Drive Letter

Is there any portable application which could maintain a fixed drive letter of user's choice to thumb drive?

My menu Here will substitute

My menu Here will substitute a drive letter when you launch the menu.
Most people use B: as it is the least likely to be in use on any particular PC.

Any standalone application?

Is there any stand-alone application which could provise the same result? I tried to download one from a link obtained from you page but my Anti virus warned me about an attack (trogen-horse) and deleted the file before installation. This is some two months back. I don't know from where the devil came from !!

False positive. Disable

False positive. Disable your anti-virus, download the file again, then enable your anti-virus again. and send a message to the makers of the anti-virus product to let them know that they are improperly identifying something as an issue.

PortableApps.com Menu 1.1 Beta 5

The next beta of the menu, which is being released [when it's done], has this feature. It won't be available as a standalone app, though, it's part of the PortableApps.com Platform.

Edited to remove all hint of a timeframe.

Thanks John, Thanks a lot..Visulising _(understanding) the end user's needs is one of the main qualities expected from a perfect programmer ( I would like to say Software Designer ). And you are one among them. Hats off !

Speaking of the next beta, when can I start working on the next ver of PAM?
I sent you a couple emails, waiting to hear back.

Next Release

Sorry, I'm a little behind in email again. I'm posting it in SVN on SourceForge with the 1.1 release so we can all work together on it from there from that point on. I've given both of you SVN access already (did you check to see that it's working?) I'll get through some email later today.

A-Yup

1.1 Beta 5 is introducing the "Basic" theming support I'd mentioned. We'll be adding in the full-blown "Advanced" support which lets you move controls and resize the form in 1.2.

Folders

Sir,
Another most essential option u might consider to include is the ability to add folders and sub-folders to the main menu to avoid over crowding..
Further suggestions for ur consideration:
1) to start an app along with the menu
2) to close /exit all open portable apps when the user exits the menu (to avoid error and freezing when we eject the device forgetting the open apps) .

Hope you would consider

And

It will be done when it's done.

I need to keep telling myself to never, *EVER* give even an estimate of a possible timeframe in the future because someone will always say "Where is it?????"

Well . . .

Okay. But maybe you could tell us about it and make us ruin our computers from the drool so you won't have to deal with us.

Thanks
