I'm running into some issues with the latest 4.2 release of the PA.com platform.
First of all, I'm running a lot of portable apps from my server, so the path is \\servername\apps\portableapp
This way it doesn't matter what pc I sitting behind at the house, and it's easily copied to a portable HD for using 'on the road.
Buty here are my 'issues':
First I tried to install PA.com onto the server, but it cannot resolve the UNC path and throws a location error. I just installed on a local HD and moved the files over. Workaround> solved!
Next I moved my portable apps over to the proper folder inside the PA.com install, started the PA.com app and all my apps showed up in the menu. Sweet!
But when I manage my apps, and try to update them, I often get a "The device you have selected to install to does not have enough free space for this app".
Not true as there's Gb's of space available on the server.
If I update manually by DL'ing the latest version and installing it over the 'old' version it works just fine.
But this basically defies the purpose of the updater
So it must be something similar to the PA.com install and UNC path's......?
The list of apps that's not updating is quite long, so here it goes:
7-zip, aMSN, Audacity, Celestia, ClamWin, FileZilla, GIMP, InfraRecorder, jPortable, FireFox, Thunderbird, Opera, Pidgin, PNotes, qBittorent, Stellarium, Task Quach, VirtualDub and VLC.
It might be just the beta status of the menu system, or the apps themselfs, but it would be very nice to have this fixed in some upcoming version.
Any tips are very welcome!
P.S. I checked this on a local install with just a couple of apps, and that does work, so it seems it's a UNC related issue..
