FileZilla FTP Client Portable

FileZilla FTP Client Portable

It'd be nice to have. ... "Portableapps" FileZilla FTP Client Portable can't update itself. -- Portableapps-FileZilla says updates are available, updates the program files directory, instead of the portable directory, so it doesn't work. ... So I'd imagine portableapps can't get filezilla portable to work properly. ...

https://sourceforge.net/projects/portab ... 0Portable/ PortableApps.com - Browse /FileZilla Portable at SourceForge.net

See there's like over 5000 users downloading portableapps UNOFFICIAL filezilla portable WEEKLY. So there's DEFINITELY interest. Imagine how much an OFFICIAL and SUPPORTED version would. It's over 9000. So it'd be nice if there was an official version of FileZilla Portable. ... Right now we have either no choice but to use a non-portable version; with the "AppData" on 1 machine. Or a "portable" version from porableapps that can't automatically update and that we have to update manually. ... The main difference I see between filezilla and portableapps filezilla portable is the "Settings directory" on filezilla is "C:\USers\USER\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\" and on portableapps filezilla portable is "D:\FileZillaPortable\Data\settings\"; for example. ... That's not that difficult to change, is it? ... I mean portableapps did it without even making the rest of the program. ...I mean all programs were originally portable right? The idea of "AppData" and all that came later right? ... I'm sure it's not out of the question. ... Please understand.

Please help me.

Download the ZIP package, copy the fzdefaults.xml from the docs subdirectory into the main one, and modify the Config dir setting inside to point to the current directory (.). Bam, portable.
