If I remember it well then the web page

https://www.fosshub.com/Avidemux.html/

contained in the past a portable zip package version as well for download.

- latest nightlies: http://www.avidemux.org/nightly/
- latest stable: Couldn't find a non-install version either, but you can download the installer & open it with 7zip (and most likely more packagers - just skip the folders starting with \$)

Btw, has there ever been a real portable version? One that doesnt use Windows' AppData folder for storing everything but its own subdirectory?
Insofar, there's no real need/ advantage of not using the installer - except for you don't have installation rights.

ADM can be used as a "real portable" where it doesn't use the windows data folder but stays in the local installed folder.
Just rename avidemux.exe to avidemux_portable.exe and see for yourself.

This is really interesting.
As I found out I have to delete (or at least) the "include" folder and the *.dll.a files as well.
Furthermore there are some additional avsproxy.exe too

@AQUAR:

Your renaming hint is interesting as well.
As you suggested I renamed avidemux.exe in to avidemux_portable.exe, then deleted
C:\Users\Peter\AppData\Roaming\avidemux\
and tried it out.

I expected that all the stuff which was previously in the deleted Roaming folder will now automatically re-created as a subdirectory
of Avidemux installation folder D.\tools\avidemux\.

But there is no "custom" and no "pluginSettings" sub folder.
The old files "config" "config2", "config3" and "jobs.sql" are missing.

Where are these files stored in the "portable" version?

BTW: Where is this trick mentioned in the official Avidemux docs?

Thank you
Peter
