PortableApps Suite 1.0
Short post coz I’m super damn busy*. The guys at PortableApps.com has outdone themselves with the launch of their PortableApps Suite 1.0 which has the ability to stock your USB drive or any portable media in fact, with a full complement of software that’s ready to run wherever you plug it into any windows computer. Gone now are the days where you had to customize your own autorun.inf file (and also my post on a how-to tutorial) or use pStart to launch the portable applications you’ve copied to your thumbdrive/external harddrive.
The standard edition of the suite is about 89.5Mb (extracts to 250Mb) and a 30.4Mb Lite version (extracts to 100Mb) is also available. Just download and plug-in your portable media and double-click to install to the root directory of the device.
Plugging your portable media device should now run the autorun.inf which in turn should launch StartPortableApp.exe that’ll present you with a menu-driven UI (looks like Vista’s Start Menu) in which you use to start the various portable applications that come with the suite.
