Notepad++ ini file missing per launcher but file exists

Submitted by mtabor on November 7, 2022 - 10:41pm

Trying to run Notepad++ Portable, standalone. Installed fine, but getting error message whenever I try to run the app:

\App\AppInfo\Launcher\Notepad++Portable.ini is missing [Launch]:ProgramExececutable - what am I to launch?

The Notepad++Portable.ini file exists, and is visible in Windows Explorer.

I installed the app on a network share, mapped to a drive.

Other similar errors I found on the forum:

Need Help With A Portable App I am trying to build

Hi, I have a couple of SWF Files which runs through a Shell.exe. I wanted to make a single executable portable bundling all the swf files along with the Shell.exe and on executing the portableapp I wanted the Shell.exe to be executed. Is this something that could be technically achieved with Portable Apps. I just need a few pointers in the right direction.

Sab. Launcher ignores the 32-bit executable when ProgramExecutable64 is specified but the file didn't exists.

In 64 bit operating system, for the portable app with both 32 bit and 64 bit exe, e.g. 7-Zip Portable, If you delete the 7-Zip64\7zFM.exe (the 64 bit executable file of 7-Zip), You will receive a ERROR message "7-Zip Portable cannot be started. You may wish to re-install to fix this issue.

"XAMPP isn't in Format, but it easily integrates with the Menu by using the XAMPP Launcher (linked above) and installing XAMPP in the root directory of your portable device or the appropriate subdirectory within XAMPP launcher. You can open the zip/7z archive of the portable version with 7-Zip Portable."

[Fixed] Notepad++ doesn't move all configs from and to /Data/Config properly

Since Notepad++ Portable 8.1.1 up to the latest version (8.1 is the last correctly working version), on a Windows 10 x64 system, the program doesn't actually use any .xml files from /Data/Config besides session.xml. On fresh install and first run,
