Wrong install path, files have to be moved manually

Hello there,
I use the latest Verison 28.0.1 on Win10 64bit.

When I upgrade the Platform (App Updates are fine) it is installed in the wrong path.
Current path to platform: C:\Portables\PortableApps.com\PortableAppsPlatform.exe
Path where updates are installed to: C:\PortableApps.com\PortableAppsPlatform.exe

So I have to move the files to the correct path manually. Not bad, but unnecessary.

Is there a way to change the installpath? Shouldn't the new version just be installed where the old version is?

Thx 4 F1.

If you are directly executing the PortableApps.com_Platform_Setup_XX.X.X.paf.exe, then you should have a choice for the path. Otherwise, give details to reproduce your case.

Don't Change PortableApps

You should not change the PortableApps directory containing the PortableApps.com directory. The PortableApps.com Platform is keyed to use it specifically. The Start.exe launcher will not work without it either.

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