Portable SmartConsole is a version of the SmartConsole client which is deployed without the installer of SmartConsole.
This package encapsulates all content into the directory where it is deployed so that it can be carried around in a portable device.
Another advantage of this version is that it allows side by side versions of the SmartConsole of the same release on the same computer.
Portable SmartConsole is available for Windows OS starting from R80.10.
The SmartConsole installation program installs these items on your computer:
- Visual C++ (x86) 2017 Redistributable (required for R80.30 and higher)
- Visual C++ (x86) 2005 Redistributable (not required for R80.20 and higher)
- Visual C++ (x86) 2010 Redistributable
- Visual C++ (x86) 2012 Redistributable
- .NET Framework 4.5
