Chrome acting up after Win10 update

Hello everyone,

just ran into a "little snag"- probably just something stupid.

I have 4 separate portable Chrome profiles, in different folders, for different purposes (keeping the amount of add ons to a minimum). They have been working for years side by side. I just updated them once a year to he latest version.

After the latest Win10 upgrade they stopped working. When I try to open any of them, nothing at all happens.

utorrent portable

Submitted by spchtr on July 15, 2018 - 1:28am

After trying to upgrade to the latest utorrent portable, it seems to me it is no longer portable. It is downloading a beta version which has autoupdate turned on by default and the option to disable updates is greyed out so you cannot shut off the updates. It ends up installing the updated version to c:\users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\utorrent\utorrent.exe . This, in my mind makes it no longer portable.

I need to rename chrome.exe so apps like chevolume see it as different app

Is there anyway to rename the chrome.exe so the portable.exe finds it still
so the instance of the name is different to the internal chrome or
another portable chrome versions on another partitions.
some ini file or commandline -binname=usbchrome

as need chevolume to separate them so I can redirect the volumes to virtual sound drivers


Google Chrome Portable 67.0.3396.99 crashes Firefox and stays in memory after close

This is being typed on PortableApps Firefox 60.02.
Open Chrome with 1 tab and it crashes Firefox or Waterfox. First it crashes the Stylish, Ublock Origin and a few more extensions then Firefox. Before the update everything co-existed without probems.
Looking in Process Explorer I can see GoogleChromePortable.exe and 1 subprocess with 5 below it.
Close Chrome and only the last spawned process closes.
The main program and 4 below it are still running.
I don't update every time so I'm not sure what version I updated from.

Not used where do we go ? / Google Chrome

Submitted by DADSGETNDOWN on June 18, 2018 - 2:05am

If this forum isn't used where do we go for things that have no forum/support? Google Chrome for instance is not a choice in App Specific or Internet forums. My Original reason to post, Google Chrome right now version 67.0.3396.87 says it is 42MB Download 154MB Installed, but I download using the PA Banner which takes me to Sourceforge, after downloading it says it is 1.6MB, why is that ? I expect the full 42MB.
