The problem with making Anytext Searcher portable is the database is based on the documents available on the local machine copying the database to a portable format doesn’t allow the indexed file to be retrieved on another machine. You can manually install anytext under the local user without admin rights or on a thumb drive you just need to set the tools index manager index storage path to a writeable location on the local machine such asĀ  C:/user/{username}/AppData/Local/Anytext/ putting the databases in AppData/Local keeps the database aligned with the data available on that device, note however based on the amount of data to be indexed these databases can become very large and take days to create. AnyText runs natively on Windows and can be run on Linux using Wine.
