To create a vanilla portable version, you first install any version of
gpg4win with all options and then

  mkportable --vanilla TARGETDRIVEANDDIR

That's all.  If you want a zip file, you need to zip it yourself.  There
a three reasons why we don't provide a portable version directly:

 - We need to maintain it.

 - We don't know which software shall be bundled with it.

 - A portable version at the gpg4win website would convey the message
   that we consider the use of a portable version secure or even suggest
   its use.  We don't think so and thus leave the decision to the user.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
