    MoleBox alternative


    Hi, I'm looking for an alternative for outdated Molebox. I need a program with supporting Windows 10.
    I prefer the open source but paid also acceptable.
    Thanks

    There's this thread which seems somewhat relevant:
    QUESTION: How to make any app PORTABLE? - Windows 10 Forums

    I doubt many know of Molebox, so if you were to modify the title to indicate the purpose, more might look..

    Molebox:
    Easily create distribution packages for portable applications without worrying about OS compatibility, DLL conflicts and other issues
    LIMITATIONS IN THE UNREGISTERED VERSION

    Packed application is bound to your PC by hardware ID
    You are not allowed to distribute programs packed with unregistered version of MoleBox
    Packed application shows a reminder window on startup

    features

    Placing entire application into managed packages.
    Packaging multiple executable files together.
    Embedding components and runtimes into executable.
    Avoiding DLL hell and version conflicts.
    Using ActiveX components without registration.
    Unique executable template for every customer.
    Protecting DLLs from unauthorized use.
    Sharing data packages between different packed applications.
    Injecting data packages into selected external applications.

    There's a GPL release here:
    Releases Ā· sudachen/Molebox Ā· GitHub

    Runs out of the box, or should I say out of the zip.

    As for the Molebox alternative, I also heard about Cameyo. Also, you can pay attention to ThinApp or it cheaper analogue - BoxedApp.
    Good luck

    Hi there
    @Marek87
    without knowing what you want to do it's fairly problematical to suggest a solution.

    Depending though on the complexity of the applications I'd start by using a Linux distribution - these are free / open source. Install WINE (Free of course) where you can run a lot of windows executables without installing windows itself. I believe even some office versions run on it decently - certainly up to Office 2010.

    WineHQ - Run Windows applications on Linux, BSD, Solaris and macOS

    This is complex to get working of course but probably worth it for what I have the feeling you want to do -- don't expect complex Windows gaming applications to work under WINE though. Some do quite well -- in the link there's a list of applications that work perfectly and details of others where some parts work.

    Using WINE does avoid having to obtain Windows licenses -- even full blown Windows virtual machines require a license. You will still need serial numbers for windows products e.g Office if you run them with WINE.

    However you can go "the full hog" by installing Virtual Box or VMWare player (both free) on your Linux distro and then install windows as a Virtual machine -- then these days almost everything will work -- but remember this method requires the Windows Virtual machine to have its own License.

    Cheers
