Sales pitch from the web site to wet your appetite:
Ever wished you could pack an entire application into one single .EXE and take it with you anywhere without having to reinstall it every time?
At work, at home, on your laptop, at a friend...
Ever wanted to avoid having to reinstall all your applications every time you change, upgrade or reformat your computer?
Or, if you are an IT admin, have you ever dreamed you didn't have to test and deploy applications, and simply let your users launch them on demand whenever they needed to?
If so, application virtualization is probably what you need. Give Cameyo a try. It is (and will remain) free!
Here's the link:
Cameyo apps can be portable.
You Could use a Windows XP virtual machine in VirtualBox, with the latest Cameyo installed on it.
Boot Virtual Machine.
Install any prerequisites you DON'T want captured in your Cameyo snapshot (i.e .Net Framework)
Take initial Cameyo snapshot.
Install application you want to virtualise.
Take final Cameyo snapshot. This then builds the virtualised package.
EDIT the package - there's an option to have all modifications stored under the EXE's directory.
Save package modifications.
Move package off virtual machine.
Copy new Cameyo'd EXE to VM.
Reset VM for next time.
Maybe the Cameyo program itself could be made portable?
Well nuff said NJOY!
