Portable version of LogicalDoc

I would like to make logicalDoc portable - to be able to run it from a USB flash device.
Im quite new to logicalDoc and Im not 100% sure this feature does not already exist, but I noticed that during the setup process one need to enter a full absolute path to the repository folder.
In order to be portable, logicalDoc should use relative paths instead of absolute paths when it accesses its files.

Is there an existing way to make logicalDoc portable ? if not then can this feature be added (rather by changing the current version or by creating a new, portable version) ?

I found how to make logicalDOC portable (I use community edition):
1. download the bundle file, not the installer (
2. unzip the file.
3. under the logicalDOC folder, create a repository folder (I named it "repository").
4. As the readme file instructs, start it twice.
4. At the setup phase, when entering the repository location, just type the name of the folder you created in step 3. No full path, just the folder name.

That's all, now it can work off a USB memory or a cloud storage. Everything is contained in one portable directory.

It works for me, I hope it will work for you too.
