Updater: Calm the updater

During an update done by PortableApps.coms Updater some applications asked always for a folder name and if this applications should be installed.
This might be right for an installer, but a Updater should work calm and without interaction with the user, or?

Is it possible to do the update processes quiet?
(Wasn't this the behaviour before?)

Keep the platform open

Stop closing the platform while the updater is running. The installers depend on the platform.

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

I have that same problem as

I have that same problem as well...This is with the platform still opened. For every update I had to manually install each program after it all downloaded. I am not exactly sure what is causing this type of issue.

Reboot update scan

Reboot your PC. Be sure you've applied all windows updates. Don't run the platform with any special permissions. It must be run under your current user account. Be sure you haven't messed up the permissions of the drive the platform is running from. Scan for viruses.

The only time the installer asks you to select a directory is if it can't see the platform installed to the relative path or can't detect the platform running. Either the drive permissions or windows itself have to be seriously messed up for this situation to occur.

Maybe this is an answer to a wrong thread?

Still

This problem is still an issue. Platform left open, Windows restarted and up-to-date.
