PortableApps.com AppCompactor v3.4.0

billon on 7 Feb 2017
  • 787KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Checker

PortableApps.com AppCompactor allows you to compress whole directories including applications, file libraries, and zip files. The program is a powerful compression tool that unites 7-zip and UPX inside a user-friendly wizard. For applications, this saves disk space and increases performance when running from a slow media (like flash drives). For archives, this will recompress DLL, EXE, ZIP, JAR, IRC, PYD and BIN files to their maximum compression settings, as well as an option to decompress an app's binary files that were previously compressed with UPX.

All files are tested using UPX's test feature after compressing. Files smaller than 4K are automatically skipped as compressing will not save space on the drive. The standard Microsoft Visual C runtimes are skipped to prevent antivirus false-positives. Advanced configuration can be done with apps in PortableApps.com Format.

Note: As UPX will alter the EXEs and DLLs (reversible using the Decompress option in the AppCompactor) and some apps may have issues with Zip or Jar files compressed further, users should backup software and test it after processing.

tommyD: Disadvantages are that it breaks some programs, and it may be slightly more CPU-intensive to decompress libraries and executables on the fly.

I've been using Uniform Server for a few years now and I really like it. With windows 7 there does seem to be an issue with stopping and starting the services for some reason. You can get around it by uninstalling the services through the right-click option on the tray menu icon but it won't work through the apanel web interface.
Even with that problem I am still too hooked on Uniform Server to even try anything else.

It seems v8.0 is out. Due to the big version jump I did not want to update the entry without testing.

Is this project still active? There hasn`t been any updates for awhile. Nothing for the last 2 PHP7 branches. Last update was January.

HelpNDoc Personal v1.16

Andrew Lee on 5 Feb 2017

HelpNDoc is a WYSIWYG tool for creating HTML help files (CHM format) and help web sites. It comes with a built-in word processor for authoring pages within the project.

Note: Latest version is adware and is not portable. I have made an older version (V1.16) available for download in case some of you still find it useful.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: Writes dockable toolbar config to the registry, but I don't consider this to be critical to the functionality to the app, so I am accepting it as portable. But for those of you who really love to move the toolbars around in a certain way, this app is not portable for you.
Dependencies: Microsoft HTML Help Workshop
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: No
License: Free for personal use
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a temporary folder (if you have difficulty, try the Lupo version of Universal Extractor)
  2. Move the contents of {app} to a folder of your choice
  3. Launch helpndoc.exe

Latest version is 3.2.0.65. Version is outdated and the download link redirects to an uninstaller, no doubt this entry has been collection dust. A lot has changed since v1.13 for example it sports a new interface akin to Word 2010, supports CHM, HTML, PDF, and WORD output., I admit the insert-ads have become a little too obnoxious for me as it's now at the top, sometimes middle and bottom of the pages vs. V1.13 which only inserts a small text at the very bottom. But PDF export seem pretty cool. The new interface is "pretty" but daunting for those who are stuck using office 2003. I don't have enough "points" to update this entry myself nor the time fully judge if this new version is portable enough or not. But with my 5 minutes of time I ran the installer in sandboxie, copied files from a previous install of "Microsoft HTML Help Workshop" and it spit out a nice .chm and pdf file without hitch.

abc: I posted something about this in forums:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=42679#p42679 ... essentially I felt like the program had so many adware nags that it really doesn't belong in the freeware category anymore. For the time being, I've added a disclaimer about the version to the main entry.

  • Released on 4 Feb 2017

CountryTraceRoute helps to diagnose the path and delay of information across the internet. The program is similar to the command-line tracert but much faster. CountryTraceRoute also displays the country of the owner of every IP address found in the traceroute.

After the traceroute is completed, you can select all items (Ctrl+A) and then save them into csv/tab-delimited/html/xml file with 'Save Selected Items' option (Ctrl+S) or copy them to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then paste the result into Excel or other spreadsheet application.
