Installer LOOP

Hello, I try and install PortableApps and it just goes to install loop, which means that I walk in the loop, and do not get any "start program" at all, it will only install and set up, no matter how I try, though it is built on my USB device or if it is on my computer. There are some who feel like and try and help me? haha?

Version 3.4.4

Installer vs. Platform

I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to accomplish. It looks like you're creating the PortableApps.comInstaller installation file.

Unless you're developing an application, there's no need to create an installation file at all.

If, on the other hand, you're trying to install the platform (or menu) run the file downloaded from

Running Installer

It appears you are running the Installer feeding it an input of its own directory G: \ Portapp \ PortableApps.comInstaller on the command line.

The Installer is designed to package your portable apps when they are complete. Downloading and running it will not install any apps.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
