    Thanks for posting the pictures @ffm76600

    I see that you are using the Portable version and I think those options aren’t available there, I will check.
    The non portable, main version, will have those options active.
    Were you attempting to use the main or portable versions?

    Thanks for letting us know so that we can fix/improve it.

  • conexware

    @ffm76600 @Mili these are indeed disabled since they are not applicable to portable version (cant update portable version via patchbeam, it means it would have to install something to the system).

  • Thanks for answers :slightly_smiling_face: .

    Yes I use the portable version and i confirm “Auto Update” and “Plugins” options are active in the main version.

  • conexware
