ebook viewer standalon (portable)

Hi all,
is there a possibility to use the calibre ebookviewer standalone (with the portable Calibre version)?
Background: Sometimes I want to open an epub without opening calibre before - I just want to have a short look within the book. Until Version 2 there was an .exe file (Ebook-viewer.exe) which could be used for this. But now I can't find this file in version 3.

Can anyone help me?

I was going to comment ebook viewer is there in calibre portable but I recall now that I use the normal 64bit install so can not be absolutely sure. You can use this method to get ebook viewer if it is not available in calibre portable though I think you are mistaken.

Still there for me. Any chance your antivirus program might have deleted it?

@hmreader - if you can open an epub from the library manager (portable install) then it must be there, it should be at: ...\Calibre Portable\Calibre\ebook-viewer.exe.

hmm - strange
I just updated to 3.19 and now it is back again. (but it wasn't there for sure - I think I really need vacation)

However:
Thanks to everybody who answered here :-)
