Download the 7z package and extract.
Create a subfolder named VacuumIM in the app folder.
Launch vacuum.exe.

Portable but not stealth. Leaves the usual QT trash in the registry.

Looks pretty good ... one point:

> Consistent off saving messages (mode OTR)

Something lost in the translation ... OTR is a security feature for encrypted messages with some other goodies. It seems to have become the standard for encrypted messaging.

There appears to be an English site here:
https://code.google.com/p/vacuum-im/ Edit: moved: https://github.com/Vacuum-IM

Cross-platform with versions for both Linux and Mac.

Another interesting option is Psi+, the development branch of Psi IM (a portable version of Psi was already submitted here).

Image

Download a 7z package from here: http://code.google.com/p/psi-dev/downloads/detail?name=psi-plus-0.15.5253-win32.7z&can=2&q=
From the Wiki page:
Quote:
Question 4: How to make Psi+ portable under MS Windows?

Answer 4: To get Psi+ working in portable mode, you have several options:

Copy a folder PsiData from C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME% to C:\Program Files\Psi+ and start Psi+ via the script psi-plus-portable.bat.
Convert psi-plus.exe to psi-plus-portable.exe using the script make-psi-plus-portable.bat directly in the working Psi+ folder and then run psi-plus-portable.exe.


In the Downloads page you'll find the latest Plugins Package and, not included in this package, the latest OTR Plugin.

License: GNU GPL v2

As well as Vacuum IM, it's portable but not stealth, for the same reasons.
