GnuCash Portable 5.5 is missing online transactions download feature

I used to have online transaction download configured for GnuCash portable. This feature is missing in latest release 5.5. In other words, there is no online banking setup option available, but the aqbanking binaries are shipped in the application package. What should I configure/install in addition to have this feature available again?

No Changes

There have been no changes in the launcher's handling of aqbanking. The version of aqbanking hasn't changed between the last couple releases and the 5.5 release, it's still version 44. The launcher is properly setting the paths in aqbanking.reg on first run as well.

What path are you running it from? What are the contents of the aqbanking.reg within GnuCashPortable\Data\settings?

Running as Admin?

And you're running GnuCash Portable as admin correct? And it worked in the previous version with your same setup without changes?

issue not related to aqbanking.reg missing folders

I checked the configured aqbanking.reg folders with gnucash 5.4.1 installed with the same outcome as with release 5.5. The difference appears to be canned into the executable. Release 5.4.1 has online actions available and release 5.5 shows no online actions available for the configured bank account. Same when 5.5 executable was launched from privileged power shell session.

Try Local?

I don't have the means to try out the online banking functionality to see if it even works in GnuCash 5.5 itself. If you're able, would you mind temporarily installing it to see if it is still working?
