Chrome dont run properly in another partition!

I can not run Chrome on my partition.

When I start it does not open any page, or even settings.

The screens are white!

I have windows 7.

When caught and put his briefcase on the desktop, it works!

The same happens with Iron and beta and dev.

Someone could help me?

Explain?

Could you please explain more about how you've got it set up?

I installed it normally like Firefox and other programs.

But do not run Chorme and Iron are more or less like the image attached.

But if I get the chrome folder, for example, which is installed in R:\PortableApps\GoogleChromePortable and put on the desktop. It works!

It is not possible to open any site, or other settings or menu option.

Network Drive

Are you running this from a network drive mapped to a drive letter? If so, it won't work. Chrome/Chromium/Iron/etc do no function from network drives, whether portable or not. It's a known bug in the app itself and, from what I see, it seems unlikely it will ever be fixed.

R?

How is it the R drive then? Are you mapping a partition to a directory or just have an internal 2nd hard drive that's setup as R?

Mapping partition to a directory and I gave the name of the letter R.

Other programs run perfectly.

That's Why

I'd wager that's why then. I'm pretty sure Windows treats a mapping like that similar to a network mapping. And there's a long-standing bug in Chrome/Chromium/Iron (and all browsers based on them) that won't let it work right from there. It only affects these apps and it's a bug in the base app itself (not the portable stuff we add) and there is no indication they plan to fix it. In short, you need a real drive letter associated with a real drive's root for it to work.

solution for chromium based browsers apps from network drive

-----
Hi.

I found a solution that works for me. It is simple: run .exe file with parameter --no-sandbox

Example: Z:\\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe --no-sandbox
Example: \\PortableApps\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe --no-sandbox

good luck!
