64-bit Portable Calibre

Would it be possible to make a 64-bit portable version of Calibre 5.x? Thanks.

If you were running Linux yes very easy.



Yes but you have to bulid your own. Look in the calibre2 folder -- resources folder for the calibre-portable.bat file.

Quote:
To avoid needing Calibre to be set in the search path, ensure that Calibre Program Files is current directory when starting.
The following test falls back to using search path . This folder can be populated by copying the Calibre2 folder from an existing installation or by installing direct to here.
Good luck

P.S.

Just tested this on my Windows VM it works.


Code:
CONFIG FILES:       E:\Calibre Portable\CalibreConfig
LIBRARY FILES:      E:\Calibre Portable\CalibreLibrary
DATABASE:           E:\Calibre Portable\CalibreMetadata\metadata.db
'
***CAUTION*** Library Switching will be disabled
'
SOURCE FILES:       *** Not being Used ***
PROGRAM FILES:      E:\Calibre Portable\Calibre2
PROGRAM FILES:      *** Use System search PATH ***
TEMPORARY FILES:    C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Temp\CALIBRE_TEMP
INTERFACE LANGUAGE: EN
'
Press CTRL-C if you do not want to continue
Press any key to continue . . .

Just replace the Calibre folder in a calibre portable installations with the Calibre folder from a normal calibre 64 bit installation and it will work.

The problem is that I would have install 5.x and then uninstall it and reinstall 4.23 for every 5.x update.Can't a portable 64-bit version be made to download like the 32-bit version?

It works very badly because it means having to install 5.x, uninstall 5.x, and reinstalling 4.23. I do not want to overwrite 4.23.

So come up with a solution that means NO INSTALLING OF THE FULL 5.X.

I use lessmsi to extract files from MSIs when 7-Zip doesn't work.

Code:
msiexec /a D:\Temporary\calibre-64bit-5.3.0.msi /qn TARGETDIR=D:\Temporary\Calibre
at the command prompt should also extract the files but that requires using command prompt.

Thanks I will try this on my VM because the windows msi installer is a cluster....

Thanks. The misexec command worked well. I was able to change the 32-bit portable to a 64-bit portable and keep 4.23 as is.
