Portability Notes

  • LINE do not have portable mode. It stores its settings in Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • We redirect Windows' data folders to LINE's Data folder, so only the registry settings are not portable.
  • You have to set your Chat download folder manually to LINE's Data\Downloads folder we've provided.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
