Software Restriction Policies - DLL issues

Submitted by Aikiki on May 8, 2020 - 6:37pm

So, the PortableApps launcher runs some temporary files (DLLs) from the temp folder (C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\).

This is a problem if there are Software Restriction Policies with DLL rules. Unless that Temp folder is whitelisted the portable apps won't run. It will show an error "Another instance of [portable app] is starting...".

Is there a workaround for this, that doesn't involve whitelisting the Temp folder?

New Chrome Portable Version Not Detected

Submitted by wwwKris on May 3, 2020 - 6:19am

Portable Apps Platform doesn't seem to be detecting that a new version of Chrome is available on My installed version is 80 but the latest version is 81. I tried running a manual update through Apps > Check for Updates but it doesn't show the new version either.

Platform version is 16.1.1 and Chrome was installed through the platform into the default directory.

Hello, my name is Roberto!

I've been making use of this software almost for two years and since a month ago I have noticed that updater can't connect to update apps. Same issue occures on two computers that I have.

I'm runnig PortableApps 16.1.1 on Windows 10 Home 1909.

I have checked configuration on my firewall and Updater has full permission.

Install From app store

Long time follower. I've just downloaded and installed portable apps platform onto my WD MYhome drive. This is the second time I have done it, the first time I did it was last year and it worked fine. Now when I've installed it and try to install a app from the built in wizard, you tick the app you want and then what do you do? Next is greyed out so I cannot continue further.

Do I need to manually download ever paf file off the website that I want?
