Miranda is portable by default and if Sounds folder is inside Miranda folder - there should be relative pathes.

yeah, that's the funniest thing I've read for months here :)
Miranda is portable itself, from the very beginning. it works in relative paths only for about 10 years and doesn't need any crutches for that

I suggest setting the received files dir to something like this:

%miranda_path%\Received Files\%nick%\

this will make things work regardless of where you put your miranda.

As others pointed out, Miranda is - by nature and by default - portable. You don't need any special "portable version" of miranda since every version if portable, hehe.
