it may be related with special "corporate policies" which apply definitely to my hardware used mainly with PortableApps, but I'm facing an annoying issue. First of all, my configuration:
- Dell Lattitude E5570 w/ Intel i5-6300U @ 2.4 GHz / 16 GB RAM, full touch support
- Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64, german locales
- PortableApps 14.4
- Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 v10.2.4.674
- PortableApps Installation Folder: %UserProfile%/Tools/PortableApps
PortableApps platform isn't started automatically w/ the operating system or user logon, so I start it manually when needed. Since this release (14.4) or the release before, I encounter the following issue: at exact the point I start PortableApps platform (PortableAppsPlatform.exe) all of my Windows desktop icons disappear and reappear by PortableApps platform close. Funny, eh? I can make the desktop icons appear again and with platform running, by use of the Windows desktop context menu: de-select "View > Show Desktop Icons" and click "Show Desktop Icons" again -> the icons are there as expected before.
With another Notebook I've got access to running Windows 10 Enterprise x64, there's no desktop icon issue w/ PortableApps platform 14.3 and 14.4.
Any hints? Any idea what's going on there?
Please check under Options - Advanced tab, if Hide Desktop icons is checked (Optionen - Erweitert - Desktop Symbole verstecken). Unchecking it should do the trick.
