Program Files is Unsupported

Do not install portable apps to your Program Files. That's for local, normal apps only. Portable apps store their data within their directory which Windows 7 does not like and will cause error messages.

You should install all your portable apps you want to install to your local hard drive to C:\PortableApps

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