TightVNC Portable Edition is a specially packaged distribution which makes TightVNC
keep its configuration and connection history in the installation directory (typically, on a USB flash drive), instead of using the registry of the host computer.
With TightVNC Portable Edition installed on a USB stick, you can plug it into different computers but always see your own list of past connections. Your settings will not depend on the computer currently used. Also, when you leave the computer, you do not leave your connection history in its system registry and do not interfere with other TightVNC copies locally installed on that computer. You always have your data on your USB flash drive.
Unlike the general-purpose TightVNC
distribution, the Portable Edition is not free, although registration is inexpensive and 30-day free evaluation is available. Features
