I just absolutely love PortableApps, and am eagerly awaiting the newest 2.0 release (beta or stable) I am currently using the 2.0 Beta 5 Pre 2 release. I have almost all of the PA.c programs installed (though I don't use all of them, I'd like to try them, y'know?), as well as several other natively portable apps.
Within the last few days, the PA platform has stopped reading the .exe files of a handful of non-PA.c apps that it used to read just fine.
For instance, I have PaleMoon.exe in the PaleMoon directory under PortableApps. I have tried refreshing the app icons at least a dozen times, and PaleMoon doesn't show up. I have noticed several other apps not showing up, as well, that used to show up, but the PaleMoon is the one that I remember at this moment.
What might cause this?
Also, within the same time frame of a few days, PA has stopped changing my wallpaper to show the files under Pictures/Wallpaper, and has reverted to requiring the file Pictures/portableapps_wallpaper.bmp. Now, I may be mistaken on the behavior before (I had been using Geek.menu for a while, and may be thinking it was PA using the Pictures/Wallpaper directory when it wasn't), but the actual CHANGE in behavior only occurred a few days ago, and I've been using PA exclusively for over a month now.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing the phantom .exes not showing up? Or on whether I'm going senile regarding the wallpaper source directory?
Thank you for all the hard work y'all put into this wonderful platform! I first discovered PA a few years ago, and, though I may stray on occasion, I always find myself coming back to PortableApps!
