I used to own 2 computers that have both been trashed in the past week, so now I don't own a computer anymore, but I still have a flash drive with all my data backed up on it. All files are in TrueCrypt container files on the flash drive, which I created using TrueCrypt, and later was able to use VeraCrypt to open. Those programs were installed on my computers, which I no longer have. So now I use the computers at the public library. They don't give me Administrator privledges. So in order to open my TrueCrypt / VeraCrypt containers and have access to my data, I need a Portable version of one of those programs--or another program that is similar to those.
So far, I tried getting a Portable version of VeraCrypt and found instructions online to simply Extract the files rather than clicking Install after downloading the program in order to make it Portable. I did that, but then couldn't find what I was instructed to do next. It said, "After you extract files from the VeraCrypt self-extracting package, you can directly run VeraCrypt.exe". Where is this VeraCrypt.exe located? I don't see that file name. If I knew what they were talking about, this would probably be the easiest method for me to run the program.
Right now on my flash drive, I have a VeraCrypt folder with files in it after clicking on Extract Files as opposed to Install. Most of them are language files. I clicked all the ones listed as type "Application", but keep getting the error message that I need to be an Administrator. I don't know what else to do at this point.
I don't see anywhere where I'm given the option of running VeraCrypt.exe. I don't see that anywhere. Can someone help me with this?
