He means the REGULAR task coach is popular. However, I had never heard of it untill now. I think the porable version is more popular than the origional.

First, as always, support requests go in the support forum, not as comments on a news story.

Second, this looks like a bug with the app itself (and not a portable issue), so it should be reported to the app developers.

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

writing an algorithm is a great deal
writing one to organise your ideas is simply perfect
writing a task manager "portable" will blow minds

thanks for your sharings !
