PortableApps has created a portable build of WinWget+ by Sergey Goncharov https://www.astatix.com/tools/winwget.php.

WinWget+ has been mentioned in this Forum from:
• billon viewtopic.php?t=20900#p66801 and from

How wrote billon it's already Portable/Stealth, but now we have a build with Wget 1.21.2 - 32 bit version.

WinWget+ is an unofficial version of original WinWget (open source) and it has been released as freeware (no source code).
