Parsec Portable App For Windows

If you do not have administrator privileges on the computer you are using, or would like to run Parsec from a USB stick, you can download the portable version of Parsec.

The portable version of Parsec, when launched, opens a browser window to https://ui.parsecgaming.com where you can log in with your Parsec username and password.

If you are on Windows 7, and your default browser is Internet Explorer - you will receive a white screen.  Please visit https://ui.parsecgaming.com using Google Chrome.

The portable version requires the following internet browsers to work correctly;

Windows 10

  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome

Windows 7

  • Google Chrome

HOSTING ON PORTABLE APP

Although you can host using the Portable application, your friends controllers will not work unless you install the ViGEm controller driver - this will require administrator privileges and a restart of your computer.

Parsec uses an open source virtual controller driver called ViGEm maintained by Benjamin Höglinger (nefarius). The driver and library are under an MIT License.

LOGGING OUT OF THE PORTABLE APP

1) Right click the Parsec icon in the task tray (by your computers time) and click "Logout"
