RosBE portable

Post by Quim »

I see that ReactOS Build Environment is in installer format only but, what about portable format to just use it without installing it?

I also see that the following post is years old: https://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14753

You don't need to install it.

- Download RosBE 2.1.6
https://reactos.org/wiki/Build_Environment

- Download 7zip
https://www.7-zip.org/
https://www.7-zip.de/
https://www.7-zip.fr/
https://7-zip.es/

- Install 7zip

- open RosBE-2.1.6.exe like an archive-file in 7zip

- extract all files and directories in it

Not sure that things are that easy as all folders need to be in the right place and a correct shortcut is useful too, but feel free to try.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

I'm gonna bump this post and say that while RosBE is portable for Windows...it's not for UNIX/Linux. My suggestion? AppImage!
