I always install my portable apps in a directory without the word "portable", because I think it's useless, once they're all in the PortableApps folder. So, inside the "PortableApps" folder, instead of install, for example, my Firefox portable at FirefoxPortable dir, I install it at Firefox dir, but i've realized that when the word "Portable" is suppressed, the updater can't find any new version. If I rename the dir to FirefoxPortable, the updater works fine.
I guess this is not the expected behavior, cause if the installer allows us to change the name of the destination dir, it's supposed that the updater will understand such change afterwards.
The following tree structures can make it easier to understand:
The updater doesn't work at all: [-] PortableApps [+] Firefox [+] Notepad++ [+] Opera The updater works without any problem: [-] PortableApps [+] FirefoxPortable [+] Notepad++Portable [+] OperaPortable
Can someone explain me this behavior?
I've looked for something about this issue at the forum, but I coudn't find anything.
Sorry, if I'm saying something stupid, but I've already tested this a lot of times and the result is always the same.
Congratulations for the amazing work.
