John, this is basicially a question for you, nobody else can really answer this, but only give an opinion.
You made the launcher for Micrsoft's On-Screen Keyboard.
Well, as my first portableapp, I suggested to someone else last night to try to make something simple like a launcher for Microsoft's Calculator.
Well, then I said, hey, why I don't I give it a shot.
So, I took your .nsi script from On-Screen Keyboard Portable, and switched everything with calc.exe, and it seems to work fine. Also, I wasn't sure if it also needed a seperate calculator for Win 9X because I didn't know wheather Win 9X doesn't support the launcher, or just doesn't have a calculator.
I made a splash for the program, you can see it here:
There we go. Much clearer. Edit: Link does no longer work. Question answered basically.

So, I'm asking, could this have potential for an official PortableApp from PortableApps.com after some testing, so people can pop open the calculator quickly and do some quick math when needed. I know you haven't used it yet, but would a calculator be wanted in the applications list? What I want is to know if I can post it in the beta forums WITH that splash? I give like 99% credit to you, because I didn't really do much.
I made the calculator image in the splash myself, so there's no problem there. I know the splash is a litte rough, but it will do for now.
This is a question for everybody-I need to create the icon for the file and in the menu, I have one, just don't know how to save or convert it to be an icon. It creates and icon when I save it as .ico, but it doesn't work with the launcher....
