I believe this is true as I have not been able to find out how change the directory name and still use the start exe.
To clarify StartPortableApps.exe can be moved anywhere as long as a directory called "PortableApps" exists in the same directory with the Portable apps menu located inside.
The Portability issue is that you can't use it to point to any other directory other than "PortableApps" and it must be in the same relative location.
All the other apps support changing directory names (including "PortableApps"), usually for program as well as data/profile locations.
For instance you can change "PortableApps" directory to "Smurf" and all the other apps will work including the menu.
The only app that breaks (is not portable) is StartPortableApps.exe.
Reasons for doing this include:
-Having 2 parralel installations with apps for different reasons or users in each menu depending on your usage requirement at the time.
-Cause I want to.
-Placing the StartPortableApps.exe in the root or some other central location and the "PortableApps" directory in a user directory.
If I am incorrect please let me know how to construct the INI file to make it portable.
