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.

Are there any way to hide the icon in task bar?

Bernat said...

No, and it's a good thing otherwise you will forget to close Tor.

ElSid said...

Installed the app. Ran this version till the bootstapper said 100%. I have tried with both the MS Dos box open and slosed. I tried to launch Firefox through the icon "FirefoxTorPortable" and nothing happened. Please help.

Bernat said...

Of course you must not close DOS windows and FirefoxPortable from this blog.
Tested with Firefox 27.0

Expected paths:
:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxTorPortable.exe
:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\firefox.exe

Settings created on first run in:
:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\Data\ProfileTor\

The online installer won't let me
check the Firefox (or other browser)
option, so I am not able to install
the browser launcher.
Any suggestion?

Bernat said...

You must have a PortableApps folder at the root of your drive and extract all portable apps without changing default paths of installers.
:\PortableApps\TorPortable\
:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\

You can't check or uncheck Tor portable launchers: only extracted if portable found.

How *TorPortable works?
Is it would execute *Portable or just execute app executable (in App\*\)?

Bernat said...

*TorPortable launchers execute app executable (in App\*\) with specifics proxy settings.

Sources in \TorPortable\Other\

Azure said...

Oh thanks, I think you didn't including the source.
(because I didn't download it yet)

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong.
I run Tor Portable installer, enter version number 0.2.4.21 (it detects Firefox Portable), but install fails with error:
"Download tor-0.2.4.21-win32.exe: SendRequest Error"

Also tried this:
I downloaded "tor-0.2.4.21-win32.exe" from Tor ftp site https://www.torproject.org/dist/win32/ and place it in same location as Tor Portable Installer to see if it could pick it up from there, with no success.

Bernat said...

No problem for me downloading with installer.
Installer updated to extract from tor-0.2.4.21-win32.exe if found in its folder.

Marcelo.ar said...

Now it works fine for me installing with "offline method".
Thank you very much, Bernat.

Just one thing: locally installed Flash player and other plugins detected by Torified Firefox will break anonymity, so, plugins should all be set to "Never Activate" from about:addons (Can use decloaking tests from ip-score.com to test this)

Marcelo.ar said...

Post should be updated.
Tor 0.2.4.22 is available since 20 May 2014:

Updated.

Still have the same issue. New computer, clean install. All portableapps running off os a USB 3.0 with folder \portableapps\ as the install location. I installed the new 0.2.4.22 version on the USB. I ran this version till the bootstapper said 100% in the DOS box. I tried to launch Firefox through "E:\PORTABLEAPPS\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxTorPortable" and nothing happened. Please help.

ElSid said...

New computer, new install, same issue. Running off of my E drive (USB 3.0). Installed the app with 0.4.22 until the bootstapper said 100% (Note, no Vidalia screen). Left the MS Dos box open. I tried to launch Firefox through the "E:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable" and "E:\PortableApps\FirefoxTorPortable" and nothing happened. Please help.

ElSid said...

Update. If I run "FirefoxTorPortable" TWICE, I get an error that firefox closed unexpectantly due to an add-on or other problem. If I allow it to open in "SafeMode" correctly, it works. Are there any add-ons or other items that are not compatible with TOR. I disabled FoxyProxy (Don't know how to use it correctly) thinking that was the problem with no resolution. Thanks

Bernat said...

Tested with FirefoxPortable 30.0 from this blog.

Problem seems to be with Firefox and not TOR, so test without TOR:
FirefoxPortable.exe should launch Firefox that can connect and store settings in Data\Firefox.
FirefoxTorPortable.exe should launch Firefox but can't connect and store settings in ProfileTor.

Hi Bernat,

can't get TorPortable to run on Windows 7/64bit (i5),
but it runs without problems on my other machine with XP/32bit SP3 (P4).

Everything is installed on correct folders and paths, recommended by you:
C:\PortableApps\TorPortable

On Win7, when I run TorPortable.exe, nothing happens, no DOS Window, nothing...

I followed the execution with "Sysinternals Process Explorer"
and I see TorPortable.exe showing on PE (no window/s either),
but quits 1 or 2 seconds after...

Can you guess what's going on?

Thanks in advance.

Bernat said...

Tested working on a clean Windows 7 64 bit.
I can't do more.

Zack said...

Just so others understand because I know I was quite confused initially. Just because you already have a running Mozilla Firefox on your pc doesn't mean this will work. You need to install PortableAppz Firefox version, that way when you go to install Tor it will have the check for the Firefox version as it will be looking in the correct folder for the correct version.

Leba Ant said...

yep,
on both machines, XP & Win7,
Firefox, Opera, PaleMoon, SeaMonkey, Thunderbird & Pidgin from this site
are installed with all the correct Paths recommended by Bernat,

on XP, all those 5 programs work and run ok with Tor Portable,

the problem is, on Win7, Tor refuses completly to open and run...

Just for the info:
on the very same machine with Win7, I have the latest official Tor Bundle
and the TPB PirateBrowser, and both runs without problems.

BTW:
TPB PirateBrowser (with Vidalia included) is a much better solution
for ppl that needs to quicly change of IP and without restarting the browser (Firefox).

Anyway, besides of this fault or incomplete fully compatibility on all machines/OSes
with this version of Tor Portable, I want to express my gratitude to Bernat
for all his great and wonderful work.

THANK YOU bud.

ElSid said...

What settings are changed in Firefox? I have another program that automatically updates Firefox portable [Thank you Zack]
I am running Windows 7, so Leba Ant's comments may also come into play

Bernat said...

FirefoxTorPortable uses its own profile in Data (ProfileTor).
Read prefs.js and _FirefoxTorPortable.nsi in TorPortable\Other\Source\ to know what is done.
