Supposedly you can make winamp portable, there's plenty of guides that i've seen online. It's just a matter of tweaking a few things and editing the .ini(s)

I myself prefer to have my Winamps on the harddrives C on my PC & notebook, because my Winamp folders will reach the 2 GB soon. I have customized them perfectly with so many skins, presets, textures and wallpapers. But of course maybe some other Winamp users want to know, if such a big Winamp folder can be used also as portable version.

Winamp 5.666 portable steps

I have followed following steps to make Winamp portable. Hope this will help others who still use Winamp. I required portable version to manage my huge collection of musical files. I am using Winamp since version 1 and I like to organize and rate my music in Media Library.


1. To make Winamp 5.666 portable always change your portable disk (either pen drive or HDD) drive letter to 'Z:' (We always need to change the assigned drive letter to Z: on other computers). We need fix drive letter to maintain Media Library in Winamp.

2. Download Winamp 5.666 Setup file

3. Install winamp and copy all files from the installation directory to portable directory z:\Winamp566

4. create batch file Install.cmd and write this line inside Install.cmd "start winamp.exe /inidir=ini". This will install winamp in portable directory.

5. Create a folder and rename this folder "Settings" and copy all files from "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Winamp" to Settings

6. Open paths.ini file in Notepad and change "inidir={26}\Winamp" value with "inidir=z:\winamp566\Settings"

7. add this line "cwd=Z:\music\collection" (your music directory) in \Settings\Winamp.ini

If you want to make a shortcut use {%windir%\explorer.exe "\winamp566\winamp.exe"} this line to create shortcut

This worked for me, hope it will work for you!

I think the Wacup project is excellent. However when I tested it a log of plugins I tried to use weren't working despite my efforts to enable them they were being disabled. :/

Some plug-ins are disabled in WACUP's portable mode by default. There is an option in the Preferences-Advanced-Portable Mode section that lets them be installed and enabled. There is still no guarantee that all of them will work after being enabled.
