PApps Menu with Win2000

Submitted by Matty on November 27, 2007 - 2:24pm

I've just started trying to use PortableApps on with Win2k and can't get it to work. It just says:

PortableAppsMen.exe has generated errors and will be closed.....

I searched for this error, and found a thread that says that the bug should have been fixed in a prior version. So should it be working then???

(I should get a newer computer, I know...)

Make portable apps cross platform

Submitted by toucher5 on November 23, 2007 - 12:13pm

I enjoy using portable apps. However I can only use it on Windows machines. I use Ubuntu Linux on my laptop. I would like to see portable apps being able to be cross platform compliant. Just thought that I would throw that idea out. I would like to suggest this to my customers that come to [link removed] but if they use anything other than windows it won't work.

Possible Updates???

Hi there,

I really like what you guys are doing, but one thing really frustrates me about the menu. Because of that fact that it automatically detects and lists all program exe's in the program folders it lists a number of exe's that should not be listed. Could it be possible to include into the menu's options the ability to 'permanently' remove unwanted exe's from the list? I think this kind of update is essential in order to tidy the whole thing up.

Folder Management

Submitted by georgecoffey5 on November 20, 2007 - 10:42am

Hi all,

Just wanna ask, is it possible to include a folder management system ie like the one in PStart. I have the PAM Mod R30 installed however I can't seem to get it working properly. I have the options of adding a category. Thats grand, but I can't seem to add another further folder. None of the programs won't move into the newly created folders. They will move up and down but not into the folder.

Any help would be much appreciated.
