Re: LibreOffice Portable now runs from paths with spaces

Another example: JohnTHaller told us that all PA sources of PortableApps.com are easy to find. I could say that it "seems" OpenOffice.org source code is not available (the truth is, from this page, http://portableapps.com/apps/office/openoffice_portable#download_details sourcecode link points to ht...

Re: LibreOffice Portable now runs from paths with spaces

Also, since you're reading this, please remedy WinPenPack's GPL violation by hosting the source code for every version of LibreOffice (you're not redistributing sources for any of them at present) and every version of the other GPL apps you distribute as well as releasing the source code for Java G...

Re: Update to popularity score algorithm

Here are the popularity scores as of today (minus old scores): Typhoon 2001 => 13701 VirtuaWin => 12773 TrueCrypt => 11353 Opera => 11174 Quite surprising. :o Many of these applications aren't well known. What surprises me is that Opera is above Firefox. Does this mean people are switching from Fir...

Re: Windows 8 Latest News

Seems mounting of ISO files and VHD's will be standard within Windows 8. Though I think it's a little late since CDROM's will soon be a thing of the past. (Don't quote me on that though.) Ref: http://www.ghacks.net/2011/08/30/finally-windows-8-supports-native-iso-mounting/ You can make ISOs of Blu-...

Re: Windows 8 Latest News

I hope there is an option to use menus instead of that damn ribbon. It might be OK for touch screens, but do we really need a massive button and icon for every single command? ... i don't understand why most people want the 'up' button...in windows xp, all i used was the up button.nothing else. but ...

I believe it was a phpBB exploit that enabled the download, so I imagine that aside from upgrading, there isn't much the mods can do.

Re: User database posted online

I disabled blocking on my browser, so now I can see the post, but both the pastebin links are dead.

It doesn't sound like it was that bad though, all our passwords are hashed, right?

Re: Switching X-Inkscape to Inkspace Portable hosted by Inks

Let me explain more in details. It's true that Inkscape Portable maintains the recent files list, and is also true that it updates the drive letter within the settings files. But, moving Portable Inkscape folder anywhere (in the same disk/stick or into another disk), your affirmation is not complet...

Re: Switching X-Inkscape to Inkspace Portable hosted by Inks

Danix : as such, I encourage you to contact the developers (as with the RedNotebook epsisode ) and ask them if they would be willing to support your software as well as the PA version they're linking to. Unlike Rednotebook, Inkscape isn't linking to an Inkscape Portable package that PortableApps.co...

Re: Update to popularity score algorithm

I don't know about this change. What if there is a app that is extremely popular, but has been around for a while, everyone would have voted for it, but all those votes would be older than 30 days. You would need new people constantly voting for apps. Are there that many new members voting each mont...

Re: nanDeck

As long as you confirm that it does not write registry entries (you have already stated that it only writes to the application directory, so that requirement is OK), you can add it yourself: http://www.portablefreeware.com/edit.php Edit: I just remembered, you need to be a member for at least a week...
