PortableAppsMenu.exe generates error

Submitted by tdebie on February 15, 2007 - 5:35am

Today I started to use this cool set of lightweight portable applications.

Howeverr, when I tried to start the 'StartPortableApps.exe' (located in the root of my USB flash drive, I got the following application error 'Exception EOSError in module PortableAppsMenu.exe at 0000DA65. System error. Code: 87. The parameter is incorrect.'

Is there anybody experiencing the same problems and do any of you what may cause this and how it can be solved?

FYI: all the applications work if I run them via their own program folder (e.g. FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe).

Installing with Existing Applications

I was looking at installing PAM, but already have some apps installed (Firefox and XAMPP Lite from here - and RoboForm). How do I install PAM and bring in my current apps without damaging them?

Maybe I didn't get enough sleep last night, but I could not find this info on the support page nor by searching or browsing this forum.


I should add - I am looking at installing the Base Edition - as there are just a couple more apps I would want to install.
