Repetier-Host via USB with PortableApps

For reasons I don't want to go into, I had a need to run Repetier-Host on a laptop but I could not leave it installed...

So I have been using ProtableApps for some time now to launch other application like Google Chrome and Notepad++ from a USB drive and thought, "hey how hard could it be to build a PortableApp version of Repetier-Host...."

So last night I was able to hack my first PortableApp configuration and folder structure to support the latest version of Repetier-Host. Your first is always the hardest...

I have attached the folder structure and config files but I don't want to include the binaries to Repetier/Slic3r/Skienforge as you can just DL, install to your computer and then copy over the proper directory structure for PortableApps. In the Repetier-Host folder there is a "help.html" file that will tell you what to copy where in the folder structure.

I'll do my best to answer questions and help but remember this is my FIRST PortableApp configuration so use at your own risk...
