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.

Could it be that the /updater folder is missing in the portable? So just in case someone gets notified about updated plugins (like in my case), without the GUP/GPUP there is no update of them possible and you will be asked to complete operations every time you start Notepad++. I grabbed that folder manually from the installer version and pasted it into the root of the Notepad++Portable\App\Notepad++ folder and it worked then.

Bernat said...

updater folder is removed by installer because when automatically update Notepad++ restart itself and not by launcher, some settings folders (content of Data) are not moved and can be lost.

Hi Bernat,
this is off topic but I don't know where to write this. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I made portable of alligator flash designer and it uses Adobe Flash Player to preview the flash.
Can I use portable Commonfiles/Plugins to preview? If so how do I do that?

Thanks in advance as always.

Bernat said...

Better asking in flash post.

Flash plugin is dll for browsers and not player.

George said...

Thanks for your time.

Hi there Mr.Bernat

Would it be possible for you to update some link on that page?
For your convience I have listed the mediafire.com links that are expired

InstantColorPickerPortable :http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?djgoutynowj

Both of them contains the nsi script which would be rally helpful for beginners

Thanks in advance

Bernat said...

This beginning of tutorial is no more updated since 2009.
Audacity Portable is no more on this blog.
Instant Color Picker no more exist.
And I can't no more connect to proxima.web.tr to update or delete.
Sorry !

(If I found these old files on my drives, I will update this answer)

Adding a text document by dragging and dropping to the program bar does not work. The original portable version works flawlessly. Can you check it ?

Bernat said...

Just drag'n drop in window.

CMA said...

I do exactly that. I'm dragging the document into the tab bar and nothing happens. I also tested old version of Portable by Dave Green (v7.3.3) and there also everything works fine. I don't know what the problem is :(

Hi Bernat,
when I start 64-bit Notepad++ (parameter: Force32 = false) in the Plugin menu I don't see the entry for the Plugin Admin, but I see this entry with the 32-bit version.
Your version does not allow Drag and Drop and therefore I show you the link to these builds who do:
1. build of PortableApps https://portableapps.com/apps/development/notepadpp_portable
2. old build of Dave Green† https://www.upload.ee/files/7401091/NotepadPlusPlusPortable_7.5.1.paf.exe.html
See if you can do something.
Thank you.

Bernat said...

Drag and Drop tested working.
