Hi everyone. I've known about portable apps for a long time, but I'm just starting to use them. (They're great!) If my questions seem dumb or naive, please forgive them. I semi-retired from sofware engineering 15 yrs ago (after 30 years professional development), and I have some rust, but the bulb it still medium bright.
I'm here at the moment because I've been searching for several hours about this file called Start.exe which is mentions in dozens of posts, implying that it's a critical file needed by portable apps, especially if you want to transfer your pa setup to another computer or flash drive. The problem is that I'm running Windows 10, and I find no file Start.exe anywhere on my system -- not in the root of where pa is, nor in any other place.
Is it always necessary? Is there some alternate file if you are using the pa platform?
(I find it hard to believe that Start.exe is always necessary, since I'm running the pa platform on my system without problems and Start.exe doesn't exist on my system.)
Am I missing something about this? If anyone can shed some light on this, I would greatly appreciate it.
P.S. Is there a forum for suggestions? (I'm not criticizing the site, but websites evolve in stages, and sometimes become unintentionally confusing for new users, and I'd like to give some feedback on a few things that could be easily remedied [I know, in software development, nothing is easily remedied], but in at least one or two cases, I'm talking about thinks as simple as text changes in menu items.)
