How do I get Paint.NET portable?

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity, what's the technical reason?

Is it because of the optimization step at the end of installation (At least seems like there is such).

There's not necessarily a technical reason. It just hasn't been done yet and there's lots of other stuff to do as well.

Yes, there is...

  1. Install Paint.NET on any system
  2. Copy the installation folder, which is usually C:\Program Files\paint.net, to a USB stick (or wherever)
  3. Enable “portable mode” as described above, by editing the .exe.config file
  4. Take the USB stick to any other PC that already has .NET Framework 4.6 installed, and then run PaintDotNet.exe
  5. Voilà! Now you have a portable copy of Paint.NET.
