Cameyo - A Free Alternative To VMWare Thinapp For Creating Your Own Portable Applications

Portable Applications (requires no installation to work) are not only useful to carry around-in your removable disk drive but also have the added advantage of not cluttering-up your operating-system with their dependencies and leftovers after uninstallation, commercial application VMWare ThinApp is the most widely used technology to create portable packages of conventional applications, but if you are looking for a free alternative to ThinApp we now have Cameyo - world's first free, open-architecture application virtualization platform.

Cameyo Application virtualization solution

Similar to VMWare ThinApp, Cameyo also requires you to capture an installation by taking lengthy pre and post system snapshots for packaging entire applications into a single standalone executable, eliminating the need to install.

I often find stuff on megaleacher that I would like to use but you make it so difficult to download whatever one wants. I really wanted this Cameyo but after thirty minutes of searching, I still down see a "download" button or option.

why is this not portable..!?

on the cameyo web site there is the download section, the download start itself or if not there's the link to start it

lol, megaleecher failed to provide u all with the download link so i took the intiative to postt the link here


A link to Cameyo website is posted and latest version of the setup can be downloaded from there.


Cameyo apps can be portable.
I use a Windows XP virtual machine in VirtualBox, with the latest Cameyo installed on it.

Boot Virtual Machine.
Install any prerequisites you DON'T want captured in your Cameyo snapshot (i.e .Net Framework)
Take initial Cameyo snapshot.
Install application you want to virtualise.
Take final Cameyo snapshot. This then builds the virtualised package.
EDIT the package - there's an option to have all modifications stored under the EXE's directory.
Save package modifications.
Move package off virtual machine.
Reset VM.
Copy new Cameyo'd EXE to VM.
Test application.
Reset VM for next time.
