I've been using PortableApps on a portable hard drive (USB connected) for years and never had a problem before. Today, I restarted my PC and clicked my PortableApps 'start' shortcut to find that my usual PortableApps menu had turned flat green with lots of 'lblAppButton02, lblAppButton02, and so on instead of my app entries.
I tried to (re)install the latest version but the install fails with:
Error opening file for writing:
Click abort to stop ..... etc.
Having read various past forum threads, I checked my drive with chkdsk and Crystal Disk Info (all good apparently), unmounted and remounted the drive, etc., tried to reinstall as Admin, but to no avail.
I can go directly to my apps and start them without any apparent problem - everything else seems to work fine - but I can't get past this platform/menu issue. Does anybody have any idea what this sudden problem might be?
Thanks in advance - Bob Yorke
