PortableApps.com Installer
Easily package your portable apps with this effective installation tool

The PortableApps.com Installer is an easy-to-use NSIS-based tool for packaging your portable apps.

If you develop portable apps then you could of course simply make them available as raw executables, or archives. But that's not exactly the friendliest approach, as you're leaving the end user with the hassle of extracting the contents, deciding where they should go and so on. Which is why the PortableApps.com Installer may be preferable.

The program requires that you configure your application according to the PortableApps.com Format, so you'll need to do that first. It's not difficult, and essentially just provides a set of rules governing folder structures (although there's an INI file which defines your program configuration, too). Read more about this on the PortableApps.com site.

Once your applications are configured according to those rules, though, it's all very simple. Just point the Installer at your application folder and it'll package it into a straightforward executable, with a quality NSIS core, good compression rates, and multilingual interface (there's support for 71 languages).

Please note, though, the program is only licensed for use with free open source and freeware. If you intend to use the Installer for commercial tools then you'll need to contact PortableApps.com, first.

Verdict:

The PortableApps.com Installer provides a quick and easy way to package your portable applications.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
