Truncated Portable Apps Menu

Submitted by mike.jacobson on July 7, 2019 - 12:59am

I'll try and keep this short and concise. My portabe apps menu is only half the length it should be. Each time I start it it appears the same. The only way I can workaround it is to go to options>theme> click any theme and then the menu appears the correct length. This is only temporary and next time I start PA platform the issue persists.

Platform will not load

I checked the forum but didn't see my issue. I have portable apps platform installed on a xSDXC card that I insert into an USB adapter. Over the last week, the Portable Apps platform will not load. I terminated the instance of PA in the Taskmgr and ran the platform installer. Once it was finished I tried it and nothing, any ideas? Thx

Need some "<machine>-agnostic" run mode (or some configs profiles feature)

Submitted by SappFi on June 3, 2019 - 10:43am

Anyway quick way to force portableapps to disregard any -stored apps's config files/settings¸ se we can run any of our bundled apps on a any new machines without having those saved config conflicting with the new environment ?
I've never found neither a "Settings Profile" features, nor any per-Apps's "Reset Stored Config" or " ...

Sorry for the horrible english.

Silently cleanup unneded data and restart improperly closed apps (because of PC restart w/o closing apps)

Submitted by DJ_ZX on May 17, 2019 - 9:54am

Here are two issues (I see that part with power loss issue is under tracking but have an extra opinion - feel free to merge with other similar thread if exists)
1 - dialog that states "App did not close properly last time" is not really actionable. Mean you cannot cancel cleanup, this is just informational. So proper behavior should be - cleanup data, do not show the dialog. Probably Platform should check for such "dirty" data and clean it up on start.

Add checkboxes to always silently update apps and to automatically close PA updater if updated in UI mode

Submitted by DJ_ZX on May 17, 2019 - 8:09am

Was not able to find request so writing it down here, merge it if needed.
One of the most annoying things in Platform - is too many unneeded confirmations.
For ex. I need to click all the time to update all apps (never skipping updates) and then check that they are updated and specifically click "Finish" on an empty screen.
Will be great to introduce completely silent updates or at least remove unneeded confirmation to close the updater.
Solution could be in one or 2 checkboxes.

How to know if a portableapp is installed

Submitted by giancarlo19633 on May 12, 2019 - 4:55pm

Respectable PortableApps Forum I want to make a question:

After having installed all the apps I have noticed that one of the app that I had thought that was installed was missing. Now my question is : Is there a way to know if all the apps are installed or must I try manually every app? In practice I want to know if all the apps of this suite are installed without trying every app manually to see if it is present..

Sorry to have disturbed, thanking all that want to answer to this post, I salute all the Community.
