I have an example... I've been working with GnuCash since a couple of months; before that I used to keep my personal accounting using Excel, but after two years I found some drawbacks. If you want the example just write me. caenleve@yahoo.com

There was a Crashpad issue causing the APPDATA directory to be left behind that was fixed in today's releases. I can't reproduce the others on any OS. Please post a complete bug report in the support forum here: http://portableapps.com/forums/support/other_apps We have hundreds of apps and bug reports as comments on another site often won't be seen and won't wind up being addressed, at least not in a timely manner.

@JohnTHaller: Thank you for the new release. Regarding the registry entries that are left behind I will post in the forum.

@CornHolio the Gringo agreed PDF-XChange is what I use for anything PDF and have been using for many years. Although I don't mean to take anything away from Foxit cause its good software in its own right. Even thought its been a few years since anyone has posted this is still an important download for anyone looking for a good PDF Reader that's Portable :)

I have tried tenths of versions of it since 2007 and it never worked fine. Always full of bugs and mainly crashes. Few years ago I found Sumatra, which became my "notepad" or "mspaint" for PDF files. For edition, any other is fine.
It is marked as "potentially unwanted programs" (search)

CherryTree produces great formatted HTML export. It's fully customisable after-the-fact, with the included styles.css. Embedded files, images and the HTML files are stored separately from each other.

Nice note taking app, but crashes a lot and doesn't import markdown files correctly.

Philiweb on 2022-06-04 03:47

A very good software that I use on a daily basis. But I stayed on the latest "pygtk2" version (0.39) because I find it much more responsive on large files. :-|

FYI I logged in to post this

The "p" in the rufus executible name makes it portable; otherwise, it writes to reg.
For example:

rufus-2.12p.exe is portable
rufus-2.12.exe is not.

Was driving me insane finding reg keys.. :)

Great program. Small footprint and quick. Good tool for formatting USB drives and for making USB drives bootable with ISOs or DOS.
