EditPad Pro is the only advanced Windows text editor that you can carry with you on a USB stick, flash memory card, portable hard drive, or other removable device. This way you can use EditPad Pro on any computer into which you can insert the removable device, without leaving any traces of EditPad Pro on that computer.
No more frustration when traveling or using public computers. Carry your favorite text editor on the same USB stick, memory card or disk on which you save your files, and you’ll be able to comfortably edit those files anywhere you go.
EditPad Pro 7 and 8 run on any computer with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, or 11. EditPad Pro 6 also supports Windows 98, ME, NT4, and 2000. EditPad Pro does not require any DLLs or other stuff to be available. Your copy of EditPadPro.exe is all that’s needed.
If you have not done so already, download your licensed copy of EditPad Pro. (If you still need to buy your copy, do so now for only US$ 59.95.) The free evaluation version can’t be made portable, since it couldn’t track the 30-day evaluation period without leaving any traces on the computer it’s used on.
A single user EditPad Pro license allows you to install EditPad Pro on your PC(s) and on your USB stick(s) at the same time, as long as you are the only person using the computer(s) and USB stick(s) you have installed EditPad Pro on. You only need a multi-user license if two or more people will be using EditPad Pro.
Insert the USB stick, memory card or other removable disk or device into your computer. If you have EditPad Pro installed on your hard disk, run it and select the Create Portable Installation item in the Help menu. EditPad Pro will then copy itself along with your configuration settings to the device. Support files like spell check dictionaries, syntax coloring schemes and file navigation schemes will be copied over too.
If you do not have EditPad Pro installed on your hard disk, run the licensed installer that you downloaded and select Create Portable Installation in the installer. This creates a clean install of EditPad Pro on the device.
To run EditPad Pro from the removable device, simply point Windows Explorer to the EditPadPro folder on the device and double-click EditPadPro.exe. EditPad Pro will automatically know it’s being run from a removable device, and won’t touch anything on the host computer. Except for files you explicitly save on it, of course.
