... and 2.6.4-2 isn't broken for everyone, it is in alternate daily use 
here on WinXP SP3.   e.g. I might use 2.6.3 Portable for a report I've 
already set up and 2.6.4-2 if I'm trying out a new one.  Because of the 
way PortableApps store settings the two versions happily co-exist and 
use the same data, though not at the same time, obviously.
