Portable Apps That Need Updated Installers

Many existing apps we have need updated installers as they are using an older version that doesn't support silent mode with the new app directory. Note that apps will show their installer briefly if they need to ask you a question (agree to a license you haven't yet, pick an option it can't automatically determine, etc). And please note that if you close the platform while the updater is running, ALL installers will run non-silently.

Please make a note of any apps that need an updated installer or format in this thread. Comments will be deleted as apps are added to this list and apps will be removed as they are updated. Last updated: 2015-06-07

Outdated installers - 2TB+ Issue (Earlier than PA.c Installer 3.0 has a bug with 2TB+ drives)
This bug manifests itself as a dismissible error as you select the directory to install to.

Outdated Installers - English EULA
Earlier than 3.0.11 will show the EULA with English GUI when installing from platform app store when set in another language. No additional official apps should be affected other than those listed.

English clues

If someone is using English are there any clues they should look out for or will we be relying on non-English users to notice?

portability is like flexibility, you either have it or you don't.
I allow adverts on PortableApps.com to help pay for this all, you should consider doing so too.

All Accounted For

That's all the apps accounted for. It's based on installer version, which is now tracked in the updater DB. There's no need to track down other apps suffering from the EULA bug. And it only affects when installed via the platform. It's done to work around an actual bug in the installer itself that would prevent automatic installation. Setting it to English works around that. So, the platform sets the app to run in English for installers of specific versions.
