Freecad

This has already been discussed (thanks to Baas) but I recently re-tested the program and got the same results.

Status: Not portable. Writes to appdata\local\freecad ... Tested version 0.16.

You can use 7zip on the installer. It was worth trying as it supports many more formats than LibreCAD (which is available from PortableApps).

Strangely Softpedia has a listing for Freecad Portable, but I can't find reference to it on the home page:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-S ... CADa.shtml Edit: found the Github download at least (scroll down to releases): https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases

EDIT2: there's also a PA thread on this: https://portableapps.com/node/57528
