I knew this would happen...

I knew this would happen no one here is willing to test my project because it uses the .net framework I have made a release for the portable apps format for this project for a year and have not tried to get it tested here because i thought no one would test it and i was right... All i wanted to know is if it was done correctly.

If i cant get testing for this and one of my users has an issue with the build I'm going to be forced to remove the support for portable apps from my project due to the lack of support from the portable apps community.

Helping hints

See the comments I wrote over on Game Downloader, all of which can be applied to this. Cheers, again.

Feedback

appicon.ico:
You don't need the 4-bit icons, otherwise all good.

launcher.ini
See notes from Game Downloader, just replace "GameDownloader" with "GetLinux" where necessary.

DefaultData
See notes from Game Downloader, but you don't need the ThemeColor: line in DefaultData\Settings.cfg

installer.ini
Because you store the downloaded icons in App\GetLinux\Data\Icons (and I assume there is no way to change it) you will need to handle this so it isn't deleted on upgrade/re-install. I don't think it needs moving backwards and forwards like Settings.ini does, so just create App\AppData\installer.ini with the following:

[DirectoriesToPreserve]
PreserveDirectory1=App\GetLinux\Data

installer.ini

Regarding installer.ini - it should be in App\Appinfo, not App\AppData

installer.ini

Both programs have a built in updating system that replaces the old executable with the new one, will this cause an issue with App/Appinfo/installer.ini?
