I have a mixture of applications packaged for PortableApps and applications which are portable but have not been packaged for the PortableApps platform. When installing the stand-alone applications I followed the instructions here about creating a folder below the PortableApps folder and installing all of the run-time files there.
This seems all to work, except for certain situations. I have one application that requires to be launched with parameters but I can see no way of enabling this with PortableApps. I tried installing an application shortcut (.lnk file) with the launch command and parameters in the Target and then the actual application folder below this but the PortableApps menu refresh ignores it.
It seems that the PortableApps Menu build looks only for .exe files, which is a problem with another application as it has several .exe files all in the same directory and the menu build inserts menu items for all of them, even though I am interested in only the main executable. Once again, a shortcut launch fails to resolve the problem.
Does anyone have any ideas how to do this, other than drop PortableApps and use SmithTech Portable Menu instead?
