Portable Wink

Wink portable can be installed to an USB flash drive or any other portable device and then used on any computer. When Portable Wink is run from from the portable device it will temporarily create Winks settings in Windows registry and when closing Wink the used settings will be saved back to the portable device and deleted from the registry so no traces of Wink are left at the host computer unless you yourself save files to the computers hard drive.

This installer can also be used to install Wink on computers where it might not be possible to install the ordinary version of Wink because the ordinary installer requires access to other parts of Windows registry. Also note that the portable installer doesn’t create any shortcuts to starting Wink.
