Discuss portable app development and modification of existing apps.
If I try to create a launcher for a folder like C:\Users\[user]\Documents\test this\PortableApps\something (note test this) then it fails (complaining about the name= of the program and if I also remove spaces from the name= then it complains about the folder itself).
But if all I do is create a symlink to it from c:\something and run the launcher on it then it works perfectly.
Could you make sure it supports long name folders with spaces?
Hi John, since i have noticed that the release of updates is very slow, wouldn't it be better to have users download via the Platform the latest versions directly from the official websites replacing only the folders containing the software and leaving the Launchers intact? What do you think?
how can i use older versions of chrome portable
i hope somone can answer me
The last page of the updater has a very very little font size. This is not a functional problem - I can click finish and it went away but it isn't looking nice.
Hi folks, I'm a long term user and I saw how the platform grow and became more and more usefull and fun.
I have a request for the new version, A checkbox in options that enables the window of update apps to not be loaded when the app starts, but it is loaded when close the app.
I need an open source on-screen keyboard I could change, so I tried the portable one, it worked well for my basic needs, so I got the source code from the app page, but turns out that it's very different from the binary distributed on the page.
Where can I find the current source code?
I am currently developing an application that uses a .hidden directory to store its settings, etc.
When I add this folder to AppNamePortable.ini, it creates the original .hiddenAppNameDirectory that I'm attempting to copy, and also another directory beside it called .CopyOfhiddenAppNameDirectoryCreatedByPortableApps or something similar.
I have tried adding the settings.json file only to no avail.
Is there a way to rewrite a line in the settings.json on startup, or is there some other way I am missing here? Am I out of options?
Normally, what I would do when I get an update for an portable application is that I'd run 7-Zip, go to the app directory and create a backup zip of said portable application before I update the app. This has saved me multiple times whenever I need to downgrade the app for whatever reason.
I'd like for my process to be automated though, built into the Updater app, maybe as an opt-in option in the Advanced tab.
