It's not fully portable because it leaves the settings ina Appdata, common files etc., and not in an adjacent folder tat you can take with the aplication . See how the "[spamspamspam]" does it.

The House of Portable said...

That folder is just a temp folder, you could delete it after every run of program and there will be no changes to ur portable. So if you run that exe on a new computer it will be the same :)

[[FUCKOFF that blog man, that's a shit it still uses thinapp that has billions of bugs and issues, spoon is better, if you prefer that bad blog go to it and download from there your cool indesign cs6.. ah yes.. it doesn't have any cs6 program. ah, you should request it! ah yes.. it doesn't accept requests....]]

The House of Portable said...

Thanx for the reply. Maybe you're right about the thinapp and it's true that the blog i mentioned is inactive for 6 months now!

Was there smth wrong with the previous version I downloaded from here. Why a new upload?

The House of Portable said...

if the previous version workd for u it's great, but for most of users it doesn't. Here's a new version, and it works.
The previous version the exe was about 500mb, and sure there was smth wrong cuz indesign for installation needs 1.5GB, infact the new version exe is about 1.6GB. ;)

Anonymous said...

Ciao. Vorrei domandare quello previous version. It is written on my screen: "ID is missing required system fonts on CMap files. Please reinstall ID. Is in the 'new' version, the portable will be ok? It's long enough to download........ Grazie.

The House of Portable said...

infatti la versione di prima spesso dava quel problema lì, l'exe precedente di indesign pesava circa 500mb, invece quello nuovo pesa 1.6gb (indesign all'installazione richiede 1.5gb di spazio, quindi all'exe da 500mb evidentemente gli mancava qualcosa..) la nuova versione va, porta un po di pazienza a scaricarla ancora ;)

Still MSVCP100.dll missing!

The House of Portable said...

Anonymous said...

Yes, installing the MS Essential Libraries Redistributable Package (x86 version) does do the trick - now working perfectly - thank you!

Here is the official link for the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 package : http://www.microsoft.com/fr-fr/download/details.aspx?id=5555

It works very well, thank you !

MSVCP100.dll, and objectmodel.dll missing. How I could reinstall it? Or solve it?

Thanks in advance

The House of Portable said...

if it asks for msvcp100.dll u havn't the microsoft redistributable package in ur computer..!!1 install them v2010, then run indesign again.. ;) should be also the other dll in the 2010 package!!

Anonymous said...

Awesome! Another Spoon-Portable app to add to my collection. :)

Alvis Chen said...

Hi, thanks for the awesome portable!
However, after a few runs, I start getting the message "The sandbox at @APPDATALOCAL@\Spoon\Sandbox\Adobe InDesign CS6 #thop is being used by different application. Please select a different sandbox location or try again later."
I have no idea what this means, what should I do?

The House of Portable said...

that's simple: it's because indesign is already open! and if you can't see the indesign window, it's not because it's not open, it's because it's open but in freeze. Just restart the computer and all will work as it did b4, or if you can't restart, go to Task Manager and terminate all indesign and adobe processes ;)

Thanks you! great portable.

Anonymous said...

Holy crap! Why are your portable apps so gigantic!? I have another portable version of InDesign(not CS6, admittedly), that's literally 1/10th of the size yours is. Why is it so huge?

The House of Portable said...

don know how they portabilize programs but the size of ours is as big as the programs need free on the C: disk to be installed, n maybe smth less, cos a bit of compression cos of the portabilizer when includes all in the exe sometime it compress a bit, but if all is highly compressed, the program would take much more time cos before the execution it must extract all..

Ho installato indesign cs6 portable...tutto ok ma dopo due giorni di utilizzo ha smesso di funzionare ed ha iniziato a dare l'errore "ID is missing required system fonts on CMap files. Please reinstall ID".
Ho provato a reinstallarlo ma niente; a scaricare MS Essential Libraries Redistributable Package (x86 version)ma niente ...sempre lo stesso errore. Qualcuno sa come aiutarmi? Ho windows xp sp3

Hola, gracias por el portable, lo bajé pero no puedo correrlo, me dice que falta algo...

The House of Portable said...

u miss a dll? read the previous comments

心雪 said...

