Install From app store

Submitted by traynor1987 on April 17, 2020 - 9:22am


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?


PortableApps does not update

Submitted by Lila Boc on March 26, 2020 - 10:27pm


Previously, whenever I ran BitTorrent, I noticed numerous connections (about 30) from the same IP address with different port numbers. No traffic seems to be happening on those connections. When I killed the connections, they always reappeared immediately. For one torrent, the connections have the same IP addresses, but the address is random from the to range.

Lazy/on demand installation.

Is it possible to avoid to :
- show all applications (from the PortableApps menu) AND
- have access to the help and documentation about each one (from the search menu of PortableApps) BUT
- install by the way each application on demand ONLY
- when is necessary after having a look on its documentation (from the PortableApps menu)

In order to avoid to install all application only to have access to its help for example.

Thank you and best regards.

Platform menu doesn’t disappear after starting some application sometimes.

Submitted by Anton_D on February 17, 2020 - 2:50am


I didn’t find such already exiting topic here, so I write this new one. Sometimes the menu of the platform doesn’t disappear (minimize) after starting the application and simply stays here, in spite of the setting that tells to do so. This happens sporadically and I can’t see a pattern here.

So my first question is: how to find the reasons of this issue? Would be logging activation as a first step be enough or could I do more to get the required information for this bug?

Sincerely yours, Anton.
