#268 Portable Version of Texniccenter

Other (20)
Michael Haindl

I'm using TeXniccenter in addition to miktex to write my latex-documents and I'm very happy with the programm. It's the user friendliest Editor i know for that purpose. Since a portable version of miktex was released I'm wondering if a portable version of Texniccenter would be possible. A Texniccenter version which runs only on a Flash Drive without saving any settings to the win-registry would be perfect.
Thank you for the great work on Texniccenter!

    And another user writes:

    Portable software has recently become really popular as people like to take
    their applications with them wherever they go. Please, consider making
    TeXnicCenter a portable application (i.e. able to run entirely from
    USB stick without leaving anything behind on the host computer).

    This means that there should be a possibility to store user settings in a
    file rather than registry. Additionally, it would be beneficial, if the
    location of the settings could be specified via command line option in case
    the application is run from non-writeable medium like in case of a live

    I tried MiKTeX Portable but nothing is better than Texniccenter.

    Is there any way to make it portable as long as there is none available here?

    Thanks David

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I using MikTeX portable on a USB Device.
    Last I modified TeXnicCenter to a portable Version, now there are some problems.

    I can't use relative paths to templates, pdfViewer, pdf-Compiler and this stuff.
    The second problem is, that I can't save this in an ini-file and load it later again to use it.
    Is it possible to integrate this options in TeXnicCenter?
    Maybe only with a command line parameter or so, although a seperate tab or checkbox in the option dialog more comfortable way is.

    At last, I have to thank for this good software.

    It helped me on my diploma thesis some years ago, some thesis of friends and much stuff, that I composed with TeXnicCenter and MikTeX.

    Best regards
