some applications will not start but quit with an error message, like “this application cannot start from an UNC path…”. This happens for all applications which have a directory “Launcher” under “App\AppInfo” and I try to start from a mapped share. Here some of them which do not start:
- Foxit Reader
- Gnu Cash (does not shows an error message, but will not start)
- Irfan View
- Sweet Home 3D
Many other works fine, so I would be glad if this can be fixed (I guess with a newer installer version).
This only happens on Windows 7 computer. With Windows XP the applications above work fine.
I also recognized that the Portable Apps Manager will have a problem with Windows 7 too, because he shows the UNC path instead of the mapped drive (linke in XP) and shows a negative free disk space.
