FoxIt Reader 10.1.1 Losing Settings

Submitted by NotMine on February 26, 2021 - 12:00am

Windows 7 x64, fully updated; FoxIt Reader Portable Apps version

I have encountered multiple occurances of FoxIt Reader 10.1.1 losing it's settings (my choices in it's "Preferences" menu and my choice of "skin" from it's menu). It is reverting to ALL of it's default settings. That means the application will "call home" to FoxIt with information for it's "User Experience Improvement" feature (also enabled by default, and did you know it did this?) That also means the default "Start Page" with it's advertising is enabled; BAH! Humbug!

Foxit Reader not responding

Submitted by alman2001 on May 26, 2020 - 3:33pm


I must say thank you so much for this awesome service I have made a donation and this is one of the best services out there as I never knew about portable apps before. I love the range of apps & that i don't have to continually update apps & i have far less issues since i went portable with my browsers.

Just today I had issues with Foxit reader not responding. I think there was an update at some point i can't recall. have a screenshot of error message:

GNUcash requires administrator rights (sometimes)

Submitted by paulvp on May 17, 2020 - 2:59pm

I'm experiencing a strange problem with GNUcash as follows:
When trying to launch the program from the portableapps menu via the usual single left click, nothing happens. I then found that using a right click and 'Run as administrator' launches the program just fine. However, sometimes, a single left click will still work.
So far, I haven't been able to establish a pattern of when the left click does/doesn't work. It seems to be random.
