Generally I can get my portable apps to run but on the odd occasion the platform causes problems. When I realized that TJ6 was one of the programs that wasn't going to work well in Linux while inside the PortableApps platform I moved it outside.

Without the install the program will still run but will be looking for the registration keys in the wrong place. It may also look for Journal Volumes and User Preferences settings and other things where they don't exist either. Some of my User Preferences weren't staying in effect from one use to the next and that problem also vanished with the install.
