Anybody with the multiple line bookmark toolbar hack (I had it) will lose it in version 66.

@robzuc: see 'What is "portable"' on the "about" page: https://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php Not leaving stuff behind is not "stealth" in the parlance here, and uTorrent works fine when moving from machine to machine and saves your settings.

After i extracted uTorrent.exe 3.5.5 with 7-zip in the extracted folder there are couple of .dll files. Are they needed? Can i delete them?

@Peter202:

No, only file you need is Carrier.exe renamed to uTorrent.exe
And created settings.dat

Task Coach is a simple todo manager to keep track of personal tasks and todo lists.

In addition, it offers effort tracking, categories and notes.

Task Coach Portable includes a PortableApps.com format launcher to handle portablisation. X-Task Coach is also available from the download page.

Cross-platform (OS X, Linux, BSD and iOS) with synchronisation features available via the Funambol service.

There was a Crashpad issue causing the APPDATA directory to be left behind that was fixed in today's releases. I can't reproduce the others on any OS. Please post a complete bug report in the support forum here: http://portableapps.com/forums/support/other_apps We have hundreds of apps and bug reports as comments on another site often won't be seen and won't wind up being addressed, at least not in a timely manner.

Ennovy on 2016-04-08 13:42

@JohnTHaller: Thank you for the new release. Regarding the registry entries that are left behind I will post in the forum.

The PortableApps Platform has been updated (a few times) since this was last updated.
I believe the current version is 11.2 (also there is a version 12 beta, I think its Beta 2)

Please update this listing!

Latest version (v15.0) now supports .NET programs, the first of which appears to be KeePass Professional (or 2.x).
