  • Provide portable OSFMount package for download

    I appreciate the OSFmount tool.

    Unfortunately it is not portable. I cannot run it from USB flash drive on other computers.

    Can a portable package be added for download too.

    A portable package should be possible since e.g. another, similar tool ImgDrive freely available, can load necessary drivers on demand:

    Thank you

    Pretty sure Windows doesn't allow device drivers to load from removable drives.
    (this would crash the Windows kernel if some portion of the kernel was running on a drive that gets removed, so it makes sense)

    So I don't think a truly portable version of any mounting software is required.
    Of course we could copy the drive to the Windows system folder first, but how is this different from doing a normal install?
