File Access Denied

Submitted by PeterMNZ on April 10, 2022 - 4:45am

I have a 1 TB USB Drive which I use reasonably regularly.
My PC is a Win 10 HP computer 64 bit, a few years old.

Now when Portable Apps opens it minimises after saying "file access denied".
At the same time it does call and install updates.

Can anyone please help??

How to have menu also use apps in another folder?

Submitted by thebanndditt on April 4, 2022 - 4:51pm

Hello, let's assume PortableApps platform and apps are installed to


but we also want to have the PortableApps launcher/menu etc be able to see/recognize other folders; to be able to have portable apps in more than 1 folder.

eg. C:\UTILS is where we would like some utilities to go.

Yes, I am aware that a PortableApp can be standalonei nstalled to C:\UTILS, and that is what we have done, and created a shortcut for.
But we also want to be able to launch a PortableApp that is in C:\UTILS from the PortableApps launcher/menu.

Source code of the installer use by PortableApps Platform?

Submitted by PosterFish92 on March 31, 2022 - 3:18am

it seems like installer used by PortableApps Platform is different from installers used by other portable apps the platform gives options like "new install", "upgrade", "selecting cloud folders"

i am interested in the cloud folders part, how are these detected (i know they are searched in standard paths but where are these paths)

so where is the source code of this, i checked many but cant find the mention of detecting cloud folders
