Inkscape is a vector graphics editor and open alternative to commercial apps like Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X. Useful for branding, icons, web design, publishing and even illustrated maps, it supports features like shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, patterns and grouping. Uses the open W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format, as well as exporting to other vector-based and standard image types like PNG. Imports formats such as JPEG, PNG and TIFF.

Inkscape Portable is a portable wrapper distributed by the publisher using the format. Alternatively, X-Inkscape is another wrapper that writes settings to the application folder.

Those on Windows XP and Vista should use 0.92.3 as that is the last supported version for those operating systems.

Runs on:Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract: Download the self-extracting EXE to a folder of your choice. Launch InkScapePortable.exe.

The TOP of Portable Freeware vector (scalable) graphics.
Much like GIMP for raster images.
Nothing they can't do in their respective areas.

Now I would really recommend my own Inkscape Portable above any other form of portable Inkscape. It's supported by and as the official portable edition of Inkscape and is available from or It's also apparently smaller than the WinPenPack version (just going by figures, I haven't downloaded theirs).

I would recommend instead of X-Inkscape, my own Inkscape Portable -; due to some fiddly work, I've got around the APPDATA storage thing, and it is completely stealthy. Nothing will be left behind.

I had a problem running it... didn't want to let it change my settings. However, you can comment out the references to the registry in X-Inkscape.ini and then it boots up just fine.

@Charlotte: This is probably to be expected. A portable wrapper will help to migrate settings from/to the registry created by the application, but it does not stop the application from writing to the registry.

It writes several entries into the registry (version X-InkScape_0.45.1_rev4). If you deny it access to the registry it crashes (vista).
