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.

Hello Bernat,
Lately,i cannot transfer the data file from the old version to the new one without being able to keep all my personal files.I never had this issue for many years.I always do that for all my portable softwares(ex:firefox,Chrome,vilvadi etc,,)
The new version,, instead of opening with all my informations,opens up with a new inscription..If i use the one from portableapps,i do not have this issue.
I prefer to use yours,since you are always uptodate with your softwares several days before the others,,Honestly you are hard to beat..
thank you

Bernat said...

Sorry, no time to spend.
Use what is working for you.

How do I add an addon to portable version?

Bernat said...

Same as non portable.
Add-on add from a file (downloaded xpi for instance)
xpi will be kept in ThunderbirdPortable\Data\Thunderbird\extensions\

Unless I have missed something this is NOT a true portable version of TB.
It writes both configuration data and profiles to C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\
You can move the profile but not where it writes the other data.

Bernat said...

Of course configuration data and profile is created in
ThunderbirdPortable\Data\Thunderbird
(a useless Thunderbird folder containing empty folders is now created in %appdata% and this will be fixed on update)
No reason to write "NOT": I can read "not".
Sources in Other: you are free to modify and compile.

Hello,
i have this message at startup
"Last exit of ThunderbirdPortable did'nt restore settings.
Would you try to restore local and backup portable settings
now?"
Is it possible to avoid this ?

Bernat said...

Tutorial (on top)
Securities
In abnormal use you will get some error messages:
Check good exit
"Last exit of ...Portable did'nt restore settings." appears if Windows crached or was shutting down while portable was running: launcher did not have been able to restore local and backup portable settings and will do it before a new launch (recommended acceptance).

monk said...

thanks for reply,
so is it possible to automatically and cleanly close Thunderbirdportable
perhaps with a batch or to accept by default or automaticaly when the message appears ?

Bernat said...

Just close Thunderbird by the cross in top right of its windows and the next time you will not have this message.
This is a security to restore settings and have not to be disabled or hide.
