I'm testing a new style of Application Template for use with the Launcher and Installer. The current 2.4 release is just the barebones file structure but includes no example config files. This Dev Test is of a complete template with config files and a default launcher along with a stub EXE so you can be sure it works by default.

Introduction:Often, somebody will make a post asking for help. I wrote up a guide real quick for this poster, here. After a suggestion by r-andom, I re-posted as a forum topic. If you have a suggestion for the guide, post here. If you need help portablizing, make a new post in the Portable App Development Forum. So, without much more text, I loose the gorilla. . .

    The portable app development forum is for all development discussion related to portable apps. Feel free to ask questions on adapting the standard PortableApps NSIS-based launchers used with Portable Firefox, etc with other apps. Or with help working on any portable development project you wish. You'll find more portable apps developers here than anywhere else, so, for most questions, either someone will know outright or at least be able to point you in the right direction.

    How to address C:\Users\Public\Documents with PAL?

    I have a question about addressing C:\Users\Public\Documents with Portable Apps Launcher. I searched the PAL documentation and this forum as well as Google but did not find any solution.

    I want to move a folder in C:\Users\Public\Documents but what is the right syntax in then launcher.ini? I know how to do it generally but this is the first time I need to move to C:\Users\Public\Documents.

    Thanks and cheers
