Update Problem with Opera Portable

Submitted by GDVX_111 on May 14, 2022 - 7:38pm

I'm not sure exactly what precipitated this, but after years of successful usage I recently ran into a hard to resolve problem updating your portable Opera, in which it kept going in circles saying that it was updating, but always remained on the existing version. (I run my portable apps as individual standalones, rather than making use of your Launcher platform.) I tried all of the listed updating methods, up to and including attempts at installing the new version over top of the prior one, but no dice.

How to make ChromePortable NOT READ/follow policies/REG items on the host box

Submitted by Asteriz on April 7, 2022 - 8:08am

The problem is that on a particular host box HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome /v RestoreOnStartup is set to 0x04 which prevents restoration of previously open windows/tabs and that makes ChromePortable completely useless.

I tend to have like a dozen windows 5-6 tabs each and the very reason for taking the latest ChromePortable was to avoid that policy force fed to that box for the locally installed Chrome.

0x04 is "Open a specific page or set of pages" in On startup settings
0x01 is "Continue where you left off" == restore tabs and windows

Chrome - How to change profile path

Submitted by Niccolo on March 21, 2022 - 12:42pm


i see in other topics that chromeportable already offers ways to change default profile path by copying the file "GoogleChromePortable.ini" from the path "other\data" to the same path where is GoogleChromePortable.exe.

If i wrote inside the .ini file "ProfileDirectory=%appdata%" it automatically creates a folder where is googlechromeportable.exe called %appdata% and inside create the profile.
