Inkscape startup issue

Submitted by petruscaleus on July 20, 2022 - 11:55am

Hi there,

I have a problem running Inkscape (1.2.1) in portable mode.
(I had no problems with 0.9..2? last year; uninstalled it, and reinstalled the current version today via the platform's integrated app manager).

1. When I run it from the menu / via "InkscapePortable.exe", the launcher splash shows up, but not Inkscape itself (despite being present in the taskmanager / details).

2. When I run the launcher as administrator, it works as expected - with the fact, that I have to fill the annoying UAC popup with an even more annoyingly long admin user / password.

[Fixed] IrfanView Portable 4.60 Rev 2 Can't Use 32-bit Plugins

Submitted by OsakaWebbie on July 14, 2022 - 1:30am

I have always run IrfanView 32-bit only, and it has been fine. But recently PortableApps said it had an update for "IrfanView 4.60 Rev 2". I assumed that was just the same IrfanView, so I allowed it to proceed. But it didn't update the 32-bit version that I had been using, but instead added a 64-bit version alongside it (separate IrfanView64 folder under PortableApps/IrfanViewPortable/App) and changed PortableApps/IrfanViewPortable/IrfanViewPortable.exe to point to that version.

I have a couple of suggestions for fixes for the "IrfanView Portable 4.60 Rev 2".
1. Non-English help files should be in the "Help" directory and not in the root directory (only the original English help file remains here). (The same is done in the developer's original language archives).
2. For the 64-bit version, the GhostScript library is incorrectly selected: gsdll32.dll is selected for any system, but it should be gsdll64.dll for 64-bit system.

As reported by Sprinterdriver in the 1.2 release announcement:

If a file that contains text elements are opened in Inkscape 1.2 (portableapps) - then it always pop up a message that list the fonts used.

Font 'Bahnschrift' substituted with 'Bahnschrift'
Font 'Franklin Gothic Demi' substituted with 'Franklin Gothic Demi'
Font 'Gill Sans Nova' substituted with 'Gill Sans Nova'
