Is the Ranorex Studio have Portable version?

Post by augustyn.kozak » Thu May 30, 2019 3:22 pm

Hi All,

I would like to ask if there is a portable version of Ranorex Studio? As some of my colleagues, who are wishing to use it, from many reasons, are unable to install anything custom on their machines, we need a workaround to make them able to use Ranorex Studio. I was searching for this information on forum, but couldn't find an answer for this particular question.

Nope, there is not portable version of Ranorex Studio. It's possible to copy Ranorex runtimes to another machine, but I seriously doubt the same is possible with Studio? In my opinion, your colleagues simply needs to ask for exception to install Ranorex Studio. Also, if they want to use it at 100%, they may need admin rights, because debugging required administrator privileges. And Ranorex also requires some ports open. So all in all, portable version of Ranorex, would most probably not help your colleagues at all.
