ONLYOFFICE Workspace 12.5: enhanced security, optimized document management, Dark theme, and more
ONLYOFFICE Workspace 12.5 released

Is there a way to run ONLYOFFICE as a portable application for Windows?

Good Afternoon,

I utilize a portable application platform from to take my workspace along with me so I have a stable work environment whether I am using a computer I can install software on or not. While ONLYOFFICE would be my first choice for a Microsoft Office alternative, ONLYOFFICE is the only alternative that doesn’t have a portable option for Windows. I have tried the portable versions of FreeOffice, LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and WPS Office and all of them fall short when it comes to UI design, functionality, and/or compatibility. Is there any way to utilize OPENOFFICE as a portable application on Windows or is there any plan to release a portable version of ONLYOFFICE in the future?

Hello @CoffeeFan
We need some time to discuss the request. I will update this post when we have something to share.

The portable version may have issues due to the lack of the necessary dependencies on the user’s PC. That is why the release of portable version is not planned.
Sorry for inconvenience.

Hello Alexandre,

Thank you for the reply. Do you happen to know which particular dependencies are necessary? I only ask because, if it was the JRE for example, the platform provides jPortable, a portable Java runtime environment. I’m no developer by any stretch of the imagination but really love your software and would love to include it in my portable application suite :slight_smile:

We don’t have any plans on it at the moment. There’re a lot of different dependencies which belong to specific OSs.
Sorry for inconvenience.
