Portable Apps update issue on automatic downloads
« on: June 18, 2021, 09:08:58 AM »
I've noticed that when PatchMyPC runs my daily overnight update, Portable Apps are saved into the root of my main hard drive instead of the designated folder.  However, when I run an update manually and a Portable App is available, it downloads correctly into the folder I designated for Portable Apps.

Log file for manual download:

I'm guessing it might be that the automated task doesn't have rights to my profile?

Anyway, I thought you'd want to know.

Thanks, as ever, for the Free Updater.
