Is there a no-install version available?

Yes, see below to download. But why do you want a no-install version? The MyDefrag installer is a lot easier to use, will shield you from installation and upgrade problems, makes uninstallation very simple, and can quickly configure several handy things for you that you would have to do yourself with the no-install version.

  • The MyDefrag installer can be run automatically without any user interaction with the "/silent" (progress window visible) or "/verysilent" (no progress window) commandline option. For more information see the "Installer commandline parameters" chapter on the  *  Download and install page.
  • Are you looking for a portable version of MyDefrag to run standalone, for example from a memory stick or a cdrom? That is NOT the same as a no-install distribution. For more information see:  *  How to use MyDefrag from a bootable CD-ROM or memory stick?
  • If you are looking for a no-install version because you do not have administrator rights on the target machine to run the MyDefrag installer, then you will also not have rights to run MyDefrag itself.
  • If you are looking for a no-install version because you want to make your own distribution, then please note item 6 in the MyDefrag  *  License: "You may use and include MyDefrag v4 in other products, provided that you include a full copy of the original MyDefrag v4 distribution." In other words, it is not allowed to include only a part of the MyDefrag distribution, for example the MyDefrag executable.
This is the no-install distribution of MyDefrag. I can think of only one or two very specific cases where it is useful. You should NOT use it to install MyDefrag, you should NOT use it to upgrade MyDefrag, it is NOT a portable version of MyDefrag, it is NOT documented, and it is NOT supported. You have been warned.
