I just reformatted and reinstalled my OS (Win XP Pro SP3) and I planned on using mostly portable apps to keep my hard drive cleaner. First I installed Google Chrome Portable (5.0.375.86) but I can never get it to open. I double-click on the icon and nothing happens. I checked the Task Manager and I might see the process open for a second but then it goes away. The weird thing is that I can run the same version off a USB flash drive. I even copied that folder on to my hard drive and it wouldn't open.
Is this app programmed not to open from a local hard drive?
