Re: Checking portability of an already installed program

From the top of my head, you'd have to ensure that program's installation wasn't interfering in the least with your portability goals -- and the easiest and quickest way to do that would be to uninstall the suspect, ensuring no changes or traces were left behind (although not natively portable itsel...

Re: Signal - cross-platform secure messaging (64-bit only)

Nevertheless, there's always a spark behind all the smoke... As reported by BleepingComputer in 2018, when Signal Desktop for Windows or Mac is installed, it creates an encrypted SQLite database to store a user's messages. This database is encrypted using a key generated by the program and without i...

Re: PDF SAM = PDF Split And Merge

Re: Revolutionize Your Video Creation with Coolcut and Coolcam

This doesn't look portable to me (see below), but there is a free download and I didn't want to prevent the community from judging, so moving to "Discussion".

The executable free download is a web-installer -- I didn't check further... :|

Yikes! A 100MB frontend for a 2MB CLI utility... :shock:

Thanks for posting anyway, hamasaki.

Re: AutoRun LWMenu

Sure. But since I don't know how to create a dummy driver, it means I can't test it on my own... :idea: From the top of my mind, you could look at utilities that require winpcap , a number of which have been posted here at TPFC... E.g., see https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=84...
