Free portable programs executable from PE
The pourpose of this post is share our good FREE tools for repairing and servicing our PC when need arrise, in acordance with Reboot forum rules only FREE programs are allowed to be shared in the forum, so please DO NOT post Warez
I invite all members to share here, in the end this is going to be good for all of us.
The idea is put all Portables we use in a directory on the root of our USB/CD/DVD (or another one), keeping the PE as smaller as possible in order to boot faster even from USB 2.0 or CD/DVD and once we boot the PE, run the tools we need, as an example of use this way it's very easy to keep our antivirus updated without the need of building a new PE.
It is necesary to remember a PE is not a Miny OS for chat on Facebook or watch TV on line, it's pourpose is very clear: A tool for installing OS and repair failures on PC's.
This is also going to be useful for developers in this forum reducing their hard work required to make scripts for
programs if there is an alternative already executable from PE that perhaps they are not aware of, then allowing them to concentrate in other tasks.
Just to keep some order I strongly suggest to include the following info:
Runs from non writable media:
Tested from WinPE/source version (s):
Tested on Project(s):
This post is getting long, I'll start listing my favorite tools in next Post (in no particular order just as they come to my mind, latter I'll fix it).
EDIT: Added misty suggestions.
EDIT 2: For some SFX Compressed Portables I made, see: http://reboot.pro/to...e-2#entry211240
It is preferable to run portables from a writable media as some of them require write access to store settings.
WinPE version(s): As it is not very intuitive you can put Source OS used for building the PE (including SP please).
