Chromium is a browser similar to Google Chrome and uses the same code base. Chromium omits some components including Google's brand, auto-update mechanism, RLZ identifier, as well as the bundled Adobe Flash Player and PDF viewer.

Chromium Portable is a custom-built version of the dev channel of the Chromium web browser. It is packaged in the PortableApps.com Format and supports jPortable.

A 64-bit version is optionally available within the extract process.

Alternatively, X-Chromium is also available.

I have no problem downloading the app. Try clearing your browser's cache and cookies.

The current download link (below title) links to a patch (24.0.1284.2.7z) and not the paf.exe

The direct dl link I found is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/crportable/files/ChromiumPortable_56.0.2902.0.paf.exe/download

@joby_toss

Clearing cache / cookies makes no difference. Tried in several browsers, same result. No worries, I`m sure it will fix itself soon.

@billon
The portable x64 version (Q-Dir_Portable_x64.zip) is available for download.

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

I will attempt to post on application website but ...
"Always start minimized (To Tray)" option does not work.

I have not seen changes occur to the configuration file (AutoHideDesktopIcons.ini) for this setting.

I will also ask about command line option to start minimized.

donald on 2011-09-22 00:45

Please note the immediate response of the developer.

This is a very nice and handy piece of software from a very prolific developer.

I have only seen first rate software from this developer.

freakazoid on 2013-12-02 00:03

Neat little app. Uses around 1.0 - 1.5MB RAM. GUI is a little ugly like all SoftwareOK apps, but you'll probably want to start this in the system tray and forget it! :)

@DarkShadow: v3.4.5 build 41712 seems to be the latest stable version.

robzuc on 2016-02-21 21:26

As I wrote on 2015-09-26, the original software isn't portable. I don't know why it hasn't yet been blacklisted from this website... Anyway, I tried the PortableApps version, but initially it didn't work: I had to rename first uTorrent_Downloaded.exe to uTorrent.exe in the [\uTorrentPortable\App\uTorrent] folder.

WinToFlash Lite v1.11.0000 Updated

billon on 21 Jun 2017
  • 44MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 Jun 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

WinToFlash easily transfers your Windows XP - 10 setup CD, DVD, or ISO image to a USB device. Although possible via other means, this solves the problem of annoying command-line arguments when reinstalling Windows on a device without an optical drive.

Additionally, as some flash devices have faster read times than optical drives, this can result in a faster Windows setup.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware (Ad Supported)
How to extract:
  1. Download the "Portable edition" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Delete non-required language files (see comments for a list)
  3. Launch WinToFlash.exe
What's new?
  • Improved partitioning and formatting algorithms, error reporting.
  • Added GRUB4DOS bootloader support for fully functional copy of Windows on a USB drive aka Windows To Go.

Wintoflash has just reached v1.0 -- Pro version is payware, but Lite/Home is still free (changelog is at http://wintoflash.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=35696).
