I will be adding apps that depends only on MSVBVM60.DLL. Like LeStat mentioned, there is no difference between that and having GDIPLUS.DLL in the application folder. However, apps that depend on mscomctl.ocx, winsock.ocx etc. are not portable AFAIK. These are ActiveX controls that needs to be regist...

Booting WinXP from USB stick

Someone has managed to boot a full version of WinXP off a memory stick . Apparently, this is the full version, not BartPE . From what I understand though from reading the thread, it is not exactly portable i.e. it only works on the original machine which WinXP was configured for. If anyone has gone ...

I use an external USB HDD too, because I find USB sticks too small and slow. The $/GB is way too high compared to a USB hard drive too. With an external 80GB USB HDD, I can carry everything: apps, photos and music with me whenever I go!

I don't like the idea of putting this information in the main database. How about we create a separate forum section for this purpose? eg. "Portable apps that runs under WINE"

How's that different from running Skype using:

Code: Select all

skype.exe /datapath:"Data" /removable
where "Data" is a subfolder you create under the Skype app folder to store settings?
