Portable software

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

To be considered truly portable, a software program must:

  • Not require any form of formal installation to be carried out on any computer before it can be used, with the release package only needing to be decompressed directly to removable media before use (if it has to be installed first, and requires it's files to be manually copied to removable media, it's clearly not designed to be portable!).
    For example, software which is supplied as an InstallShield package could not be considered portable, though a ZIP archives containing an executable would be.
  • Settings are stored with, and can be carried around with, the software (i.e. they are written to the USB drive).
    If the registry is used to store settings; the application's configuration isn't portable, and must be set up on every PC it is used on
  • Leaves a zero (or near-zero) "footprint" on any PC it's run on after being used.
    i.e. All temporary files/registry settings should be removed once the program has exited, and files created by the user can be saved directly to the same removable media as the application is stored on.

Generally, smaller utility/toolkit software is inherently fairly portable; though larger applications are sometimes changed in order to allow a portable versions to be released (e.g. FirefoxPortable)
