    Hi James,

    I'm a big fan or Portable Apps myself, being old enough to remember when all apps worked like that! It's nice to see the Portable Apps suite slowly evolving with new apps being added and the menu/backup system being updated.

    Incidentally, the first mention of Portable Apps (that I could find) on EduGeek was in 2006 here: Portable Apps

    Not entirely the same but SMART Technologies (people who make the IWB's) have released a portable version of their SmartBoard software. I have merged this into PortableApps as it seemed to make sense

    You can download an executable for UltraVNC viewer that is simple to include in Portable Apps.

    i use portable apps allot, and i found that if you stick any EXEs into the portable apps folder then they are picked up by the menu, so my menu has the admin admins bar exes in it now, aswell as some other usefull programs that all run from stand alone EXEs
