Possible Trojan Detected in AIMP

Submitted by salavine1 on April 13, 2017 - 1:38pm

Hello
My company monitors and scans everything and I mean everything. It has flagged the download at http://download3.portableapps.com/portableapps/aimpportable/AIMPPortable... as being a trogan. At the current time I don't have any other way to confirm it. Can anyone else check it out?

Sometimes they get things wrong, but more times then not they are right on.

Thanks.

Apps settings saved locally

Submitted by berserk on February 18, 2017 - 10:41am

I'm running Windows 7 Home Edition, 64 bit. I installed PortableApps on a USB drive. I'm running Microsoft Security essentials with windows firewall.
I noticed apps save settings to the local machine instead of the external drive.
This goes for *each* app I installed.
List of apps I installed:
7-ZipPortable
AntRenamerPortable
AscGen
AudacityPortable
AvidemuxPortable
BlenderPortable
BlueGriffonPortable
BOUMLPortable
CamStudioPortable
CornicePortable
DiaPortable

Opera auto updates

Submitted by smuike on February 7, 2017 - 3:44pm

Today I check via PortableApps for updates and when I saw Opera updated to 42.0.2393.517 I accepted and hit Next.
All ran smoothly, as usual, and the update installed.
I started Opera (OperaPortable.exe) and checked the About page and immediately Opera contacted home (37.228.108.171) and the version line said that I must restart - "Restart Opera to update to version 43.0.2442.806" with the button behind "Relaunch Now"

Launcher Generator

Submitted by JW01 on January 30, 2017 - 4:21am

I have downloaded and installed Soda PDF 3D Reader (which has a page turning feature) on my online laptop, but I am unable to install it on my offline desktop with its larger screen because the installation process accesses the internet.
I am looking at making Soda PDF portable and so I installed Launcher and NSIS, but I am totally confused.
Firstly, can I be quite clear that Launcher will do what I want?
If so, I fell at the first hurdle.
When I start Launcher and tell it where the program is I get the following message:

GnuCash Terminates Instantly on Windows 7

Submitted by ajax on December 22, 2016 - 12:50pm

Updating to Version 2.6.14 (according to portableapps.com) results in not being able to start GnuCash on Windows 7. I have both a 32bit and 64bit computer running W7 and get the same result on both computers. Also, tried running as administrator but same result. When trying to launch the program a window is briefly displayed which closes immediately.

Marble fails to start

Submitted by PClough on November 19, 2016 - 5:21am

Suddenly Marble has decided that it wouldn't start. I get a message saying:
"This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows"
It suggests to reinstall the apps, which I did. But it still gives me the same message.
I'm running Win 10 with the latest patches.
