Hi : I can no longer launch the portable apps platform. The launcher , by which I mean the "start portable apps.com" icon, a 145kb .exe file, for the portable apps platform no longer works. It gives me the usual gui shape but all the applications icons are replaced with plain text "lblportable app 0x".
I get an error message that says "Cannot open file "D:\Portable apps platform\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\App\Graphics\MenuButtons\button_close_normal.png". The system cannot find the file specified".
I've used my portable apps platform many times before, and it just stopped working today. I can open the Portable Apps folder and start the individual applications singly.
So my main question is what can I do to get the start launcher going again?
A second question is whether I can just reinstall the launcher and transfer over the Portable Apps folder. I would hate to have to reinstall everything.
I have an Dell 6520 laptop with an Intel core i7 processor, Windows 7 ultimate OS, and 8gb of ram. I'm running my portable apps platform from an 8gb usb flash drive with 1.3 gb free. I read the discussion on page two of the forum and it said that reinstalling won't work. I also just added a temp folder to my USB drive.
