comment Method for running a VCE Player for Windows Desktop without installing it on the computer
@fixer1234 - I am confused with the suggestion to search Google for a solution. This is a Q&A site. However, trust me, I would not post here and wait possibly several days for a solution prior to spending (only) potentially a number of hours using Google. I am aware of many Portable Apps websites (with no mention of VCE, unless I am missing them), and VCE file sources (with no mention of portable player versions, unless I am missing them). "Executables will usually look in their own directory for what they need." - Not in my experience, at least.

@fixer1234 - Portable software doesn't often eliminate dependencies, it just collates/(often) duplicates them in a single local location. At least that is what those I mention do. I will keep the idea of finding a PC to install installable versions onto, [and potentially] locating and copying all associated files (probably using an install monitor), to then find a way to fool the program into thinking it is accessing these files in their previous locations --something I don't know why I didn't consider-- as an option if no-one saves me this hassle by telling me of a existing portable version.

@fixer1234 - Not interested in debating this issue further, so instead of posting on meta, I will say in conclusion that I don't think asking whether a portable program exists is like asking for a recommendation of whether CPU A is better CPU B. I am also not sure how the answers after asking for a solution cannot be considered an opinion (or one way of doing something) and --depending on technology-- may become outdated fast.

DragonLord, DavidPostill, fixer1234, @Mokubai, I am also interested to the get further explanation about why my question was put on-hold. [While I cannot seem to find the wording used on the notification right now, nor easily find another question in the same status] It seems to me that any solution is opinion based, and can become out-dated fast. I also note there are other specifically portable software requests that seem to have stood the test of time on this site - superuser.com/questions/201879 , superuser.com/questions/242384 , superuser.com/questions/335540

"VCE Player" is not a thing, it is a description.

@fixer1234 I probably should have been more verbose in my latest edit. The computers I am using are kiosk-like, so no booting off external media. Besides, running Linux and then a emulation or virtualisation layer with Windows to get a simple program running without install seems like a bit of overkill. The same as FirefoxPortable, MirandaPortable, VLCPortable, PuTTYPortable and others have been altered to not require an install program, would seem like the ideal solution as far I am aware.

@duDE - I am sorry, I don't see a Windows (Desktop; sorry thought this would be assumed based on the "No install" criteria. Editing my question now to prevent future problems) portable VCE Player on the linked page. To whomever down voted this question - Can you please comment on what is wrong with it?
