Re: PDF-XChange Viewer

I wanted to try the OCR addon for PDF-Xchange Viewer from portableapps.com since the one from the official website doesn't seem to work properly (or maybe something has changed that needs to be documented). However, the link for the OCR addon on portableapps.com is dead. @JohnTHaller - Can you fix ...

Re: SeaMonkey Portable

The new version is being worked on now. I was planning on releasing it today but I'm verifying whether it is affected by the new taskbar pinning protocol and update checking techniques in Firefox/Thunderbird first: https://portableapps.com/node/63225

Re: Running two instances of Portable Apps at the same time

You can run two separate copies of the platform without issue. You can't run two instances of the same menu (that would be a bit pointless anyway). The only issue you'll encounter is when upgrading the platform as all copies must be closed during an upgrade, though this will be changing in an upcomi...

Re: PreLoad Portable Office

If you'd like to preload LibreOffice Portable, you can run LibreOfficePortable.exe --quickstart on the command line. Run that as Windows starts or similar. Note that this will keep it running in the background, so you won't be able to eject any drives with it on it until you start and then exit Libr...

I disagree about Off By One. It's a browser that doesn't even render Java and JS, which are the major causes of web exploits.

I don't have an issue with the rest of them.
Another big one is image and video rendering libraries. So, an out of date browser is vulnerable even without JS.

Re: Avidemux

Pro Tip: In addition to Avidemux Portable from PortableApps.com being 32-bit plus 64-bit dual mode, it contains unaltered copies of both versions within. The only changes we may make is to add any VC++ DLLs required to run on a clean older version of Windows. You can take the contents of AvidemuxPor...
