BTW, I'm now using demon.devin's wrapper myself. I got yet another AV false positive with crazy-max's wrapper, and at this point I'm fed up of them.

I've recently just got in touch with Crazy-Max who informed me that the false-positive's are a result of the programming language he uses which is Go. He goes on to say..
the only issue i've found with Golang is the heuristic / false positive detection by antivirus (for 32bit artifacts) but it will be solved in the next release of Go
So don't write off Crazy-Max's builds just yet. His take on portable programs was so interesting to me that I had to invite him to our little programming community. His little framework for portable applications is geared towards software built using Electron which has been my little focus recently too. 8)

So there are 3 files in the download page marked as portable. I've got Avast quarantining the discord-portable-ia32-0.0.299-17-setup.exe file and there's a VirusTotal analysis of discord-portable-ia32.exe but that doesn't seem to function on my Win7x32 machine.

I'm asking partly for myself but also to know which one of these we're suggesting people use in the entry.

Also just checked out the demon.devin version and it looks like the program is actually attached to a separate website:

Specifically http://softables.tk, which has the title PortableAppz across the top:
  • Image
Is the same PortableAppz as portableappz. blogspot .com (link intentionally broken)?

EDIT: Did a bit more digging and it doesn't look like they're connected but it would have been good to know earlier on that this was part of an obviously bigger project.

That's my dedicated website for all my projects online, but mainly it is a place I house my portable applications.

I am in no way affiliated with Bernat and/or PortableAppz.blogspot.com but I do link to his page at the bottom of my website.

The reason I have "PortableAppz" as the top image is because my domain was originally http://portableappz.zxq.net 10 years ago but the hosting service for that website just suddenly disappeared along with all my work (I was so mad but I guess that's the risk you take when using a free shared hosting service ..lol.). I then moved to http://portableappz.x10.mx/ (which still works but points you to Softables.tk/).

EDIT: Thanks to a user who messaged me on Discord, the username below has been fixed.

So I'm testing out Discord now. I can be reached there (as "webfork#5622") if anyone wants to chat for some reason. I'm hanging out in the ShareX channel.

I should note that this is not a kid-friendly program, but I have to admit despite a terrible color scheme and way too many doo-dads it seems to be coming in as a replacement for IRC.

I retested and it's working fine. I'm recommending the "setup" file (entry edited).
