Adding programs to portable apps in subfolders

I would like to add SharpDevelop to my portableapps menu but it doesn't seem to allow me to add it since the folder structure is like this:
SharpDevelop
-bin
--program.exe
I.e. the executable is a subfolder of the program folder.
I cannot change this since it requires this file structure.
Any help?

Simply use a starter

like starthere.exe ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/listings/strthere.zip,
put it into the mainfolder, choose an icon and add it to the starthere.exe with
resource viewer, edit the ini and it should work. Description is in German http://www.heise.de/software/download/special/pimp_my_stick/9_5 , but it should work, else come back

Um

Then you have to mimic the PAF structure. This way you don't have to move anything around, rather you can just copy a few files into the directory and go.
