This requires a JDK and is hard coded in the launcher to use OpenJDK Portable.
There is a known bug where Recent Files don't work on a UNC Drive. There needs to be a launcher adaptation (likely in PAL 3.0) to fix this without custom code.
In order to preserve settings after upgrades, you will have to go to Options and press the import button at the bottom. If using 7.2.1, copy everything in Data\userdir to Data\userdir\7.2.1 (7.3+ will sort this way). When browsing, choose "All Files" instead of zip files, and choose the userdir\whatever.version.number (EX: userdir\7.2.1). Check all settings and let the app restart.
