Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Portable GUI apps from Sordum (some also have CLI

#1 Post by Cornflower » Tue Dec 01, 2020 7:16 am

Here is Sordum's list of GUI utilities, some of which also have command line (CLI) options. You will notice that many are duplicated in my post yesterday in cli submissions forums, but they also belong here if they have a GUI as well.

Sordum claims all are portable, and the few I've tried so far are portable and appear stealth.

Note: some require Administrator access to work.

tested a ton:

Notable tools:

Reg Converter << under 800kb wtf, few apps offer this ease! << dont miss this!
Qemu Simple Boot v1.3 <-- best on list, WELL MADE! 2.7mb
Find Prime Numbers <<- Super pi, but modern, stressed a R5 3600X cpu << tiny 320kb!
Reduce Memory < cmd option..well made, light, really works! under 900kb, 32bit & 64bit versions in same folder (I'd rather unicode, but better than 64bit only)

Tools are light, Clean UI, TRUSTWORTHY

Qemu Simple boot is equal to MobaLiveCD, but it has a better UI/options...2.69mb UPX repacked

Regconvert is my current pet fav, great idea, the ease!

Reduce memory < mem reduct NOW has competition,, byte4byte...finally

Find Prime Numbers < for its size, stresses the fastest cpu's.. if you know "super-pi mod" this is basically a modern improvement to it

Sordum is at a byte4byte level .... on par with Nirsoft and Software OK Tools...I'm, 100% donating to them!

I consider Nirsoft & Software OK to be "AAAA" dev's, and I'm happy to consider Sordum in the same "class", its an exclusive club mostly for api & assembly coders of outstanding skill & generosity

Small & potent, commercial grade software, for FREE

More to the point, these should 101% added to listings, consider alternatives listed as Nirsoft tools & Software OK tools (they are most similar offerings on site, and on net at large)
