Re: TPFC Database

Sorry bout that, missed webfork's edit on post #18 which would have hopefully removed at least some of my confusion (maybe not).

If Andrew is seeing blank download links on Function Generator Lite entry, maybe something is up on my end?

Re: TPFC Database

Here is the list I was looking at----> https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?q=%5B%23%5D&m= The Function Generator Lite download links point to "CloseAll_3.1-setup.exe" from "web.archive.org". CloseAll entry is just above this entry. A few entries down at "PDF Page Rotator" the website and down...

Re: TPFC Database

Some of the links for the private entries are messed up. Function Generator Lite had download links pointing to CloseAll now but was to Wizfil or such. Several entries are listed for DuckDuckGo with the homepage and download links pointing to DuckDuckGO and the screenshots are for other programs.

Re: Do not use Microsoft Store

One sad part of this is that many of the users never even know they are paying for something they could get for free or using a product that has been copycatted (sp?). I often try different software just to check them out "play" and see what features are present, preferably open source and/or portab...

Re: Bootable Free Space Wiper App?

You could also boot to a Windows based boot media such as winbuilder/PE/XPE - https://www.tenforums.com/software-apps/117664-win10xpe-build-your-own-rescue-media.html and use the included or portable app/program from that. Use caution when using DBaN and similar utilities as you could easily wipe al...

Re: 7-Zip plugins

Have you tried any of these and if so, do any affect portability? I have a lot of old Outlook/Outlook Express backup files that this may be very useful for as I wouldn't have to keep the older systems around. I could still keep using some of the older systems for DOS/Win3.1-9x gaming instead of usin...

Re: VideoCacheViewer can't find Chrome files

As the attachment shows an error/message from "Windows Media Player" I would say you don't have the correct codecs installed as it says. Is WMP your default media player? Are you getting a list of files in "VideoCacheViewer" at all that you are clicking on or is WMP opening the files automatically? ...

Re: Minetest: Free minecraft alternative

I unplugged my network cable and started the game. It does ask for access to the network but the game started before I even clicked on anything. I am running in single player mode.

Since you can join a networked game or host a server, I'd expect this behavior.

Wouldn't I?

Re: Minetest: Free minecraft alternative

5.0.1 was released March 31, 2019.

I downloaded 5.0.0 a couple weeks ago and it hasn't crashed yet so stability looks a lot better. I'm gonna try copying the saved world/game to the newer update to see if there is any issue.
