Well the PortableApps CEO, John T. Haller, is not perfectly opened to the rest of the world.
It's literally years that he is hindering the use of the "free" programs the volunteers are packaging for him, from third party launchers.
Now to download a program from the PA web site you need to put the current date after the link... it's incredible how his intelligence is wasted for.

And I don't even start with the story of the protection the programs acquire when they are packed inside a PAF... the most annoying one is that if you are not the official PA launcher you are not eligible to silently install the PAF program. The silent install is a fundamental feature a launcher has to offer to its users.


What is not so clear to me is if all the volunteers contributing with the PA project are perfectly aware of how much protected the programs they are packaging for PA become... Programs that originally are free and open source, programs packed for free, for a so called "...fully open source and free platform..." (cit..) that become protected and exclusive programs, downloadable and usable from a single launcher.


But, guys, nobody seems to care about that, above all the PA contributors so what can I do?

Other reason that confirms my preference of using the original app authors links ... even if maybe a little lost of portability (config files in %LOCALAPPDATA%, etc.) smile

You are right. The problem is that if you want to activate the portable mode, you need to use the original installer in unattended mode and I remember that the installer needs administrative privileges... not viable!
