I'm in a pickle with a new USB stick, wondering whether to install 12beta2 or 11 for an elderly computer illiterate. The stick will run overseas on borrowed PCs or at net cafes. Myself, I have never used PortableApps, but am a computer whiz.
First I saw the notice about 12 shipping for the holidays, so I waited. Later I read of Haller's schedule slip from hurricane and health issues which are understandable. So what wisdom have the crowds for me.
The feature I wonder about is file association. It is slotted for 12b3 or later? Is there any clue about the next beta release ETA? Should I wait for it, use 12b2, or use v11?
Thanks very much to John and his team for this wonderful resource.
Either should be fine for your elderly friend. There is a small chance that a beta could have an issue preventing a later automatic upgrade, though, so it may be better to stick with stable for someone who is unable to download and install things themselves, if that is a worry.
You're welcome for the software. I'm glad you find it useful.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
Please answer file association.
What I see happening is: "I clicked the file but Windows says it can't open it, what do I do now?"
So I want to learn what PA file association is all about and ETA within beta cycles.
I was also puzzled about some forum or blog about v11 needing two apps for some particular move, whereas v12 only needs one.
