My university does not (quite understandably) provide administrative rights to users on their public machines (which run only MS Windows 7 OS). As a regular vim user, I use a lot of plugins (particularly latex plugins), and my vimrc uses Vim-Plug for managing plugins.

I have got around the problem of using vim partially by using the portable version of gvim from here: https://portableapps.com/apps/development/gvim_portable

I am able to clone and use my personal vimrc from github, and the machines have git installed. I was able to get my generic vim-customisations applied, so it's confirmed that gvim-portable indeed recognises my vimrc. However, vim-plug is not working, and throws up a ton of error messages. (I have manually downloaded vim_plug file and dropped it into drive_letter\gVimPortable\Data\settings\vimfiles\autoload folder)

Is there a way to get around this issue?
