Winuae portable ?

@Toni:

How do I make Winuae 2.3.1 portable ?
Is it enough to create a winuae.ini text file in winuae directory ?

Well, I'm not Toni, but in general it's enough. Quite sure that Toni will tell you about the limitations it still has, but for me it works fine

Official way is to use "winuae -portable" which creates the file automatically

Is there a way to install WinUAE as portable (not just run it)?

Yeah, use the .ZIP archives and just extract.

...and then to run in Portable mode tick "Portable mode", and probably best to tick "Use relative paths" also.

Ah thanks! For some reason I thought the file inside the zip archive was an installer

Funnily enough, I use the ZIP versions of WinUAE, but I don't run it in Portable mode, so the settings are stored in the Registry.

I also keep the original WinUAE ZIP archives, but I only have the main EXEs in my Amiga folder, so I can run it without having to extract all of the ZIPs. It works well, looks like the entire application is self-contained.

The image shows my main "Amiga System" folder in its entirety, all I need to run Amiga stuff right there. WinUAE points to it in Paths.

winuae.exe can always run standalone. It can be also extracted from installer without installing by extracting it with 7-zip, probably some other archivers also support it.
