Robert Kausch:

Hi, a user of fre:ac Portable reported a bug to me.

Now that fre:ac 1.0.32 is released, fre:ac Portable 1.0.31 offers to update to it. The PortableApps wrapper, however, interferes with the update process which results in an error message.

Please remove the eUpdate.dll file from the PortableApps version of fre:ac. This will disable the updater only - fre:ac will continue to work normally without that DLL.


CDex 1.99 update failing due to invalid copy?

Submitted by Soundvessel on February 1, 2018 - 12:34pm

I am running the most current non-beta version of PortableApps on two fully up to date Windows 10 machines. I have also tried disabling live protection with my Nod32 anti-virus. Tried this on two separate machines on different networks and internet connections. Tried both yesterday and today.

PortableApps indicated that an update 1.99 was available for CDex but the update fails with the following message:

VLC Portable: Playing BluRay (AACS Plugin)?

Submitted by VLC_Fan on December 28, 2017 - 3:17pm

Hi all,

Has anybody managed to get VLC Portable play encrypted BluRays?

There is a solution available for VLC Vanilla at but the people I have talked to so far have not been able to make VLC Portable recognize these two files (plugin + config-file) correctly.

Thank you in advance for your responses!


CDex 1.96 update error

Submitted by whmeeske on December 22, 2017 - 6:26am

Hi, my PortableApps platform shows CDex 1.96 is available to update, but if I will update it seems to start downloading, but within less then a second I get the error "Download Error: Access Forbidden (403) on file"

If I remember well, I also got the same type of error when I tried to install CDex within portable apps a few months ago.

What can I do to get this update installed?

With the Audacity Portable 2.2.1 release, we have also released a plugin installer for LAME 3.100.
However, Audacity does not support this version of the LAME library yet. The latest supported version is 3.99.5.

See these images for details on the message provided by Audacity, along with where this message comes from:
