Monitoring autorun.inf

Submitted by PortableGood on September 4, 2020 - 10:10pm

The latest version of PAP includes an option to monitor for autorun.inf changes (defaulted to enabled).

What are the advantages/disadvantages of enabling or disabling this?

On the surface, it seems like if you don't manually edit autorun.inf while you have PAP running, there is no reason not to disable this functionality, but maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture.

After Win10 Update most PortableApps Programs started with error 0xc000007b
Firefox, Thunderbird didn't but
Irfanview, Lightscreen, and many other do error 0xc000007b
At moment my fix ist to start directly from Appdir:
U:\PortableApps\LightscreenPortable\App\Lightscreen\lightscreen.exe works
U:\PortableApps\LightscreenPortable\LightscreenPortable.exe dont start tc. error 0xc000007b
Is there any Hotfix, known Grouppolicy or Startpolicy to start USB based Programs better result for PA?

thanks for serve me

Hello. All the software is updated. Win 10 1809 x64. Very fast computer Smile

Today I tried the platform for the first time. (Long time user of the portable apps) I use start.exe. I downloaded a couple of apps (Foxit PDF reader, Qbittorrent) as well as copied some existing apps to the platform dir (Thunderbird, etc). All of them are in the list. I launch them from the platform from SSD. I toggled "close apps when the platform is closed".
