Sure, done. I've called it services= and it can accept multiple services (as usual, use quotes for service names that have spaces).
Also followed a previous request and finally did the first migration - by renaming (automatically!) [CUSTOM CD MENU] to [CUSTOM MENU].

Can you check it in the latest beta?

It's fantastic. It gets rid of services perfectly. Thank you.

No problem, I've even found ways to do it without external commands and yet without relaunching the whole launcher as admin.

If we could also organize work with the drivers installed by some programs, it would be just wonderful.

Sure. But since I don't know how to create a dummy driver, it means I can't test it on my own, and I don't like to release like that, so here are just temporary links for you to test:
  1. Regular version that uses admin access to remove the driver (temporary link expired)
  2. Special version that doesn't use admin access to remove the driver (temporary link expired)
The difference between them is that I don't know if admin is even needed to remove drivers (probably yes, but who knows) so I'm letting you test both options.
Does any of them work?

I didn't understand anything. Add at least some instructions to the inf file.

: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 viewtopic.php?p=84241#p84241.

Sorry, I forgot to mention use drivers=... which can accept multiple driver names (as usual, use quotes if a driver name contains spaces).
The driver name should be as it appears in Device Manager.

Such utilities are for capturing network traffic. WinPcap driver itself is from 2013, it might affect my network and I rather not remove its driver externally without proper uninstallation (it's not portable). I've actually programmed my own dummy driver that does nothing (and thus presents no harm in removing it externally), but Windows refused to install it due to not having a digital signature. I guess gone are the days of at least asking "are you sure you like to install despite not having a digital signature?".

Try to make a portable version of https://github.com/sandboxie-plus/Sandboxie/releases (Classic). There is both the installation of the driver and the service. I can't do that.

I assumed you asked to remove drivers because you have drivers you don't mind removing portably.
I suggest choose any driver you already have and don't mind to remove portably, use drivers= to remove it, and let us know the results (with both versions).
At worst, reinstall the program that added those drivers, then uninstall it to remove the drivers properly.

It was about importing and exporting drivers.

If there's a driver you're willing to test removing, please do, just like Services. You can always re-add the driver later.
Importing/Exporting drivers seems far fetched.

Hi. Maybe I'm wrong with importing and exporting drivers. Nevertheless, I couldn't remove the drivers. I would like you to add the "installservice=" command if possible. I have built a program that has a service file in its folder. And in order for the program to work, you first have to run it through the bat file. Then the program itself is launched via "buttonafter=". I would like to make the service run by file name. There are no problems with deleting services.

Did it pop an error when it tried to remove the driver (in both versions)?

As for services, I guess I will add a + like services="+cmd|cmd.exe" with | because it needs both a name and a command.

If I understood correctly and the name of the driver should be taken from here,

then nothing happens, there are no errors.
