BPBible Portable not starting on Windows 7

Submitted by PAULIN on March 27, 2022 - 3:54pm


I have a problem with the portable version
"BPBiblePortable_0.5.3.1.paf.exe" under Windows 7.
The home screen goes up, then no program launch.

If I install the version: "bpbible-".
I have no problem with the PBBible software.

The problem comes from the portable version that does not work with
W7. Even if I change the compatibility of the exe with lower versions.


Gramps 5.1.5 - Avast antivirus detects threat in libgio-2.0-0.dll

Submitted by PBN on February 17, 2022 - 5:27pm

I use Gramps portable on Windows 11
New version (5.1.5) installed correctly.
But at first run Avast Antivirus software warns that libgio-2.0-0.dll contains threat "IDP:Generic".
I add an exception to Avast and it's ok.
Then Gramps runs correctly (but I didn't check many features).

I reported a bug to Gramps -> see
I add a screnshot there with the avast detail report.

Gramps Ubuntu Fonts MIssing

Submitted by alittlepronetopanic on January 28, 2022 - 3:34pm


Whenever I load up Gramps Portable on Ubuntu (Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS 64-bit) all I get is squares instead of any writing.

I prefer to use the portable version for ease, but when I install the normal, non portable version via their website, it works fine. I have tried searching Google, but as it seems to be central to Gramps Portable, I thought this was the best place to ask.

Does anyone else have this issue or know of anyway it can be fixed?

Are there FAQs for individual applications?

Is there a place we can submit a special installer note to this website?

In the Standalone installer for Gramps Portable (recently updated from 2015 Gramps version 3.4.9 to 2020 version 5.1.3), there are some configuration quirks for non-English users.

As described on your Languages page, the .ini setting for DefaultIfNotExists must be customized for the Gramps interface to show another language.

[Fixed] Stellarium resets some settings if run via the platform

Submitted by ANTICHRISTUS REX on September 28, 2020 - 6:09pm

Hello friends!

Some Stellarium's settings (left panel) are reseted if we run Stellarium from the PA Platform. Nothing happens if we run the executable from its containing folder, or from the taskbar's shortcut.

The most flagrant setting is the language, I set it to French and it went to English every time I run it (via the platform). I've also noticed the plugins' tab, checked and unchecked plugins are reseted to their defaults.
The "View's settings" don't seem affected.

Many OpenSource applications are actually portable. You just need to copy their installation to your USB key and take care to SUBST you USB drive letter to some fixed letter e.g. Z:/ before launching the Portable Apps shell. If some trouble remains most of the time you can cope with them adding the USB key the missing dlls and launching the app thru a .bat command file that takes care to assign the DOS variables TMP HOME PATH etc to some folder under Z:/
