A portable application can be run from a removable drive (USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive, etc) on any Windows computer without installation.
You will carry the program with settings on removable drive and don't modify settings on host computer.
On Vista and above turn off User Account Control (UAC) or run launcher as admin.

If you found dead links, search on Jooseng's Mirrors.

Ahora si, muchas gracias Bernat por la solucion y por los programas portables.
Me gustaria mucho un portable del programa PhotoScape 3.6.5, que es excelente y gratis.

Hello is there a way to set only one instance for VLC?
I couldn't find any setting to disable multiple instances.

Thanks.

Bernat said...

If you have AllowMultipleInstances=false (default) in VLCPortable.ini you can launch only once VLC.

Thanks,
I re-downloaded the installer and found the option.

Another issue: I'm opening a stream url via command line and I would like to change the stream with a second command line as well. If I use the VLCPortable.exe I get the alert message. If I use the \App\VLCwin32\vlc.exe then I get a second VLC instance opened.

Is there a way to be able to pass a parameter to the first instance of VLC via the VLCPortable.exe instead of getting the "Another VLC is running" alert?

Many thanks for your wonderful work.

PS Is there any source code available to try to modify the VLCPortable.exe myself eventually?

Virginio Spicacci Minervini said...

Just saw the source code and I'm afraid it won't be easy at all :-( Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

I think you can't pass 2 command line to the same instance but you can pass several parameters (separated with space) in the same command line.
