According to the GoldWave v5.68 manual:
To create a portable installation:

1. Install GoldWave on a flash drive or other removable storage drive. GoldWave will install settings in the Windows registry initially.

2. Run GoldWave from that drive with the -portinit command line parameter to copy registry settings to an XML file on the drive.

If GoldWave finds an XML file in the program file's folder, it loads and saves settings from that file and does not use the Windows registry. Note that some plug-ins may still use the Windows registry and may not function correctly.
