How to start the PortableApps Platform automatically?

Is it possible the PortableApps Platform starts automatically when I insert the usb-stick in a computer?

Still useful for keeping your apps up to date with the built in updater.

Depends on you

I myself find it useful even if I only have a few apps installed as the starter for the platform is inside the root of the drive and I dont have to go searching for the launcher for my app (start.exe versus /PortableApps/ThunderbirdPortable/ThunderbirdPortable.exe)
Besides that I like the additional features of the platform (backup and updater).

But in the end it comes down wether you yourself find it useful. If you don't, use it differently. Smile
