[Fixed] PortableApps.com Platform App Database has typo in category for fscPortable

The Portable App Directory lists "FastStone Capture via fscPortable" at the end of the "Games" category, out of alphabetical order and in the wrong category, instead of in the correct "Graphics and Pictures" category.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Open PortableApps.com Platform
  2. Click Apps > Get More Apps... > By Category
  3. Find FastStone Capture via fscPortable listed at the bottom of the Games category
Possible cause:

The PortableApps.com Platform App Database (update.ini) lists the category for 'fscPortable' as "Graphics & Pictures" instead of "Graphics and Pictures", which is how other apps in that category are listed.

The use of an ampersand symbol "&" instead of "and" may be causing this bug.

See examples:

[fscPortable]
Name=FastStone Capture via fscPortable
Description=Screen capture utility
Category=Graphics & Pictures
SubCategory=Screen Capture
URL=https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/fscportable
[FSViewerPortable]
Name=FastStone Image Viewer Portable 
Description=Photo viewer & organizer
Category=Graphics and Pictures
SubCategory=Image Viewers
URL=https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/faststone-image-viewer-portable

(Minor bug in forum posts: ampersand symbol "&" is being converted to HTML entity "&" inside code blocks using Markdown formatting.)

System details:
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro (Version 1803) 64-bit
  • Install path: D:\apps\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\PortableAppsPlatform.exe
  • New or upgrade: new

Fixed this a while back but forgot to update the bug. Thanks for the heads up.

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