Portable version of Sweet Home 3D

I created tonight a 7-zip archive of a portable version of Sweet Home 3D that includes executables and bundled jres for Windows 16 bits/32 bits, Mac OS X, Linux 16 bits/32 bits (see the README.TXT file provided with the archive). Once this 7zip archive is uncompressed in a given folder, this folder can be moved anywhere, and all the additional imported data will work from a computer to an other.
As a special bonus, I included in the archive all the furniture contributed in page 3D models page (sorry if all of them are not translated), and the 22 available translations.

Hope you'll like it. smile

Please test it, and give me your feedback. I'll transfer it to SourceForge.net files if everything works correctly as it seems from my own tests.

Developer comments:
The Portable version of Sweet Home 3D 3.6 (116 MB) was released on 09/12/2012.

Thanks for your feedback.

Please wait a few days until I add it to SourceForge.net. Then you can copy it wherever you want as the GNU General Public License gives you the freedom to do it.

Re: Portable version

Thanks for the good news !
It seems to work like a charm (for basic operations so far. (We'll see later what happens in a real work session.)
Anyway, I've already put the install version into the trash !
I always prefere portable apps because I often backup/restore ghost images of my system.
A portable version of every next update would be very welcome of course.
Thanks again.

Re: Portable version

I forgot to mention one thing :
Nothing less than 531 mo of free space is necessary to unzip the archive and be able to use SH3D portable.
But some users will be glad to know that you can reduce it to one third, that is 179 mo.
To achieve that, you must delete unused folders and files, specially folders concerning OS others than the one you use,
and a few files of exotic languages for exemple.

I really don't know if this modification is totally authorized.

An alternative would be that you upload different versions of SH3D-portable depending on the OS's user.
Thanks.

Thanks Pierre for your feedback. smile

It's not a problem to remove the sub folders of jre and lib/ext folders that don't match the operating systems you need.

An alternative would be that you upload different versions of SH3D-portable depending on the OS's user.
No, I plan to release one archive only, it's easier for me to handle and true portability (across computers and operating systems) is needed by a lot of people. 500 MB isn't that much nowadays, and the compressed file is reduced to 117 MB thanks to 7-zip. smile

Re: Portable version

Yes, total portability sounds like the best choice.

Last but not least, the absolute portability of this version comes from the fact that users don't have to install JRE package anymore.
Tat's the icing on the cake, imo.
Good job.

Re: Portable version

Hi Emmanuel,

Guess it's better / easier to use this 'Portable Version' when wanting to work on projects on different computers?
Kind of 'overlooked' this portable version....

Any portable version 3.7 ready yet? :-)
I'll be more then happy to give it a go; will keep everything on my USB stick then...

Kind regards,

Ed