Thank you for your great work! It really works well just just like magic.
I find that the three parts of file is really hard to download in healthy stage, anyway it is prove that both the link and portable PS is work. (The site will cut down the download before the file is fully downloaded, so I saw many of your comments told it is a broken link. Better to use a download manager and try a few times, or backup the download link in other better hosting sites like limelinx.com)

Really great work!
I am wandering if I can put some of my old plugin into the portable PS for use too? I tried to copy the old plugin from my computer library to the portable folder, but looks like it doesn't recognize it is there.
Thanks! :D

Thanks so much! Works on win7. Just tried win8, though, and this and other don't work! :(
(So I went back to win7) Just trying to give you a heads up so you can try to figure out what needs to change in the future.

The House of Portable said...

sorry i can't control my apps for win8.. also for now most of people still has win7, so i'll done my portable on win7, don't know if i'll move to w8..
Even the w7 compatibility mode in win8 doesnt work with indesign? it's the only thing u may try

Anonymous said...

Hi,

I got the same problem when I updated my sytem to W8 I try the compatibility mode but it's not working. Thanks anyway for the great job you did on this version

The House of Portable said...

thanx we're sorry but it's w8 fault :(

Anonymous said...

Oh, so still there won't be a solution to run the portables on W8?

The Acrobat X1 runs fine.

Thanks.

Ciao,
all'avvio mi appare:
"Some files required for color management are missing. Please re-install the application to ensure proper functioning".
Poi si avvia, ma non so se potrei avere dei problemi utilizzandolo.
Grazie mille.

The House of Portable said...

buh la stragrande maggioranza dei tool dovrebbe funzionare alla grande, il fatto che ti dà quel messaggio può essere anche niente visto che non a tutti lo dà.. bo se riscontri qualche problema fammelo sapere, ma cmq quando riesco aggiorno tutti i programmi adobe cs6 ai nuovi build sperando che i vari problemi di error e dll mancanti si rosolvano ;)

bitoolean said...

Hello. I just wanted to thank you for the good you do and let you know that your work is appreciated.

I've been using more portable programs for years and now I've decided it's time to use as most portable programs as possible.

Visual Studio 2010 still needs to be installed, and so do other Microsoft and Windows system related pieces of software such as Nero and DAEMON-Tools, but that's about it.

So thank you for making this goal possible.

sven said...

Ahhhh, this looked so promising! I love the portable versions, and you're the only one i could find online that has managed to make an portable version of indesign! (lots of thanks for doing this)

Unfortunately the links aren't working any more! Such a shame! :( Could you please reupload the files? It would mean the world to me!

Anonymous said...

May I know if this can be run using Mac OS X??? Thank you!

The House of Portable said...

Are you kiddin ;) not! we make portable programs that are for windows only, because windows programs if installed make the system dirty. Mac programs instead are built in a way that the entire program is in one directory, so it's already 'portable'. So in the mac you don't need portables, just install and it will be OK.
Anyway this program can be executed in Mac under Wine, but it's not the best thing!

New alternative captcha look pretty goods (put the cissors into circle etc...) ! :)

Lol they don't know what to invent next ^^

Kaiwen said...

hello !

Thank you for this portable app :)

One question though : There're 2 different files to download : part1 and 2. I know it sounds stupid but : do I need to download both ? And then how does it work ?

Thanks a lot :)

Anonymous said...

hi, very nice program you have, it's quite annoying that I have to uninstall and reinstall my indesign (CS5, 5.5, 6) like 20 times for one project... =_=" I hope it has the same principle as my portable photoshop where you just plug it and off you go...

Anyways I tried to download it, but it needs a password...(decrypt key) to be exact...I was wondering what it is?

Thanks.

The House of Portable said...

@Kaiwen - yes you have to. See the FAQ section to see what to do!

@Anonymous - yes i kno its a pain! anyway this shouldnt ask for a passw, anyway try thop but it shouldnt. Maybe check the size and try again, maybe u downloaded it badly and it becomes mad.

Anonymous said...

Great portable!! Your're the best ^^ Could you make Indesign CC aswell??

Anonymous said...

Don´t work in Win 8 Pro 32bits. :(

The House of Portable said...

Yes I'm sorry, old Adobe cs6 programs were not compatible with windows 8. The new CC are! I'll make indesign CC soon stay tuned

JF Benedicto said...

