The only Portable Application Maker
=============================================================================
Hi
I have searched a lot of places in web and i have found just one program that can make
portable application:That is VMware ThinApp.

Ofcours there are many tools that can be used to make portable Apps,but most of them are
just launchers not makers.I mean these programs at real world ,are just for launching the
executable file of the application,that you have made befor.They do not make files and
folders needed for you.

But "VMware ThinApp" makes all work ,When you want to have a potable version of a program,
"VMware ThinApp" captures the setup process of that,then makes an executable file,that is
portable version of your installed program.

I am sorry that "VMware ThinApp" is not free and if you use trial version to make portable
application,this applications will work just in limited trial time

By the way i am going to say how to make portable executable file by this program.

Note:
------


_ I suppose that we want to make portable version of "ArtIcons Pro 5.14"

_ I suppose you have downloaded and installed "VMware ThinApp" from link below .
note that trialversion will work only for 60 days.

http://www.vmware.com/products/thinapp/

_ I think it is better to do this tutor process inside VMware or other your favorite
virtual pc,then check the result in your system.

################################################################################
#####


1_ Run ThinApp (see Fig_1) and click NEXT .

2_ In new window (Fig_2) click NEXT.

3_ Program will check the system and will save the system settings befor installing
"ArtIcons Pro 5.14",then will show fig_3.At this time minimaize ThinApp window,begin
to install "ArtIcons Pro 5.14",and after finishing setup process, maximize ThinApp
window and click NEXT.

4_ After awhile a window like fig_4 will be seen. click NEXT

5_ In next window select "USB flash/portable media) as fig_5 then click NEXT.

6_ In next window select "Merged isolation mode" (see fig_6).

7_ In next window select "No compression" (see fig_7) and click Next.

8_ In next window click "Buid Now" button (see fig_8).

9_ After a while program will say "build complete". Now click on "Finish" button.

10_Now go to "VMware ThinApp" installed directory\Captures\ArtIcons Pro 5.14\bin\
you will see "ArtIcons Pro.exe" (see fig_9),this is your portable articon and you
can copy that in any where in any system,it will work portable.

================================================================================

Notes:
==========
By this program you can make MSI package for your program and some
other works,that i am not going to talk about them in this tutorial.

have nice times
