I try to walk my first steps in Arduino and purchased a Nano PR2040. I downloaded the IDE 2.0.0-B9 but it looks like there is now reasonable way to run it offline. I found a old threat about this problem for a older version of an IDE. It was mentioned that creating a folder called "portable" will force the Module Manager to store all downloaded files into this folder instead of the typical User - folders. I tried to install the IDE on a laptop with internet access, loaded uncompressed the zip download file and started the board manager, but he ignored this folder and used the user folders.
The idea was to download all packages I need on a different laptop, copy the portable folder or the whole IDE- Program folder to the final targed pc.
Actually this way do not work beause the Manager use the user folders and this is too much work, to copy all related sub folders. Additonally I do not know what is going on with the registry.
Are there any recommendations how I can use the IDE 2.0.0-B9 and the final version later on in a offline mode?
