Getting a port turned into a PBI

If you wish to keep your favorite port across system updates, there is more than one way to accomplish this, but soon to become common is the creation of a PBI. The process of turning a port into a PBI can be a very simple matter of either using pbi_makeport from the commandline, or the GUIfied EasyPBI program. However, not every port submits so easily to this conversion process, and sometimes extra interaction is needed in order to succeed. The purpose of this area is to help document how those challenging ports get turned into PBIs and also perhaps, by way of this information, assist with improvement to the tools that would automate the process.

Note: This page pertains to PBI version 9.

What has been Attempted

Table: Ports that have been attempted. Is this version of the port a One-Click PBI creation candidate?

One-click candidates are fully functional but can have minor flaws, such as a generic desktop/menu icon, or appearing in lost & found. Some ports have various non-default options which may prevent creation or cause a substantially different PBI to be made that either performs differently or lacks certain features (such as NLS).
