Multiple install locations

Hi! I'm running the portableapps suite from my dropbox folder and it all works great, but I'm wondering if it is possible to add applications on other directories, since apps like libreoffice can take a lot of space, I don't want them taking up my dropbox space.

So, to say, I have the portableapps suite in C:\Users\User\Dropbox\Portableapps, can I add apps in C:\Portableapps\ and have them appear in the portableapps suite menu?

Not Currently

You can't do this currently. You will be able to manually create shortcuts to apps in another location shortly, though.

Unfortunately, the apps you place in another location won't work with the app store or updater as those will only support the PortableApps directory that's a part of the platform. So, you'd need to manually update those apps.

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