What portable apps are you trying to run? Could you have a virus? Download Malwarebytes and see.

Are they not compatible with Windows 7? Try running in compatibility mode for XP.

Finally, could you describe how they don't run? What happens when you try?

I tried to run Office 2007 and Camtasia and I got the check online solution window. Even in compatibility mode I get the same message. No viruses, no malware present!

Not Correct

I run 310 apps on LiberKey and 74 other apps, all from my D partition.

I recently converted from XP and have had virtually no problems with compatibility.

Yes, you're correct, I'm a portable apps nut.

How exactly do you define LiberKey as portable since it requires installation?

Quote:
Portable use (installed on USB key, external hard drive, music player such as iPod, ...)
It is possible because these applications have been made portable. For example, LiberKey installed on your portable device can be plugged in any computer.
Immediately you have under hand all your familiar tools.

Yes, Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise Edition and it does very well.

I use Word and Outlook many times a day and Excel quite frequently.

This is also a full portable, not simply a regular install on the D drive. All the registry entries and user settings are in the programs own folder on the D drive. It is also software I have purchased and properly registered.

I must admit this is the most challenging conversion I have done as yet.

Jeff:
I'm new to portable apps, and will be setting up a suite to run on my desktop and flash drive. After I get that under my belt, I would love to make Office 2007 portable. Since it was challenging for you, would you be so kind as to lay out the steps you followed to save me a lot of time, tears, and grief?
Thank you,
