Wallpaper Changer

Using a u3 device there is an application that will change your wallpaper when you insert the device and then change it back when you take it out. is it possible to do this using the portable apps suite (Menu, not sure if that's it right name)
Becuase that has always been a pretty usefull utility.

as well as enabling the menu to launch applications upon insertion or along with the menu. i know this is probably possible by editing the Autorun.inf file but i've yet to try and i'm sure it would be usefull for people not as knowlable with computers as the rest of us.

Built Into the PortableApps.com Platform

It's built into the PortableApps.com Platform (no need for a 3rd party app to do it). Just be sure you're running the latest PortableApps.com Platform 1.1 Beta. Details are on that page.

Thanks John :p

I was about to post a reply Blum
I type too slow Sad

Question though, I was going to say you "could" try the 1.1 Beta. If it is so stable that we can just tell people to use it maybe it shouldn't be beta at this point? Perhaps RC, as "beta" can look scary to a newbie.

Good point

The current Beta is actually preferable to the 1.0.x releases as it is more stable and has less issues for all users. Perhaps we'll push out a 1.1 of it this week since it will be a few weeks before the additional features will be stable.

I agree

I think we should get 1.1 out as the public release, since It Actually Works™ and it has so many more features. It Rocks.™ It Just Does.™

Umm...

John, I was wondering...

since you're already making a wallpaper changer as a part of the upcoming PAM, do you think you could release a small .exe which would do the same for people who don't use PAM?

I mean, no offense, I have the greatest amount of respect for you, and your fabulous work here. In fact, I use your apps on a daily basis.

However, I kinda use PStart instead of PAM, since it works better for me. (not to say that PAM isn't a fine piece of software, I just prefer PStart, for some odd reason.) and it seems kind of weird for me to install the whole PA Menu just to use the wallpaper changer.

Now I know that you're a busy guy, and I totally understand if you're unable to do this

Please Make TiLP Portable
