WIkiQUsK - You do realize that PortableApps.com is free, that all our tools are open source and free, that the majority of the apps we package that are already portable aren't fully portable on their own and either leave bits behind or have some things break as you move around (some with quite major bits breaking or being left behind as we are discussing here), and PortableApps.com has operated at a loss since its founding, right? Don't let the facts get in the way of your rant, though. :)

"and PortableApps.com has operated at a loss since its founding, right? Don't let the facts get in the way of your rant, though."
That's your statement (and maybe the reality) but unless you show us your books... you could make whatever claims you want, it does not make it a fact.

Please move items unrelated to Firefox to the forums. Thanks.

Nice utility but I wish I never downloaded it because I keep checking the bags and wind up deleting them all the time!There are really a lot of shellbags-everytime you open a folder it creates a bag.HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam -DELETE THE SUBKEYS,bagmru and bags then folders will be reset.Helps if windows does not remember folder settings.

The link here is still to ConvertAll_Portable_0.4.2.paf.exe, not to ConvertAllPortable_0.5.1.paf.exe. Needs updating

ChemZ on 2011-04-18 16:03

Fixed and thanks.

The link has been updated to the website itself. For apps where the download link changes with each version, you're not supposed to direct link to the download (part of the PFC guidelines on the page: "Do not enter the direct URL to the file if the filename is version dependent, or the author forbids external links. For such cases, enter the URL to the download page instead.") Otherwise, you get the old version when the app has been updated but the PFC listing has not.
