You can download a portable version of QGis 3.32.0 from this link.

The compressed file is 1.4 GB. Once decompressed, it will occupy 2.6 GB on disk.

What is a portable application?

A portable application (or portable software) is a computer program characterized by its portability, i.e. its ability to run in different execution environments. It requires no prior installation, does not depend on external components, and does not entail any lasting modification of the system through its operation.
These applications are useful for working on a computer whose security policy does not allow installations, or for avoiding lasting modifications to a computer used temporarily. The application can then be used from a removable storage device such as a USB key.

Instructions for use

  1. Download the .zip file.
  2. Uncompress it on the desired medium: USB key, external disk, PC directory. The only condition is that you have write and read rights to the directory created: /QGIS 3.32.0
  3. To run QGis, double-click on the file \QGIS 3.32.0\bin\qgis.bat

That’s all there is to it!

Plugin installation

The downloaded version works like the installer version: plugins are installed in a directory on the PC (not on the key): C:\Users\nom_utilisateur\AppData\Roaming\QGIS\QGIS3\

If you want to take the plug-ins and all QGis customizations with you, you’ll need to copy this directory to the key. You’ll need to copy it again on any other machine where you want to use the portable version with these plugins, so you don’t have to reinstall them.

Similarly, if you don’t want to leave any modifications on the PC you’re using, you can delete this directory after your work.
