The use of portable software is becoming more and more widespread today due to the arrival of USB flash drives and external hard drives on the market. They are very convenient because they allow the use of software without having to install them. Indeed, with a removable storage device, we can take all our favorite software if, for example, we have to use the someone else’s computer.

But they also have their disadvantages as the fact that it do not exist portable versions of some applications or that the updates take longer to arrive. Too, most of the time, up to date these software must be done manually : it is tedious. To remedy this problems, this article will introduce Cameyo, an application virtualizer with which it becomes possible to create its own portable software.

We will see the preparations to do then the creation of the portable application and finally its final test.

Preparations

First of all, it is advisable to work on a clean machine, this is the reason why in this example I will work on a newly installed virtual machine. This way, other software installed could not be involves in potential errors during the portabilisation capture. Unfortunately, Cameyo is not compatible for IOS, so your virtual machine must run on Windows, XP and higher versions. To enable the multi-OS compatibility, it will be necessary to to use the cloud version of Cameyo even if it is not the subject here.

You can now download the installer of the application to be portabilized. For this example, I will download GanttProject.

Then you will have to download Cameyo on the web site of its editor at the following address : http://www.cameyo.com/download

You will need to execute the Cameyo.exe file you downloaded above. Cameyo is now ready to be used because it is itself portable.

We are asked here which module to choose, click on "Capture an installation". Thenceforth, a window is opening.

At this point, Cameyo will make an initial capture of your system and this can take several minutes. To not influence the capture step, it is recommended to not use your virtual machine or computer during the process.

Installation of software to be portabilized

You can, when the following window appears, begin the installation of your software with the previously downloaded installer, as you usually would.

At this moment, Cameyo can save any changes that the installation makes to the system.

Then, after installation is complete, click the "Install done" button.

A new system capture is then launched, a quicker one, and a pop-up gives you the path to the folder where the executable of your new portable application is located.

Unfortunately, sometimes before this pop-up another appears to you to continue despite a missing shortcut to the installed program, click Yes, the application will probably have chances to work.

Testing the new application

Sometimes the created applications do not work or partially, so you have to test the package newly created by launching it.

The first time, you will have a window that will ask you again to choose a launch module, choose "Run GanttProject" and, to not have to repeat this step the following times, check "Remember my choice" at the bottom left.

You can now fully test your newly created portable application. If everything went smoothly, you should not see any difference with the original application.

All you have to do is copy this executable onto the storage device of your choice. At this time, it can be used elsewhere than on your virtual machine. Finally, you will have no more excuses not to do Gantt diagrams on your projects.

Conclusion

We saw here how to create portable applications from their installers as well as the utility of creating them. But Cameyo does not stop there. Indeed, the publisher also offers a wide choice of existing portable applications and the ability to store its software online and run them from any compatible browsers. Interesting features that may be the subject of an upcoming article.
