You can probably just delete that new folder (Portable Programs folder inside the original portable Reaper folder).

I don't use Windows a lot, so I'm not really sure how its permission system works. I tried creating a portable install in "Program files" and also moving an existing portable install into there. Both approaches give me a tons of permission problems. Why not just use another folder?
i moved it all back to the C drive. Still has the same problem. Maybe some left over permissions issues? I wonder how I can reset the permissions to default and start from there.

this is very likely not an issue with your script.

Did you check out all permission-related preferences in the portable folder settings? There's a good chance that the permissions carry over when copying files. Again, I'm unfortunately not very fluent with Windows...

There's also still a chance that the issue you're having is completely unrelated to permissions... Best way to check would be to make a clean new portable install and try updating with the utility there.

why does it ask to save project and then show that it's loading a new project and then closes?

Default UX Alteration Request

Hi! Still loving UU, soooo good.

However, I have a request to change the order of the update process for users.

Currently, the UX steps proceed thusly:
  1. Select new version to install
  2. UU downloads installer
  3. UU asks for confirmation to install
  4. UU installs new version
This requires the user to wait around for the download to complete, which goes against the whole point of Update Utility, which is to make the update process less laborious (imo).

Much better imo would be to swap steps 2 and 3 so that the user can confirm everything up front:
  1. Select new version to install
  2. UU asks for confirmation to install
  3. UU downloads installer AND installs new version

that saves a few seconds, but makes perfect sense and is a quicker process. Good thinking!

Makes sense. I initially thought that the user might want to continue working during the download. But I guess no one really does that. Added to my TODO list.

Thank you FTC!

Given widespread broadband and the small size of Reaper installers, it's for the best.
