Utility Apps Support


Submitted by Tartempion on January 23, 2018 - 12:03pm

thank you for the adding of CCleaner in PortableApps.
I meet a little problem. The functions [add "run CCleaner" option to Recycle Bin context menu] and [add "open CCleaner..." option to Recycle Bin context menu] don't seem to work properly. Everytime I launch CCleaner with a right mouse button click on the Recycle Bin, a new [ccleaner.ini] file is created with default settings. And it's very, very annoying.

Best regards

No more x86 / i586 Java builds from Oracle

Submitted by Anton_D on January 21, 2018 - 6:51pm

Oracle has officially dropped x86 / I586 builds for all platforms back in September 2017 with release of version 9. The version 8 is officially maintained for one year, so there would be no more updates for it after September 2018. Till then everybody should jump to the newest version, which would be 11 at the time. They also adopted rapid release cycle, with a new version every 6 month and probably some LTS version. But the latest isn’t important for this topic.

Wise apps uninstalled by Windows Defender

Submitted by Herb_ on November 16, 2017 - 3:48am

All of a sudden since latest Windows 10 update The RegistryCleaner and the DiskCleaner were uninstalled by Defender without chance to provide an exception to them.
Had to disable Defender entirely to reinstall and run these both apps on 4 boxes.

I know from Malwarebytes that it tried to quarantine these apps too, but at least one could easily give an exception to them.

Create ISO file from external HD

Submitted by Floyd Winston on October 30, 2017 - 7:07pm

I have an external HD (bootable windows IDE) that I need to duplicate. I could order a drive duplicator but I only need a couple copies and it doesnt justify the expense. I was thinking I could burn an ISO file from the source, and burn the ISO on a blank drive.

On a mac, I could use the DD command
Ubuntu has a similar command tool built in
Windows has some 3rd party utilities, but I am not allowed/blocked from installing software on this PC

I made a bootable flash drive (Ubuntu) but I am locked out of the BIOS to change boot order and boot from a flash.

[Fixed] VeraCrypt Portable 1.21 - Translations missing!?!

Submitted by deti on October 19, 2017 - 3:34pm

after the update to VeraCrypt Portable 1.21 the translations are missing. Only English is available under Settings => Languages ....
In the folder \PortableApps\VeraCryptPortable\App\VeraCrypt the old language files are stored (from 2016). Why are the new files not installed with the update like it does when I install the desktop version? And how can I fix this?

Hi Having a few issues with DSynchronize as its stop loading after installing the latest version of the update. i have contacted the application author who has informed me that the portable app version is a mod mod version is this correct?
The author has also suggested that the version on the page may not be the true version number released how can this be? any advice would be helpful.
