Works perfectly in Win 10, saves soooooooooooooooo much time. I started using it about 3 weeks ago and I'm hooked

I am completely lost on a computer without this app. One click emails, instant access to folders, apps, files.....priceless app!

Great piece of software. Maybe the best of its kind and I tried a few. Other users here have very well pointed out its strengths and features in any environment, corporate included. Kudos to the developer!

Just a warning, if you use the built-in updater it does not respect the fact that you're running the portable version, and installs the non-portable version. Update instead by downloading and running the installer for the new version, choosing a portable install, and installing to the same folder as the existing version you have.

@olliebean: thanks, note added to entry

The stable version (as linked here) doesn't work after the latest Windows update. The beta version (available from the website) works fine, though.

I have found mesh editor to be decent. It is still in beta though.

@CoinDoubler: MeshEditor isn't portable (saves settings to %LOCALAPPDATA%); apart from that, it's a very basic DotNET text editor, there are plenty of other choices. Great homepage, though. :)

17.0.1 Beta is now in Download section of web site.

Slimjet is not portable to any useful degree. Don't even try it. I lost all of my extensions and (all?) settings, browsing session. (Bookmarks, history remained...)

I didn't even move it I just reinstalled Windows, then started it from the same place (same path) and it erased all that stuff... (I checked in the backup that the extension files are there...)

nima_amin on 2020-05-21 22:12

The problem avada describes still persists in version 26. I used Slimjet portable on my Windows 7 PC with no problems. In February I moved to a new PC with Windows 10, copied Slimjet from the old PC on a USB stick, and from there to the new PC , started it and all extensions and settings were gone. Only the profiles and bookmarks were kept.

Flashpeak's "support forum" unfortunatel doesn't give any support but keeps claiming if you copy the user folder from one version into the other it would work. Lie! Behaviour is the same as that described by avada and me above.

To make things worse: in version 26 it is no longer possible to print content as PDF using PDF-printers such as e.g. Adobe Acrobat or PDF Creator! Flashpeak claims to have no plans to fix that bug.

It's a real pity that the newer versions (aka 1.2.0 onwards) aren't portable, because the whole interface has been wonderfully overhauled and a whole slew of new features have been implemented. According to https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues/91, the developers basically have no interest in making this portable.

shnbwmn on 2016-08-11 14:24

Update: please see the forum topic for details on getting the latest MyPaint (1.2.0) portabilised via the X-MyPaint launcher.
