In short, junctions are older technology. Support for junctions arrived in Windows 2000, whereas symlinks are supported starting from Windows Vista.

Junctions can only point to directories, while symlinks can also point to files.

Just a quick note of confirmation here: portable or not, Discord is Electron based, right? :?

OT: yay for post 3777! :mrgreen:

I didn't realize there was so many portable Discords, I've been using this method. https://github.com/TeejMonster/Discord-PortableApps

Thanks for that. I have added a bit more to the entry.

Older versions of the crazy-max launcher used symbolic link to sorta fool discord to save and read the settings in the program folder instead of User/AppData/Roaming/ (but a symlink fake folder thing remains here pointing towards the discord launcher folder). The latest version now just overrides USERPROFILE env var and it seems to work. Not sure how it works but it does. Must be a Golang thing.

Demon.Devin PAF launcher uses Junctions instead of Symlink. I still have a hard time grasping the difference between a junction and symlink....

There's also janky batch file launchers by MarioMasta64 which includes discord https://github.com/MarioMasta64/EverythingPortable
I found you guys and this thread thanks to the referring sites/domains on my GitHub project page. Thanks for showing interest in my work. It makes me happy to know that there is people actually trying out my portables apps.

I tried sharing my Discord PAF on PortableApps.com and I haven't gotten any feedback except for one person who said it was working flawlessly without any bugs (which was cool but I thought I'd hear more than that).

Could you link to the thread in question? The PA admin drops by here from time to time and it might make tracking back your effort easier.

Version 0.0.298-14 of crazy-max's wrapper is available.

However, I'm going to hold updating the database entry for now. Whopping 32 AVs say that the latest version is infected, and I'll rather believe them.

ROFL, yeah something is up with that for sure. Like it might not be of malicious intent, but if it's an unofficial program that can log voice/key strokes and send them over a server... it's basically a Trojan.

Why not use my version? With my Discord Portable, when Discord updates, so does the PAF package. So in other words, you only ever need to install it once. During every launch when Discord updates itself, the portable code, like my GitHub Desktop Portable, will take care of the rest and delete the old version.

Golang seems to often trigger false positives kinda like AutoIt. It looks like it has been resolved https://github.com/portapps/discord-por ... -345525554

We can link to both versions maybe?

I updated the entry to version 0.0.298-15 and added a link to demon.devin's wrapper.
