Portable note taking app recommendation

Submitted by EOBeav on February 28, 2017 - 9:26am

Hi there, I'm looking for a recommendation of one of the note taking/stickie apps. I need something that will support multiple notes organized in a hierarchical format with the ability to back up information periodically via ftp, or with some other cloud option. The app should also be well documented with at least some moderately active community support. I've started using PNotes, but for some reason the notes revert back to the older, previously saved versions every time I sync via FTP. Their forums are not accessible at the moment for new members.

KchmViewer: upstream 7.7 is faulty, but shows an error message. Portable 7.7 doesn't.

I'll report to upstream that 7.7 is faulty. But upstream faulty version displays a clear error window. The portable version just disappears.

The details are:
On XP SP3:
KchmViewerPortable 7.7 displays its small logo window and disappears.
7.5 seem to run fine.
7.7 occupies 50% more disk space, compared to 7.5. As if 7.7 has lots of new features, or something.

[Fixed] Sigil 0.9.7 requires kb2999226

Submitted by Zee_Pants on November 11, 2016 - 11:54pm

So I just downloaded Sigil 0.9.7 and upon running it, nothing happens (visually). Bypassing the launcher and running sigil.exe directly I get an error message about a missing dll.

By installing KB2999226 ( ) : Windows Universal CRT, and then running the launcher, all is fine.

Might want to mention the dependency or include the required RTs locally

[Fixed] Foxit Reader leaving a folder in AppData

Submitted by Emka on November 2, 2016 - 1:09pm

Supposedly after updating to Foxit Reader Portable from the previous version (not via the platforms auto updater but manually), I noticed a folder called Foxit Software in AppData/Roaming on Win10x64. I don't know what was inside the folder, if anything, sorry. Restarting Foxit and closing it did not delete it, and it kept reappearing after deleting it and starting Foxit. When I had deleted Foxit and did a fresh install of the current version, the issue did not come up again.

Sumatra PDF Reader 3 portable application is fully justified for the systems window. It could be used as for many other purposes, such as PDF editing, and save, print, over 69 translations and more. If you are satisfied with all of its functions, then you have to adopt this system tool for personal and official purposes as you want.
