Portable Application

Bersoft Sampling Analyzer (BSA) can run as a Portable Application, from USB (Flash or HDD) Drives.

A portable application is a computer software program that is able to run independently without the need to install files on each system it is run upon.

When BSA is installed on a removable storage device, which should be a USB flash drive or any removable USB drive (like a removable hard disk, but not a floppy drive).

After BSA is installed on a USB Drive, it will be able to run on any system with Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / 7 or 8 without installing anything on the system. All BSA settings will be kept on the USB Drive.

Also the USB Drive should have a unique number embedded in it. Most USB Drives have a unique embedded number, but if they don't, such drives cannot be used for installing Bersoft Image Measurement.


When BSA installer runs you will be able to select where it will be installed, by selecting either a Destination Directory on your Hard Disk (the default choice) or a USB Drive letter.

To install BSA on a USB Drive, select the USB Drive letter by clicking on the Browse button near the Destination USB Drive textbox.

When installing BSA on a USB Drive, you will not be able to select the program Directory, but it will be always installed on a directory named BSA, in the selected USB Drive.

Also an starter program named bsa.exe will be copied to the USB Drive root Directory.

You can start BSA either by using the bsa.exe starter program or the bsampler.exe program in the BIN directory.