Greetings... I Managed to download it now thanks to your password...

I find it quite amazing how this portable works...

1st is that my computer doesn't recognize the dng. so you know that symbol when you need to browse a software for it to be read...but when you chose CS6 portable, it can read it!! ~ good way to fool people haha.

2nd is... even though the color management thingy is missing... I tried exporting it as pdf and jpeg and still works... I don't know if it's going to print nicely on a printer though.

3rd... The handy thing is I can just put it on my USB and insert it on any laptop/ comp and off I go!!

I really want to thank you for solving my InDesign problems, very helpful for my Archi.Course =))

Wish to see more portables in the future!! OR MAYBE A ILLUSTRATOR CS PORTABLE? XD

Well Done Best Wishes

Bonjour et félicitation pour ces logiciel super
Mais y aura t'il une version Francaise au multi langues

The House of Portable said...

Well, what?

Hendrix Lopez said...

Hey Kudos there!
Im now running you Indesign Portable but I have some issues regarding the files,
1. Im wondering if what the part2 of this app really is for because once I open it, it says 'the sandbox at @apdatalocal@\spoon\sandbox\aidcs6#thop is being used by other app.' Wherein, the part1 is not opened, and I very sure 'bout it.

But I was able to run the application :) And I think it runs normally. Though,

2. During it's start up a messagebox appears saying, 'some files required for color management are missing. please re-install the application to ensure proper functioning.'
Do I have to worry 'bout it and what issue might it cause, or it's just normal.
Thank You :) More powers!

The House of Portable said...

The app has been divided in different parts to make it easier to download. You download all three parts in the same folder and then extract from the first one. It will automatically extract from all the parts you downloaded. That error is because you're already running the sameIprogram..

2 and yes that error appears with some users but I don't know what causes it. If you don't know what are the consequences, Then it's okay cos you may not be able to use those advanced things.. Do you? :)

:P said...

Is there a way of adding a custom dictionary (whole language) to your portable version?

I can't find the "\...\AdobeHunspellPlugin\Info.plist" anywhere, nor the .dic and .aff files... Is there another way or am I doomed to install?

:P said...

Is there any way to add a custom dictionary (whole language) to your portable InDesign?

For the install version one must make a change to the "Info.plist" file and add some stuff to "...\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Linguistics\6.0\Providers\Plugins2\AdobeHunspellPlugin\Dictionaries", and I couldn't find a way so far...

Any solutions or I have to stick to the install version?

The House of Portable said...

Here's how our portable works.
It doesn't store all the needed files in those folders. It just stores the modified files. So if you put a custom file - maybe one of the names you mentioned, I don't know what they are and how they works - it will read it and it will run as if you replaced it with the original one! :)

Hi, I need help please! When I'm clicking on icon Adobe Indesign CS6 it's no reaction. How I can start installation process? And I have Win8. Thank you and sorry for my english...

The House of Portable said...

With w8 you have to download InDesign CC, which is newer and better. Search for it

Cepiglia said...

Ciao! Innanzitutto grazie per il portable :), volevo chiederti se è possibile installare dei plugin. Devo creare una cartella o qualcosa del genere? Quando apro il programma non si crea la "classica" cartella temporanea nella stessa directory, è in qualche percorso particolare?
grazie in anticipo,
CB

The House of Portable said...

Sì sto portable è un po' vecchiotto e ancora no modificavo il posto della sandbox impostandolo affianco all'eseguibile. La cartella c'è non ricordo perfettamente dove ma in qualcosa del tipo c:/user/(tu)/appdata/local/spoon/sandbox
altrimenti puoi scaricare da noi InDesign CC che è una versione più nuova e ha la directory vicino all'eseguibile :)

varissa srisataporn said...

Thank you for your hard work,
I DL the program and try, it open and work my document fine...but when it come to export ....the program crash and shut down itself every time...(this is on new computer with no programs installed at all) but when i try it on another computer that have acrobat installed...it worked and export well....my question is...how can i make the program work on the computer that don't need acrobat installed (just use portable acrobat)

The House of Portable said...

Hmm idk this is a strange thing, you should install at least acrobat Reader on your computer, it's really light. The computer will be clean.

OR you should try downloading our InDesign CC (which is newer and better than the old cs6) I think the CC will work great without installing anything.. Just try
