my portable apps aren't detected
« on: May 03, 2018, 11:49:15 PM »
even though I've set another path installed (and in another drive/partition),
they aren't detected

I even restarted the app but still not detected

Hi,

The portable app detection will only detect portable apps downloaded from Patch My PC initially.

What do you mean by installed? Portable apps don't install they are just binary files you can run without an installer.

DosBox doesn't install, it just extract its portable files to a new folder!
