I'm working on adding legacy builds of our officially-released apps that have dropped support for Windows XP, Vista, or 7 to the base app homepages. The goal is to make them easier to find for folks on legacy systems. I'm listing out completed packages and packages that are being researched and built below. The packages are designed to install alongside your main app installs and won't be updated to the latest version - breaking compatibility with your legacy OS - by the PA.c Platform. We don't need copies of any of the apps listed, thanks.

Outdated Official Portable Applications

Welcome to the outdated apps tracker. Please post a comment for any outdated official apps that aren't already listed with AppName Version as the title (no dashes, Vs or other text). Before posting a request, please make sure that their stable Windows build is available and they have been announced by their publisher (just being available on a download/ftp server, github, or 3rd party site doesn't count as the app may not yet be official). Comments will be deleted as they are added.

I'm having issues with chrome portable legacy 109 pinging and getting blocked in my firewall (because I block all ICMP) on every link I click with it. I would like to try version 108 but when I try to install it it says error downloading 404

Is it not possible to get a previous version?


Notepad++ Launcher has bugs

Submitted by At Libitum on May 13, 2024 - 11:00am

There's a couple of bugs in the launcher that are to put it mildly, annoying as all heck.

When you use the plugin manager to install/remove a plugin and have the "Customize Toolbar" plugin installed. Any customization to the toolbar is always reset.

Likewise if you have the DSpellCheck plugin installed, the libraries are gone afer a relaunch.

After installing/removing a plugin, I have to relaunch Notepad++ two additional times after the initial relaunch to get the Plugins Admin menu option back

VLC xspf file path not relative

Submitted by Jim_Norman on May 8, 2024 - 8:59pm

I am finding that the VLC Playlist file (.xspf) contains an absolute path which will not work if you use the USB flash drive on a computer where the assigned drive letter is different. I tried several changes to the path and none worked. I searched for this problem and I only found posts from 2008 and no solution. Is there a solution to this problem?
