Synchronizing PortableApps configurations across computers/usb memory sticks

Submitted by AlterMind on July 29, 2019 - 5:58pm

Hello !

Is there something (similar to FireFox's synchronisation account) like a central PA synchronisation feature, allowing to automatically keep the same installed apps on all the computers where I've installed PA or am using PA ? My problem is that those computers don't always have permanent Internet access (hence the memory stick) and/or are not fully under my control/exclusive usage, which makes me reluctant to use a cloud service and/or leave my cloud account credentials on these computers.

Thanks for your feedback and advice !

How to make it autorun?

Submitted by viajerozz on July 29, 2019 - 1:31pm

Can somebody please tell me how to make this Platform autostartup when I boot my USB WinPE stick? I have indicated to "Start after Windows boot" or whatever during the install process and I have tried editing the autorun.inf file six ways to Sunday and I just cant seem to get it to autostart upon booting is in a root directory named \Programs. Thanks for any info!

Custom header on menu page

Submitted by PaladinTech49 on July 25, 2019 - 11:30am

I run portable on several different sticks for several different reasons, depends on whether I am a network tech, hardware/software tech, or just general office drudge. I would like to put a header on the menu page so that I can tell which stick I have loaded without unloading and looking at the label on the underside of the stick.

How can I do this?

Thanks for the help. Love the products.

[Closed] Autorun.inf

Submitted by MunemWp on July 17, 2019 - 11:12pm

Hi there.

I accidentally delete the autorun.inf nested inside my "Documents" folder.

So I am left with a boring looking folder icon. I missed the old PortableApps custom icon.

Can someone provide me the contents of the .inf file for the PA custom Documents folder icon?

I want the original one to stay true to PA. Biggrin

As i understand a "short cut" to HELP
of a program was added.
But this is not enough since my main problem
is to find a program by its help or use.
General calcification is not enough.

What i did i wrote a Delphi program that shows ALL help
so i can choose a program by knowing what it dose !!!

I miss that kind of help in your software.

P.S if the developer wants my Delphi source i will be glade to share.

Hello, We use with success your "PortableApps" to allow our "Beta testers team" to "Install" ( or "Extract" ( our Beta Open Source Apps at: "".

The problem is that every time we try to extract the "7z file", we get an annoying dialog box dialog box indicating an identical double file "modern-header.bmp" in "$PLUGINSDIR"
