Is there a way to import existing installations with custom paths into the program?

Here's how it's suggested to import already existing installations into the program:

You can also run the installers directly. As long as you have your portable apps installed to the standard location, they will automatically find your drive, install and tell the menu to refresh.

[Fixed] Platform unable to update K-Meleon Portable

The PA.c Platform's updater is unable to update K-Meleon Portable. It may be due to a bug/limitation in the VersionCompare function in NSIS and its ability to handle large dotted 4 versions like 76.45.2021.1204. I'll be investigating the issue and including a fix in the next platform one way or another. As a workaround for now, please download a K-Meleon Portable manually and install it via the Platform's manual paf.exe install to upgrade it.

Troubles updating to the new version of FFx over the platform

Submitted by Anton_D on October 24, 2021 - 9:04pm

Have to report the following issue: I try to update to the newest version of FFx by manually starting the platform updater from the platform menu. The new version of the FFx was found, downloaded and kinda successfully installed. After the start of the FFx I got the message, that xul.dll isn't compatible with the current version.
