i had already posted similar in another, wrong section and under the wrong heading - apologies. but after 11 years of totally problem-free updating it made me nervous to see the same fault on three computers (all WIN 7, one 32, two 64bit), on two HDD installations, and by now on now 5 USB sticks (which actually should be and are more or less independent of the OS).
when going thru the normal update procedure, the mssg pops up that first the platform need update. fine, has always been like this.
when trying to install the update, it comes up with '' ERROR OPENING FILE FOR WRITING ...\...\PortableAppsPlatform.exe. ''
choice of ABORT RETRY IGNORE, even after ABORT used, on next start it comes up with '' Cannot open file \...\...\App\Graphics\Chrome\matte.png '' - and that was it.
(( the \...\... stand for the path, usually \PortableApps\ ))
no way to start PA after that. luckily, all of us (but my wife) had full backups - so no real damage - but what is going on?
greetings - heinz -
