In ver. 0.3 Alpha 1, I get the following error when importing a CSV calendar file that I exported from Outlook.

Hi John,

Sorry to trouble you, but, can you specify EXACTLY which files to copy from Portable AbiWord 2.4.1 (the last version) to the newest one (2.4.2).Is it just the user profile file?

I also have copied the abiword plugins tool, is this correct?

Does anything else need moving to keep my stuff?



Sunbird not starting

Greetings all.
First of all thanks for making Portable Sunbird, I think it's an absolute gem of a piece of software. Now I can take my calendar everywhere in a format that's easy to use!

However, I have recently been having problems with Portable Sunbird. After launching the software the process starts, but no application windows are visible at all. I have tried leaving the process running for up to 15m but still nothing.

I am running Portable Sunbird and Portable Firefox from a 64Mb Intelligent Stick on a USB 2.0 port. The Firefox works fine every time, but Sunbird often refuses to open in this manner.

AbiWord: Messes with Documents folder?

Submitted by justin on January 3, 2006 - 7:59pm

When I try to save something in PortableAbiWord, and I click on "My Documents" on the left of the open/save box, it brings me to the My Documents folder that you included with the AbiWord package. Then, after that, when I try to go to "Justin's Documents" in "Files Stored In This Computer" in My Computer, it defaults to this new directory that is included in the PortableAbiWord package. I have to System Restore to fix the problem. It does however, let me get to my real documents when I go to Start>My Documents. Maybe to fix this, one could rename the included folder to something Windows won't do anything special with, such as "Documents". Or, one could just eliminate that folder altogether and just have people save to their USB sticks.

AbiWord - Wow!

I used PortableAbiWord this morning to type a paper at school. I must say I'm impressed. I like it a lot better than MS Word!

Thanks (for all of the wonderful work you're done) Mr. Haller!

Sorting in AbiWord

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on December 13, 2005 - 7:51pm

I like AbiWord quite a bit, but found that the lack of a "sort" feaure was irrating. I had to copy the text to another word processor, sort it, and copy it back. The feature request was first made in the late 1990s, but there only seems to be a slight few people who want it, so it doesn't become a big priority for them.

Sunbird: Virus Warning

I've Scanned Portable Apps Suite Light with an online antivirus, and found this:



I heard about Trojan/Virus Issue, but I'm a Little afraid, Aniway. Is it normal?
