No Menu Items Appear

I just installed portable app on my U3 Capable drive.

I have the menu up and running, I've installed 2 programs. Neither one of are on the menu. How can I resolve this?

Note: PortableApps isn't installed to the root of my USB drive, it's installed in a sub directory called PortableApps.

Second question: Is there a way to stop the installers from trying to install new programs into "Drive:\PortableApps\PortableApps\Program Name"? I don't want to have to keep removing "\PortableApps" from the install path.

ok...

Edit: are you talking about the U3 menu or the PAM?

1) are the apps in the correct file structure
Ex:
App
Data
Other
PortableApp.exe

make sure that the menu is in the right place
-root
--portableapps
---portableapps
----portableappsmenu
----Portableappsmenu.exe (i think that is the name)
i am not sure if having in another folder will affect the appearence. And are you using the "Start PortableApps" exe or the actual exe?

2)
I am not sure that it is possible unless you recompile the launcher...but you will have to install it anyway Blum
i hope that helped if i am wrong let me know

My directory

My directory structure

-root
--(Other Directories)
--PortableApps
---Documents
---FireFoxPortable
---NotePad++Portable
---ThunderbirdPortable
---PortableApps
----PortableAppsBackup
----PortableAppsMenu
-----PortableAppsMenu.exe
----Desktop.ini
---StartPortableApps.exe

Something makes me think I have to install the apps into Drive:\PortableApps\PortableApps, correct me if I am wrong?
