How to install and run software on a USB stick with portableapps - video tutorial

In this tutorial we will learn to use the USB stick to store programs pre-installed and you can launch them anytime and on any computer.

Many of you have at home usb sticks that you no longer use, so I thought that was out of the bottom of the tray usb dusty and give him a new life.

With the application, or rather a suite of the company PortableApps, we could take with us everywhere favorite software.

When you go to an internet cafe or a friend in the computer, we can not use software for people watching favorite chioris when you want to install and you something, but from now on it is no longer a problem PortableApps there to help us launch programs on a USB stick without the need to install.

Just tuck the stick into the USB port and launch one of the many programs available from the beginning.

In this issue we will come back with other video tutorials that will refine this method and we will adjust so as to put the stick almost any software.

  3. esty very smart… .lucky still…. !!!!

    I also have a request… a mysql database .. on a purchased host is it possible?

    Thank you !

  6. psychologist… please in the future try to post comments in the section and in the tutorial to which your question belongs!

  7. Yeah [email protected]psihologu:
    Sure, we'll do on this, we present how to manage a hosting account on a shared server from a hosting provider in Romania

  8. I have a question myself. What movie as clearly seen?

  9. Marius did not film with a camera the monitor as many would think… it is a software / program with which you take a screenshot, as if you were making a screen, only this is a print screen but in video mode so to speak. many programs with which you can do this screenshot… search on google and you will find! Just as there are software with which to record the sounds captured by a microphone, this software records both the sounds if you want and what happens on the desktop of your PC! You can only capture on your desktop, it is not a camera you keep. in your hand and film what you want…

  10. I also have a monitor filming software, one from 2008, but I don't know why it's not clear, I put a video on youtube created with this software and I can barely see what I wrote there. Does it matter how good my computer is or is the program to blame? I am allowed to put the name of this program here, just the name… maybe someday make a tutorial about this program that can be found on the net free trial.

  11. Marius the quality I do not think you necessarily care about the software but rather its settings! If you want a bigger and clearer image, set the capture to a small portion, not to full screen! So does Cristi, set the capture to a smaller portion and shrink the edge of the windows to fit that square set for capture. If you set it to capture on full screen, automatically when you upload it the zoom is smaller and the image is blurry. , try setting the capture to a smaller portion of the monitor! I don't think it would be a problem if you put the name of this program, you probably aren't allowed to give the link where it can be downloaded but if you only give the name of the software I don't think it would be a problem.

  12. Thanks a lot !! Im your hottest

  13. yes I was sure you use this… there are more… and a bit of a studio… please, I think the shirt also uses Cristi… if I'm not mistaken… :)

    Thank you very much Cristi! I posted here the idea that it is the last tutorial uploaded and I bet on the fact that it will be read in due time ... and it was a subjective suggestion in the sense that I have a Romanian housting, more precisely from romtelecom and the menu is not similar to the one presented by you in the tutorials related to database administration in mysql, not having any database added..and when adding it is required to complete the tables… also there are no privilege options..fact that confused me.Obviously someone like Adrian would say .. "ask the provider for support, because only you pay him" .. the idea is that the provider has people who have no idea what databases mean. Therefore I made a suggestion, if possible I would be happy to do a tutorial… if's ok after all and after all I'm convinced that you do what you do out of passion and desire to share your knowledge and novices sign that without flattering you with the intention of publishing a related tutorial by housting, you are an altruistic and quality person .

    Thanks for your attention and my apologies if I have broken any rules!

    PS I am not a computer novice and I have the technique… if I can be of any use in developing this brilliant idea… with the greatest pleasure!

  15. the psychologist misunderstood me and I'm sorry! you did not break any rules but it would be good and nice to post the question in the tutorial that represents the topic, so we will keep "clean" and everything will make more sense, the comments are to complete the tutorial, not to we are talking about sports, or who else has undressed through cancan magazine… As for the fact that you thought this tutorial is more recent and we could have found your problem, you are wrong! We keep an eye on absolutely all the comments no matter where you post, I myself take care of this, both me and the administrators of this site, wherever you are posted, this site is well enough monitored for anyone to see your post! It's a shame you did that, but we also keep order, cleanliness and a little discipline! Great successes and don't be mad at me! You saw that I said in the future, and I even asked you to be careful, if it was to be a damage, other measures would be taken!

  16. how to make nero portable??
    suntety super strong

  17. It's really cool what you presented filmuletz a suggestion how about installing other software on the stick, not necessarily on Portable.Merci advance!

  18. I installed virtually on the stick a program called (Snagit 7) for video capture desktop, super program I installed normally only I gave way on the stick, when I used it on real windows it went great but left a lot of registers in HKEY_USER S -1-5-21-1644 …… it leaves something to use in another PC.

