Problem when syncing profiles of TP and TBP (both with GPG/Enigmail)

On my desktop PC I use Thunderbird (with GPG/Enigmail), when I'm out I'm using Thunderbird Portable (with GPG/Enigmail) on my USB hard drive.

To have all my mails on both installations, I tried to sync the profile folder of TP

C:\Documents and Settings\dhoughal\Application Data\Thunderbird\profiles\xyz

to TBP's profile folder

F:\Program Files\ThunderbirdPortable\Data\profile

That worked fine. But when syncing TBP's profile folder back to TB's profile folder and starting my local installation of TB, I get problems with Enigmail, as TBP has reset the GPG executable path in prefs.js to

F:\Program Files\ThunderbirdPortable\app\gpg\gpg.exe

TBP seems to have a function (maybe in its launcher) to reset the GPG executable path.

Any ideas how to reset the path after syncing the profile back to my local TB installation?

Cheers

Manually

You have to do it manually right now. Portable Apps Sync, which will be out in beta soon, will automatically fix things like this for you.

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

I personally would have TBP

I personally would have TBP on my HD instead of TB if I wanted to synchronize, but if you insist on having a regular TB on your HD, simply move TBP to the same drive as TB, and run it (with SkipCompregFix and SkipChromeFix set to false, of course). Then drive letter references will be fixed when you synch for your regular TB.

Vintage!
