Softpedia: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Digital-Photo-Tools/cPicture.shtml
has an entry for an application named cPicture v.3.8.6 that is Freeware and Donationware

Web Site: http://cpicture.thecloudsite.net/

VirusTotal Score:
cPicture.exe 2-70
cpp_tiff_png.dll 1-68
All the other files are clean

Assuming that cPicture is not harmful
Unzip and run cPicture.exe (It seems that it is a no install app)
This application is very fast.
It leaves a couple of keys in the registry.

The cPicture v.3.8.6 and cPicture LE v1.6.x seem to be developed by the same developer(s).

cPicture now at version 3.8.8 and it is freeware/donationware.

Is the description of "How to extract" still valid? I ask because a lot has changed with the structure of directories and files.

Andrew Lee on 2023-06-02 09:04

@dmocha: I just downloaded the ZIP file for v9.0.1, and it seems the file/dir structure is still pretty much the same, so the extraction instruction should still be valid. Could you provide details on the diffs that you are seeing?

dmocha on 2023-06-04 08:20

@Andrew Lee: I have no objections. I'm just asking. I remember that quite a long time ago new folders and files arrived, and the procedure is still the same. That's why I'm wondering if it's up to date with these files.
I still follow this procedure and still use the portable version.

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

@__philippe thanks for the help I appreciate very much.

Well this has been here a very long time, this program has worked fine for my uses.I was looking for an older version from the website I found in Japanese, the problem was many of the Japanese words are spelled wrong which changes the meaning. :D

Useful small footprint PDF splitting tool.

Only would wish for slightly more specific changelogs, beside the usual, non-descript
"fixed some bugs"...;-)

Google Chrome Portable v126.0.6478.115 Updated

Stephen Leibowitz on 22 Jun 2024
  • 289MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Jun 2024
  • Suggested by JohnTHaller

Google Chrome is a web browser designed for simplicity and speed. Its minimalistic appearance and capabilities can be extended with themes and extensions. The program integrates with Google's tools and services, and can sync across other signed-in devices.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.

Google Chrome Portable is the PortableApps version of the program. It includes automatic support for jPortable to enable web-based Java apps. For users interested in the cutting edge, Beta and Development are also available. For Windows versions from XP to 8, see past versions.

Note: Starting in v125, Chrome silently stopped supporting portable versions, which noticeably stopped supporting portable printing (including saving as PDF). Starting in v126, Chrome Portable bypasses it by hardcoding the command line parameter --disable-features=PrintCompositorLPAC (see the disable-features command line).

Category:
Runs on:Win10 / Win11 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. Uses Windows' certificate manager, some Settings/Extensions Locked Per PC (see "App Notes" on website).
Unicode support: Partial
Path portability: Automatic compensation for dynamic drive letter in removable storage devices
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the portable installer and install to a folder of your choice. Launch GoogleChromePortable.exe.

NOTE:
  • Some settings are tied to individual computers and are not portable, including certificates and passwords. See this thread for more information.
  • Optionally, to run in a more stealthy mode (that is not anonymous), start with --incognito to dismiss local history and cookies after program close.

google sucks

Stephen Leibowitz on 2023-07-31 09:28

“Over the years [Chrome] has gained a reputation for being something of a resource hog, gobbling up your PC’s memory like it’s going out of style.” Starting with version 108, the Chrome desktop browser has a feature called Memory Saver that deactivates tabs that aren’t currently being used. When a user accesses a deactivated tab, it automatically reloads. A user can turn Memory Saver on or off. A user can also exclude specific sites from Memory Saver, keeping tabs for those sites active. See:

I've added a note (with references) that portable versions of Chrome are no longer supported. They still work, but with bypasses and an uncertain future.

Annoyingly, SysInternals' powers-that-be no longer deem worth their while to provide a changelog of their recent releases.

Current cases in point: ProcessMonitor v3.30, AutoRuns v13.62,

Sloppy version control management, if you ask me...:-(

On a positive point, they resumed adjusting correctly the internal PE tags version numbering of their updated utilities, which proved rather baffling for a while

(see smaragdus' related post:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=82073#p82073

Regrettably, some of SysInternals' recently updated tools now fail to run under WinXP......:-(
(e.g. Procmon v3.30 fails under winXP, despite the "Process Monitor runs on Windows XP SP2"
plain statement found in the Procmon.chm HTML help file)

Cases in point:
ProcessMonitor fails as of v3.30 (blue screen crash, last XP working version v3.20)
SigCheck fails as of v2.40 (last XP working version v2.30)

MIKLO on 2016-08-29 18:10

@ __philippe do you know is there gonna be any effort made to correct this? I'm kinda surprised cuz I have always thought of SysInternals as being a first rate top notch entity, but they are not showing that in this case.Even if the changelogs are only interesting or necessary to a few people in my opinion that reason enough to continue with accurate data.
