Hi, I'm trying to run a portable app (.exe) and it runs fine on over windows 10. But on my system I'm always getting this following error:

ThinApp has encountered an unexpected error. Click Abort to close the application, Retry to debug, or Continue to ignore the error. Support info: PID=6860, create_process.cpp@4444, Unexpected exception in RelaunchUsingCreateProcess.

The other systems that are running it fine are on build 10240 and they are laptops. That's the only difference I could find.

Is there anything I could do to fix this?
I've tried running as admin, compatibility mode, no use.

Many of my old portable apps that were created in Windows 7 do not work on Windows 10. In addition, the new version of Thinapp does not work with Windows 10 x64. Thinapp creates the portable program, but the completed program displays an error and does not work. Thinapp worked for me in Windows 7, but it fails in Windows 10 x64.

I had problems creating portable apps with Windows 10 until I started using the latest version of Cameyo (www.cameyo.com).

I tested the latest version of Cameyo and have had no problems creating portable applications with many programs. Some programs (that had problems even with Windows 7) still dont virtualize (such as Office 2013 and Office 2016) but most programs I have tested work.

A second virtualization program I use is Turbo Studio (formerly Spoon Studio) (https://turbo.net/studio) - the new version also works in Windows 10 x64.

I recreated all my old Windows 7 portable programs with Cameyo and Turbo Studio and have had few problems.

Now I can create portable versions of programs that I use infrequently and keep them handy on a USB drive.

P.S. I create ALL my portable apps on a VirtualBox virtual drive that contains a clean, virgin install of Windows 10 x64. This is the recommended method of creating portable applications.
