I would rather use a standard XnView ZIP with standard Ghostscript to create something that could be plugged into a public computer and work immediately... I did look at Portable Apps but that didn't work for me even after searching the forum, but XnView remains my first choice.
What are you up to with a ... plugins\gs folder?
Have you read the earlier posts of the thread? :wink:
I do have a portable apps USB stick and it works in all public places I've tried, even with highly restricted configurations if they allow USB sticks to run in them... why not using that, which is already working well? It also has the advantage of leaving no traces.

Does it open PDF files, for instance, for which Ghostscript is normally required?
