Something to check

I can't test or check your app because I don't have working Windows computer currently set up, but the first thing to try when an app won't run (if you have the other base stuff in launcher.ini configured correctly like paths etc.) is to set the working directory.

Thanks for the reply

I have read the manual a lot of times ( Although I don't understand custom.nsh and some other advanced use of the manual). Btw, I had made a lot of portable apps before. But I have never made a portable app like this. This app does not start without appdir's Main exe. I can deal with registry, file, directory move etc. But this app does not require those things. It save's all the settings of the App in Settings.xml file in the AppDir. And as it is already portable it does not leave any data.

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=AvroKeyboard\Avro Keyboard.exe
WorkingDirectory=%PAL:AppDir%\AvroKeyboard
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SupportsUNC=yes

The app only starts with Avro Keyboard.exe from AppDir. It does not start with PAL.
