Portable Placeshifter for Windows

This is more of a workaround, because the SageTVPlaceshifter.properties will still be written into the profiles folder, but it will be deleted after Placeshifter exists. It will then be moved to the Placeshifter folder on the USB drive.

- download zip file below
- Extract SageTVPlaceshifterPortable.exe into a folder on the usb drive
- Create subfolder "App"
- In this folder "App" create two new subfolders: "JAVA" (optional) and "SageTVPlaceShifter"
- Optional: Copy the folders "bin" and "lib" from an installed JVM into folder "JAVA". If you won't do this, a JVM must be installed on each computer you run the portable PlaceShifter.
- Copy every file from an installed Placeshifter into the created "SageTVPlaceShifter" folder

That's it.

I used the Portable application template created 2007 by Karl Loncarek, please see http://portableapps.com/forums/devel...pp_development for more information.

I can't believe you've had no responses on this. Great idea. I've set it up and it seems to be working perfectly so far, great job! I'm going to try it from work tomorrow...

Thumbs up

I've been running PlaceShifter from my thumbdrive for a while. I know it's not truly a "portable app", but it was the best way I knew how to do things. It's good to know someone's working on making this setup better.

There doesn't seem to be a choice for "Yes, I use portable Placeshifter, but no, I don't need this workaround."

See here for an alternate workaround that doesn't require any additional software.

What I was looking for.

I'll be trying this out at work later this weekend. The network and machines out there are pretty well locked down, so I don't hold much hope, but I'll let you know how it works.

I've the feeling we're going to have some firewall issues.

You still need the files described at that thread. But if you put the files on a USB stick, the configuration files won't be saved on USB but on the client computer.
The above posted software moves it pack to usb.

But this is not necessary anymore, the new beta of Placeshifter can use a properties file that is in the same folder as the rest of Placeshifter.

Also note that that zip file hasn't been updated in over a year. Your best bet is to install the current version of Placeshifter to your hard drive and then copy the Placeshifter folder to your USB stick.
