"Pidgin.exe was not found."

On my USB flash drive, I have the directory structure set like so:

/
    - PortableApps/
        - FirefoxPortable/
        - PidginPortable/
        - FirefoxPortable.exe (not a shortcut)
        - PidginPortable.exe (also not a shortcut)

In the above sample, I can double-click on FirefoxPortable.exe (outside of the Firefox Portable directory) and it will run.

However, when I double-click on PidginPortable.exe (also outside of the Pidgin Portable directory), I get "Pidgin.exe was not found. Please check your configuration". If I run PidginPortable.exe from it's normal location (/PortableApps/PidginPortable/PidginPortable.exe), it works fine.

I have 7 portable apps set up as above, but Pidgin Portable is the only one of them that fails to run in this configuration.

Any ideas?

I think...

And I can't say for sure, but I don't think that configuration will be supported anymore.

No longer supported

That configuration is no longer supported in any of the new apps.

Phew.

Finally got complete Clarification. So I can take that out. And It's JUST DisableSplash and AdditionalParams for all apps now, because the AppExecutable was a handy one. Is it because it confuses people, or is it to make the launcher smaller and easier to understand?

Necessity

It's only necessary for apps that are regularly blocked (Firefox, Thunderbird, etc).

The goal is to make it all easier from both a user perspective and a maintenance perspective.

Ahh, ok.

Yea, works for me, as long as you leave it in for the apps you mentioned above, and like Pidgin.

Oh, shoot... I was afraid of that. Oh well.

Thanks for the info, John. And keep up the good work. Wink

Menu

Any reason you're not using the menu? Have you tried the new betas?

It seemed no one was using anything but the defaults any longer, so the decision was made to not add it in to new apps... and to strip it from older ones if newly added features would be made more complex by keeping it.

I am now :-)

Actually, I started using the menu in response to this news. I wasn't before because I just thought it was a bit of overkill and my setup was working well enough for me, but the menu's actually quite nice.

*thumbs up*
