FoxIt 9.4 for Security Updates

Submitted by sunk818 on March 7, 2019 - 5:55pm

I just download FoxItReader Portable. Says there is a 9.4 with security updates. I normally wouldn't care, but they specifically said security update... so I thought I should upgrade. I looked at 9.41 on FoxIt's site, but opening it up with 7Zip Portable doesn't show any extractable files.

Solution for serious problem requires GNUcash V3.3

Submitted by ajax on October 24, 2018 - 10:34pm

The current version (3.2) of GNUcash Portable has a serious problem that is supposed to be fixed in the currently available version (3.3). Reference

When can we expect the portable version to be updated? If not definite and soon I'm afraid I'll have to abandon the portable version.

[Fixed] Foxit 9.3 and Sumatra leave FileExts registry key that affects local associations

Submitted by vhugo2 on October 24, 2018 - 1:13pm

I have Portable Apps in a folder on my C: drive, Windows 7. Foxit 9.3 is my default PDF reader. When I launched Foxit from PortableApps, it created a registry entry in HKEY-Current user-Software-Microsoft-Windows-CurrentVersion-Explorer-FileExts-PDF and created a string PDF portable or somesuch. As a result some of my PDF files would only open with the PortableAppp version, and some with the permanent installed version.If I closed PortableApps, the files requiring it would not open.

[Fixed] The Guide Portable Opening automatically the last used file

I checked the option to open always the last opened file, which works fine if TheGuide uses the registry to save its settings. If TheGuide uses the portable INI file, than opening the last used file fails with an error message, that the file can't be found!

This error exists since a long time, but I "learned" to ignore it.

Moving to a new computer, TheGuide suddenly didn't use the existing INI file, switched back to the registry and the error wasn't raised anymore, but came back after switching back to the INI file.

[Fixed] Foxit Reader Portable does not store created Signature

Submitted by akari on July 8, 2018 - 7:01pm

Beware if you create a signature in Foxit Reader Portable (, the signature file will be temporary created and stored in the host computer until the app closes. Signature file path: %AppData%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\InstaSign\UserSign\

The entire %AppData%\Foxit Software folder will disappear after closing Foxit Reader Portable. Signature is not transfer to the location of the PortableApp and will not be available on re-opening the portable app.
