    This Project Is Now Combined Into EverythingPortable See The Below Link For Details

    For anyone interested i made a portable steam installer and launcher no admin required. downloads all needed files. and lets you use your saves on different computers.

    https://github.com/MarioMasta64/SteamPortable/releases/latest

    all thats needed is the launcher.bat everything else will set itself up ^-^ and for parts that i couldnt do automatically i leave you a note to tell you how to do needed action in cmd (only one step isnt hard)

    feel free to leave suggestions here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/need-help-to-develop-a-better-experience.463811

    Installation worked fine, but I can't get Steam to launch. It downloaded an update and is now stuck on Extracting Package.

    my program just redirects the input and extracts steam from the packager so this is likely a steam problem. but if you provide me a look into what you did i can look into it (for now update the program and choose uninstall then relaunch the program to install again)

    btw for those who updated a few seconds ago i made a quick change so latest version now is 5 make sure to update again if you updated with the ping changes are: changed how uninstall works in case SteamSetup.exe is corrupt (extracting a corrupt program is bad)

    pm me and i can talk to you and decide

    Nice work, but you should consider placing the release in a Zip file. Anti-Virus software seems to delete them every time, but not when they're zipped. But, that's just what I do.

    (and also put a password on the zip as it will check inside) and understood. i will work on this later.

    future releases of all programs will automatically fill in the directory to install to but will still make you go through setup (no more typing long paths yay :D ) expect these changes in SteamPortable v7 and MinecraftPortable v22

    new update: no more need to type long paths in manually it automatically does it for you. if you already have the program just choose update. also downloads are in .zip form as an alternative on request of @Dr.Hacknik

    i would like as much feedback as possible (i use this program for myself all the time and same with my other projects) the key is convenience. feel free to leave suggestions and such as this program is made for everyone.
