I have been using Jitsi Portable on a 64 bit Windows Remote Desktop Server for several years. I do not have admin rights to install software on this server. Until today, I was using Jitsi 2.4.4997, which still is the most up to date version available from the SourceForge project jitsiportable.
Looking for ways to update Jitsi to a current version, I have found this issue. After reading this issue, I was able to create my own portable version of Jitsi for Windows quite easily:
- I downloaded jitsi-2.11.5588-x64.msi from https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/msi/, the latest nightly 64 bit MSI installer available this morning.
- I installed this Jitsi version in a virtual Windows 10 machine (VirtualBox in my case). As I do not need Jitsi in this virtual machine, I created a snapshot of the virtual machine before, allowing me to go back to the previous state of the virtual machine after I had finished.
- I created a zip file of the folder "C:\Program Files\Jitsi".
- I copied the zip file to my personal folder on the Windows Remote Desktop Server.
- I started Jitsi on the server using a batch file containing the following lines:
`start jitsi.exe --config=./config`
- This allowed me to start with a clean Jitsi configuration. The profile is stored in a folder called config right under the folder with the file Jitsi.exe.
- I was also able to start the new version of Jitsi with my existing profile, created by version 2.4.4997, by changing first line of the batch file to:
start jitsi.exe --config=h:/jitsi-data
- Instead of course, I could have copied my existing profile to the config folder in the jitsi directory.
I hope someone finds this helpful.
