I just created my account and gave a donation to get the app downloaded, but wherever I try I can't get to a ppoint to download without another donation. Please help.
New: Gopherus (Feb 14, 2023), Platform 24.1 (Feb 13, 2023)
450+ real apps (49GB), 1 billion downloads, Please donate.
No donation is required to download the PortableApps.com Platform. There's a big Download Now button on the download page that will download it directly: https://portableapps.com/download
When you click it, it will open up another page in a new tab (or window on the rare chance your browser is configured that way) to explain how to install, but your download is still happening in that first tab. It's just a 5-10 second pause on SourceForge so the ads display (that's how they fund downloads).
If your download is not working for some reason, please switch back to the previous tab and let us know if there's any sort of error message.
If you'd like your donation back since you thought you had to pay to download, just let me know and I'll refund it in Paypal. Our software has always been free to use, pay what you want to support us.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