  19. @Corleone: It's normal to be like that ... it needs a system to run on a man platform! Just as you can't walk on or through the air, and you need earth to step on and sometimes you actually always leave footprints where you step, so this program needs a supporter! Cristi referred that he doesn't leave dirt, folders… or passwords you have in tunderbird or pidgin… or what other programs you have there acolo

  20. Fffff good tutorialul.Felicitari I am very interesting to know how they can put other software on the stick.
    Thank you!

  21. Help to create portable applications is Universal Extractor which makes this program… well extract the contents of a kit, for example take the kit of a program and with the help of Universal Extractor extract the contents of the kit and put the resulting folder nicely in portable apps… This Universal Extractor is a kit unloader, basically these are the kits another type of archive, which keeps the contents of the program beautifully packaged, the commands are like Winrar in the context menu, also this Universal Extractor knows how to repack an archive, or make a kit from a zip folder of a program. You have to say in C program files mozilla firefox and you want to pack it nicely because you want to do a reinstall of windows but you don't want to lose your current firefox settings or plugins or bookmarks , nothing easier, right click on the mozilla firefox folder in the cprogram files and make your kit only good to put on the new windows! I hope you find it useful and successful! Maybe Cristi will do a tutorial about him in the future, anyway he was left to show us how to add other programs in portable apps !!

  22. Hi I have a request, namely how can I install utorrent in stick? thanks a lot

  23. @Ewald: Go to this site and download the portable application… see k for each software write how to install… write to search on this page uTorrent and I find it as the portal!

  24. @Ewald: Download the executable to uTorrent and put it in a folder then in that folder you create another text file that you call settings.dat so I gave it the given extension, then run the utorrent… double click on the executable in the folder

    This app is super!
    Thanks Adrian for site! I have learned something
    I found at "pretend" even portable office2007!
    Save / install programs on the stick and you've got the job after all!

  26. Hello,
    First I want to thank you for all the work you do! is awesome!
    Now I come with a question (requests)… .When do you think you will make time to put a tutorial on how we can make our favorite programs, portable?
    In Sperantza a desire to listen to it (I guess not only) Thank you!

  27. @alex: It's not great engineering to put other software on the stick !! If you read above I gave a link to a site that has a lot of applications ready to be portable, just download them and run them either from the hard drive or from the stick, to run them from the stick, make a folder stick in the folder where the other applications are and paste what you downloaded in that folder and voila, you have portable software! READ MY COMMENTS ABOVE, If you write in google portable apps or portable applications you will find many sites that offer for free download applications ready to be portable… just download and run them!

  28. We follow with great interest and much esteem for what you do.
    I have the same curiosity and I: while the tutorial promised on putting other software on the stick?
    I am interested in AutoCAD.
    Thank you!

  29. Cristi is very interesting and useful this software. I also managed to put messenger and nero and office 2007 on the stick… so it's a great way to stop charging your computer.


    Hey do not know if you can but I can manage to say to ask your help.

    I have in my house a "Watson 4Gb MP2 player" format FAT or FAT32 and I use it more as a stick and to transfer data.
    I came up with an idea that I don't know if it's possible but why not ask ?? I want to install a Windows whatever it is that "95 98 2000 xp ……" to connect Mp4 to the computer without any HDD and have windows to run.

    Tell me if I could with details …… .. and what programs exactly and described step by step IF POSSIBLE

  31. @DJ_ZEUS_RADIOXXL: This is not possible, your mp4 player does not have the behavior of a hard drive that needs an operating system! The reading time differs a lot from a normal hard drive, as well as the access time and the response time…

  32. @AdrianAdrian did not say how to do it in a folder (C / Program files) kit. You said just right click and ready. How adik just press right click ready?

  36. Portable programs can be run from the stick without the "PortableApps" application
    My question is: Why do we need this app?

    • nykos: Portable programs can be run from the stick and without application "PortableApps"
      My question is: Why do we need this app?  

      To manage them better, you noticed that with portable apps when you insert the stick it has an autorun and appears in your tray, next to the clock a menu where you can quickly launch applications, you also have a mini menu where you have a back function up, you can launch them all from one place, without browsing through my computer, double click on the stick then double click to enter the folder where the software is then double click on the executable of that software to launch it… And logically if you took it and still saw the benefits of this software! Be open minded

  37. Very hard .. I also had this problem !!! Thanks… I would still have a problem yo… I have an 8 GB stick I shot some games on it I deleted them then I gave and formed the stick !!! and now it shows me k the bottle doesn't have 8 GB it has 94 Mb… Can you help me ??? contact me at [email protected] for more details… Thank you

What would I like to ask you… are you aware of the Lupo_Pensuite v.2010 program? from what I saw in the tutorial they have about the same purpose and were created for the same purpose… try to make a tutorial about it too, they tried it and I thought it was excellent, it has many advanced programs, known and free for some you did and tutorials. Good luck!
