Previous versions of PDF-Xchange Editor?

Submitted by WirlyWirly on October 4, 2023 - 7:08pm


I'm trying to downgrade my version of PDF-XChange Editor, however I don't see a node for it on SourceForge;

GnuCash 5.4 not quitting cleanly

Submitted by paulvp on September 29, 2023 - 5:44pm

I've noticed since the update to v5.4 that GnuCash does not quit cleanly. That is, when I close the program there are processes that continue to run. This prevents the PortableApps platform from closing because I have 'Close Apps On Platform Exit' selected in the options. It also causes a problem in OneDrive which reports a 'sync error' on a GnuCash log file. I assume this is because the log file is being seen as still in use by one of the running processes.

[Fixed] Foxit Reader Missing sharing via email

Submitted by PortableFox on September 22, 2023 - 2:18am

I installed the latest version of Foxit Reader (2023.2.0.21408). The Email option is missing in the Share menu, when in previous versions it was possible to share a document using an email client.
I use this option quite regularly, is it possible to install/set the plugin so that it can be used again?

Malwarebytes reports calibre portable as Ransomware

Submitted by bigpallooka on September 11, 2023 - 10:48pm

Thanks to the excellent advice from John T. Haller I was able to transfer my large calibre portable library into the portableapps version of calibre portable. Unfortunately, Malwarebytes is convinced that calibrePortable.exe is ransomware (Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic) and keeps quarantining it. Can anyone explain this behaviour before I make an exception in Malwarebytes?

Moving from Calibre Portable to Calibre Portable

Submitted by bigpallooka on August 21, 2023 - 9:33pm

I have been using calibre portable for many years and have successfully moved from drive to drive and computer to computer. I was wondering what the difference is between the Official Portable release and the release. I want to move my libraries to my drive and was wondering if it is possible to just copy the data to that folder or will I break it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

[Fixed] GnuCash Portable - Printing Errors

Submitted by portot on August 8, 2023 - 1:31pm

GnuCash 5.3 for Windows from on Windows 10 allows report and check printing. GnuCash Portable 5.3 for Windows on Windows 10 fails to print reports and checks on the same machine. GnuCash Portable 5.3 generates no visible message/error when attempting to print a check and nothing is listed in the Windows 10 printer management interface. When attempting to print a report with GnuCash Portable 5.3 I see a dialog with the GnuCash Portable 5.3 icon in the upper left corner and the message states "Error from StartDoc".

I'm kind of overwhelmed.
