KeePass v2 should be renamed from "Pro/Professional" to "2.x"

Submitted by lwc on September 14, 2018 - 3:16am

PortableApps has recently released its first ever .NET supported PortableApp, KeepAss v2. However, despite proven otherwise, it keeps calling it "KeePass Pro Password Safe Portable 2" or "KeePass Professional Password Safe Portable".

I'll quote from :

Submitted by FeMaster on June 14, 2018 - 11:06pm

Have been trying all day to update to the latest version of Stinger (, released on 6-13-18, and the download keeps failing. Tried to update using the updater in the PortableApps Platform, and via manual download of the installer. Both indicate that they fail to download.

Platform Updater states, "Download Error: File Not Found (404) on file..."
Standalone updater: "The installer was unable to download Stinger. ... (ERROR: SendRequest Error)

[Fixed] GPGShutdown does not shutdown dirmngr.exe

Submitted by CarlosCastaneda on May 24, 2018 - 8:39am

I installed Enigmail extension within Thunderbird. So, when I'm about to shutdown portableapps launcher a message is displayed that portableapps can't stop because dirmngr is still running.
When Thunderbird is shut down then GPGShutdown is called which properly terminates gpg-agent but leaves dirmngr running.

GPGShutdown should also terminate dirmgr. dirmngr can't even be terminated by means of gpgconf: .\\PortableApps\CommonFiles\GPG\bin\gpgconf.exe --kill dirmngr

Keepass 2 - Database, plugins and settings removed on update

Submitted by acicovic on May 20, 2018 - 9:22am


First of all, it's great to have KeePass 2 on PortableApps!

Today when updating to the latest KeePass version, my database, settings and plugins got lost.

I had placed settings and database in "PortableApps\KeePassProPortable\App\KeePassPro\" directory.
I had placed plugins in "PortableApps\KeePassProPortable\App\KeePassPro\Plugins\" directory.

Where should I place those files in order to avoid trouble in the future?


Integrate KeePassXC portable with Firefox Portable via the addon

Submitted by getco on April 4, 2018 - 11:05am

Has anyone tried integrating KeePassXC portable with Firefox Portable via the KeePassXC-Browser addon (

I think there might be a problem with the fact that FF is portable and KeePassXC can't intercept it somehow?

Any ideas?
