I'm testing a new style of Application Template for use with the Launcher and Installer. The old 2.4 release was just the barebones file structure but includes no example config files. This 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.

    Install request - create TempForPortableApps

    Submitted by FKlusmann on September 16, 2021 - 12:02pm

    I request, or suggest, that the creation of (root):\TempForPortableApps be done as part of the initial installation.
    I just did a complete new download and install of PoratableApps onto a new USB memory stick. Then I asked PoratableApps to download and install LibreOffice. I checked the Paths and saw that Temporary files still pointed to drive "C:". Of course, manually creating the directory (or folder) fixed the problem.
    How many new users would know how to do this?
    Thank you!

    I tried to log out by clicking the "Log Out" in the page header. I am redirected to ""
    That page says Access denied - You are not authorized to access this page.

    The Back button shows that I am still online. I'd give a screenshot if I see how to upload it.
