To make your own applications portable follow the steps below


Step 1:

Go to C:\ProgramFiles

This is the directory which mainly contains your installed files. In that directory
select the application you want to make it portable.


For ex : I want to make the application Winrar portable.
Go to the location ( C:\Program Files\Winrar )


Step 2 :

Now copy the source directory to another location

For ex : I have copied my C:\ProgramFiles\Winrar directory to D:\Portable
(You can copy it in any directory you want ) .


Step 3 :

Now download the software

Click here to download



This contains two files compress.bat and upx.exe


Step 4 :

Extract the two files to the folder where you have copied your source directory
i.e D:\Portable\Winrar.

The extracted files should be placed in a directory which has the .exe file.

For ex: I have extracted the files in the directory which has winrar.exe

Step 5:

Double click on compress.bat file. After it finishes execution now your Portable application
is ready.You can now carry your application wherever you want through USB or CD. It works
