Back in May I had trouble downloading and installing v1.1.0, reported it here, then next day it magically resolved, downloading and installing as expected. I did not, however, attempt run the program after install until the other day which ended quickly in error (screenshot #1)

Although not clear about dropping 32bit support in 1.1.0 it seems this was intended change in version 1.1.0, even though the installer allowed instal on 32bit OS (which I run Win7sp1 on this older desktop, linux on all else). Perhaps a note specifying works on 64bit OS only, with option to instal last known good version for 32bit which appears to be v1.0.7 would be useful for this popular program.

from the changelog, under Windows:  https://handbrake.fr/news.php
- Updated installer to block installation on 32-bit systems to avoid confusion (unsupported since 1.1.0)

At first it looked like the 0MB reports in logs for downloads, except it is actually creating a Zero byte file and considers it updated (portable version).  Looking into this further I was unable to find portable version on site at all (used to be found in "builds" download page. Checked their forums and found this post on broken download for the portable version, which confirms it is broken on their end.
https://forum.piriform.com/topic/51919-download-link-broken-ccleaner-v5436520-portable/

Still, oddly, PMPC appears to d/l this zero byte file, which I cannot reproduce attempting manual download using same link in browser, nothing happens in browser except refresh back to page. Expected behavior would include a warning or fail of some sort with no empty file created in place of expected file.

UWT v4.x only works for Win10+ and refuses to run on Win7. Please consider adding UWT v3 (for Win8 users) and UWT v2.2 (for Win7 and Vista users) as options for download in the portable apps category. The below is their statement from the bottom of the UWT v4.4.1 page, by the manual download button:

"Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4.4.1 for Windows 10 has been developed by Paras Sidhu, for TheWindowsClub.com. It supports Windows 10, 32-bit & 64-bit and Internet Explorer 11. It requires.NET Framework 4 to work, which comes pre-installed in Windows 10.

Windows 7 & Windows Vista users should continue to use Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 should continue to use Ultimate Windows Tweaker 3."

an option to download each, or all, versions would be great, realizing v3 and v2.2 won't see any updates for the old OS versions it would be nice to have the option available through PMPC.

Alternately, consider marking the UWT menu item in portable apps category as "for Win10+ only (see website for old OS supporting versions)" as a warning/notice for users.

Thanks :)

Related question first- can I direct PMPC to check for and update portable apps in a specific directory? (and be able to specify download path for portable apps would be great!)
While the desktop /PortableApps folder creation is nice I do move them to my /PORT directory afterwards, usually in individual folders there or combined with like apps.

which brings me to this weird behavior noticed today, after a cancelled update yesterday in which half the portables I selected to d/l were stopped before completing. Giving it another attempt today I went back into log to see what skipped yesterday

5/17/2018 9:07:59 AM - Failed to get download information for HandBrake 1.1.0 Download URL: https://download.handbrake.fr/releases/1.1.0/HandBrake-1.1.0-x86_64-Win_GUI.exe

Couple of things noticed while attempting to add this program to my pc (old win7 box, 32bit). First the fail shown in log snip above- which works fine manually downloading from website. Second, they appear to have removed or dropped support for 32bit Handbrake, although it is not identified in PMPC menu as 64bit only (last 32bit version compatible looks to be v1.0.7, as seen here-

HandBrakeCLI-1.0.7-win-i686.zip 09-Apr-2017 20:54

Main page: https://handbrake.fr/downloads.php
only lists 64bit GUI version for windows and if you go to CLI version it has a link for v1.1.0 CLI but it fails with a 404 (file not found)
