launcher to open Java JAR programs (many with their settings made portable) or used automatically with Java-enabled apps like PortableApps.com versions of LibreOffice and OpenOffice as well as web browsers like Chrome/Chromium, Opera, SeaMonkey and Firefox.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware / Partially Open Source
How to extract: Download the EXE and install to the folder CommonFiles\Java relative to the applications that use Java. For example:
  • If you have installed LibreOffice to Z:\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
  • Similarly, if you have installed the Java Portable Launcher in Z:\PortableApps\JavaPortableLauncher, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
Java programs can be launched via batch files as well (thanks to user bro).

I've got jPortable working with X-LibreOffice as well. :)

E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib>dir /a
Volume in drive E is OHJELMAT
Volume Serial Number is A4D5-8D47

Directory of E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib

02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> .
02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> ..
30.01.2011 10:36 <DIR> 7za
02.03.2011 20:19 <JUNCTION> Java [E:\CommonFiles\Java]
0 File(s) 0 bytes
4 Dir(s) 12 645 406 208 bytes free

The trick is that E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java is a junction that points to E:\CommonFiles\Java. This way the content of E:\CommonFiles\Java shows up in E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java.

freakazoid: jPortable can work independently of PA programs, including muCommander and some others I've tested. I tried to edit the entry to help give some idea of how to make that work.

DocFetcher v1.1.19

billon on 11 Jan 2017
  • 51MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • Suggested by vixay

DocFetcher indexes your computer, making the contents of a wide variety of files instantly searchable. Selecting a search result shows a preview of the file with text highlighted and without formatting. You can filter results by location, file type, minimum and/or maximum filesize, and more. The program can index Microsoft Office, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, PDF, RTF, EPUB, HTML, and more formats from drives, external volumes, archive files, and Outlook .PST files.

Cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux.

Note: DocFetcher requires that you add folders/drives that you want to view before searching. See the "Basic Usage" section of the homepage for a few intro steps. When adding to the search scope, make sure to check "Store relative paths if possible"

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Java Runtime Environment 1.7 or higher, see forum for use with Java Portable
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Eclipse Public License
How to extract: Download the "portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch DocFetcher.exe.

If you see a memory error (very rare): either reduce the size/number of files indexed, or do the following (64-bit users only):

  1. In a text editor, edit misc\DocFetcher.bat so that the last line reads -Xmx4096m
  2. Move this file to the main folder
  3. Save and launch DocFetcher.bat, ignoring DocFetcher.exe from now on

What's new? Features:
  • Polish GUI translation.
  • DocFetcher now ships with Windows launchers with up to 8 GB of memory. Note that more than 1 GB requires a 64-bit Java runtime.
  • Advanced settings:
    • Option for disabling the text preview. This is useful for searching the contents of very large text files;
    • New entry AllowIndexRenaming for hiding the “Rename Index” context menu entry in the Search Scope pane.
Changes:
  • The comments in the DocFetcher.bat file were printed in the command prompt.
Bugfixes:
  • Crashes:
    • During startup saying “invalid sash weights”;
    • On certain CHM files;
    • On RTF files containing images;
    • IndexOutOfBoundsException;
    • NullPointerException during indexing;
    • When trying to rename a folder beneath an index (i.e. a top-level folder). Now the renaming operation is only enabled for indexes;
    • Under certain circumstances when clicking on the buttons in the toolbar above the preview pane.
  • Fixed Outlook PST indexing issues.
  • Directory paths as long as or longer than 260 characters were incorrectly identified as NTFS junctions, causing some directories to be ignored during indexing.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

IECacheView reads the cache folder of Internet Explorer and displays the list of all files currently stored. For each cache file, the following is displayed: Filename, Content Type, URL, Last Accessed Time, Last Modified Time, Expiration Time, Number Of Hits, File Size, Folder Name, and full path of the cache filename. The information can be easily saved to a text/html/xml file, or copied to the clipboard and pasted to another application, like Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheet.
