I have my doubts regarding how "portable" this program is. I know it's popular...but portable...not so sure. I decided to try running it in a sandbox (Sandboxie). It wouldn't even install in the sandbox. Makes me think this program is trying to install a driver and sandboxie is stopping it. If so, then it's not portable in my sense of the word.

webfork on 2011-01-23 18:21

Dave: Many programs that have access to system areas and require admin rights are difficult to effectively virtualize by Sandboxie or other programs.

LibreOffice Portable v5.2.4 Updated

billon on 20 Jan 2017
  • 493MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Jan 2017
  • Suggested by JohnTHaller

LibreOffice is a complete productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, database, drawing tool, and more. Includes strong compatibility for 100s of file formats including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, etc). The program is similar to OpenOffice, a program that it was derived from, but has added many new features and improvements.

LibreOffice Portable is a special build developed in conjunction with the publisher. A "Still" version that's more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities is available via the website link. On systems without Java installed, some functions such as document creation wizards and the Base database application, etc. can be enabled by adding jPortable, though this is optional and can be skipped if those functions are not needed. Alternatively, X-LibreOffice is also available.

Cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros), and supports a variety of extensions. A more stable "Still" version is available from the website link.

As many knows, LibreOffice Portable from PortableApps.com takes a long time to startup. On my system it takes 13 seconds from a fresh boot.
X-LibreOffice takes 4 seconds, from a fresh boot, so to all of You who
wants the portable version to start faster, use X-LibreOffice from WinPenPack.com.
Calc, Writer and the other stuff also loads faster with X-LibreOffice.

JohnTHaller on 2015-06-20 23:36

LibreOffice Portable is compressed using UPX to make it a lot smaller (268MB vs X-LO's 523MB for an English install) which also speeds up startup times from the vast majority of external drives. The tradeoff is that it will take a few extra seconds to start off an internal drive vs an uncompressed copy... 3 vs 5 seconds for a cold start on my machine.

Although there are a variety of other ways to add a password to Office and ZIP files, there is no PDF encryption component (either read or write) in the free versions of PDF-XChange, Foxit, and Adobe Acrobat. As a result, this is a very nice addition for PDF users.

This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

masterjedi on 2014-02-25 04:04

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

After having tried out several of those simple reminders, I believe I'm going to stick with this one. It's not as pretty as a few other ones, but it has some nice additional options (like launching of files, programs, links, etc.) and, above all, it's the only one that I know of that reminds me not only after the computer has started, but also after the computer gets out of STANDBY mode. And I use standby quite often. If someone knows of another reminder that also reminds after the computer gets out of standby, please let me know.

Cornflower on 2017-01-20 14:36

I agree with dot that there are some nice options, and in addition, the list is in text format, and I have it set to autocreate CSV format so I can look at all, say, upcoming Canadian elections (I have all kinds of things in mine) and import into other programs. The author revisits most of his tools about once a year, and for utilities that is pretty good. After over a decade, I am still using Reminder.

I agree,minimizing to tray and hotkey would make this perfect.
It works great from my mp3 player.It can use the random playlist the mp3 player generated so I dont miss the random button so much.

lautrepay on 2012-02-05 23:16

I'm afraid that hotkey support is not in the immediate plans of Mr. Pawlowski for Boom: "Noteworthy features currently missing:
Internet radio playback is not supported.
No easy way to integrate with Windows Explorer other than manually going through "open with" / "choose default program" for every relevant file type.
No audio CD playback."
Just a guess, but with this GUI I think the target is touchscreens...

User2100 on 2014-11-29 19:45

There are lighter lightweight players with more features, but this is a single executable player that doesn't seem to "cheat" by using OS decoders. It starts instantly and the interface looks very nice (truly minimalistic and not just tiny and clumped up). I'm very much missing a time slider though. That's not a small feature to leave out of a media player. It only has fast forward and reverse, which is not very useful for things like skimming trough mixes.

Not true, Kitty (0.65.0.0 plain vanilla, md5: 4cce0b4f7670492fe06fcb9b673de8d7) + kitty.ini (with savemode=dir) It's not portable, It writes this:

c:\Users\Application Data\KiTTY\

Midas on 2015-11-15 20:39

@siegfried: I confirm your findings, even after adding a "configdir=" key with a relative path.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=forum&id=0653 ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

  • Try reconnect if network error
  • Unused (off) plugins are now unloaded from memory (plghost processes are terminated)
  • Now contacts are fully handled by Isotoxin itself (not by plugins, as it was in previous version). This led to a change in the profile format and (I hope) to fix a contact corrupt problem.

Important! New profile no longer compatible with old versions of Isotoxin's (profile will be automatically upgraded). If you want to use old version of Isotoxin, please, backup profile (btw, Isotoxin backups your profile every start, see backup path in system settings)

Fixitman on 2016-10-17 14:07

I use the following version (on XP) and see no need to update it.
If you're having problems try the old version (your problems might then be attributed to an updated OS such as Windows 7 or later, which I refuse to use, especially the buggiest of them all, Windows 10)
I see comments above about file extensions, but I've NEVER had that problem, don't those people do the "save as" button? This version has that.
When on Linux I don't need this, as it has its own text editors that are better than anything Microsoft ever issued, to start with!

"December 19 2010-- Notepad++ v5.8.6
In this new release, a minimalist package is added.
It contains only the files needed to run Notepad++ with no plugins, no themes, no autocompletion API files, no auto-updater and no localization files.
The package is much smaller and Notepad++ will run faster."

Craunch on 2012-07-03 13:45

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)

Both Nirsoft's TCPLogView and Sysinternals' TCPview offer about the same set of functionalities.

However, the alternative Sysinternals' TCPview might have a slight edge in its skilled use of color background for highlighting DYNAMIC TCP connections activities:

It feels nimbler at popping up a log line (on a green background) for each transient new active connections and at briefly flashing an existing log line (on red background) before its connection is torn down.

@apometron
What you state is not true, both Pidgin and Miranda NG can connect to Facebook via plug-ins. It is not Miranda IM and Pidgin fault that evil Facebook dumped open-source XMPP (Jabber) protocol in favour of a proprietary, closed-source one. Anyway, using Facebook for communication is the worst choice possible.

Specular on 2016-03-11 09:03

I think if Miranda IM doesn't support Facebook it could simply be removed from the description. If Miranda NG works with it it might be worth adding to its entry for users who are looking for the support.

I'm really open to finding and using a new or different screen capture pgm. I just haven't found it yet. Not to take anything away from Snipaste cuz in fact it is a good app and easy to use.

lautrepay: I am very familiar with INI files. What I am saying is that this app does not store the window position you set in the INI file. No matter what you change the windows size to, it will always open in a preset size next time.

Above stubborn "preset window size" bug (feature?) still crawling as of v3.75

@Tom - well its FREEEEEEEE so you got more than you paid the evil author of the program. also will be nice if you spend thousands of hours developing a free program and then let others criticize you with BIG BOLD ANGRY CAPITALS!!!!

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)
