Inkscape is a vector graphics editor and an open altnerative to commercial apps like Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X. Useful for branding, icons, web design, publishing, and even illustrated maps, it supports features like shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, patterns, and grouping. Uses the open W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format, as well as exporting to other vector-based and standard image types like PNG. Imports formats such as JPEG, PNG, and TIFF.

Inkscape Portable is a portable wrapper distributed by the publisher using the PortableApps.com format. Alternatively, X-Inkscape is another wrapper that writes settings to the application folder.

It writes several entries into the registry (version X-InkScape_0.45.1_rev4). If you deny it access to the registry it crashes (vista).

@Charlotte: This is probably to be expected. A portable wrapper will help to migrate settings from/to the registry created by the application, but it does not stop the application from writing to the registry.

I had a problem running it... didn't want to let it change my settings. However, you can comment out the references to the registry in X-Inkscape.ini and then it boots up just fine.

I would recommend instead of X-Inkscape, my own Inkscape Portable - http://portableapps.com/node/16491; due to some fiddly work, I've got around the APPDATA storage thing, and it is completely stealthy. Nothing will be left behind.

Now I would really recommend my own Inkscape Portable above any other form of portable Inkscape. It's supported by Inkscape.org and PortableApps.com as the official portable edition of Inkscape and is available from http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/inkscape_portable or http://inkscape.org/download/. It's also apparently smaller than the WinPenPack version (just going by figures, I haven't downloaded theirs).

The X-Inkscape link points to http://inkscape.org/. Furthermore now is only available a winPenPack stable version (and not also a beta) at this link http://www.winpenpack.com/en/download.php?view.39. Please, edit the entry. Thank you.

V0.48.2
