Suggestions

I read in your first thread that you searched for some help in getting this application in the PA.c format.

So:

  • appicon.ico: this file doesn't suit the specifications, there were 3 pages in the image with 4 bit color depth, these are not needed. And the optional 256x256 pixel icon for Vista / 7 didn't exist. So I made a new version with these things corrected: Link but I simply upsized the image with IcoFX, so the quality of the 256 px image is quite bad. If you've got a better version you should replace it.
  • In your appinfo.ini you should change DisplayVersion=6.9.0.31 to DisplayVersion=6.9 Release 31 or similiar. This should be a more user-friendly version number.
  • You should of course change the content of the help.html file to something related to Xming and not Chrome Wink
  • What does the "Xming.exe" in the root directory? Is it part of Xming or a seperate launcher? If it's part of Xming put it into App\Xming\ and write a little NSIS to execute it from the root directory. If it's a launcher, include it's source in Other\Source\ so people here could look at it and make suggestions to improve it.
  • So this was quite a lot. I'm not going to test this out myself as I don't have any use for the program.

    Hope I could help you Wink If you've further questions, feel free to ask

    EDIT:
    I forgot to mention that you should add more information about Xming in your first post. There many people who won't test your app aor follow the links because they don't know what it is.
    And it's a "portable launcher for Xming" and not a "portableapps suite for Xming"

thx for your help

it not my program and i don't know what to write in help.html
the icons is all set so nothing to worry about
i really use IcoFX, it so easy with it.
the Xming.exe it not part of the program
and i need help to write a little NSIS to execute it from the root directory.
i don't know how to do that so i found a program that compile a bat file
and you can download and see the result.
you can do all the little changes yourself and help me
and upload it and share with PortableApps community.

thx tal Smile

So did you include the new

So did you include the new icon?
I know the old one will work. But .ico files like this one include several images. In yours there were 3 which are not needed (wasting memory).

Xming.exe :
so this just executes an application in App\Xming\ ?
Put the source (.bat file) in Other\Source\ and upload the new version, this will make it easier to help.

EDIT: I read on wikipedia that Xming's license terms seem to be a bit complicated and you have to ask the author before redistributing the application. So I think you should do so first or alternativeley do an online installer.

Another possibility is doing

Another possibility is doing an online installer. Look at the specification of the PA.c Installer. You can tell it to download and extract one or more files.
Then it would be the user downloading which is for sure legal.

To ask the author just tell him that you're developing a portable launcher for Xming, maybe refer to the "What is a portable app" page, tell him that this dpesn't mean changing his software but only copying necessary files/registry entries at startup/shutdown and then ask if you were allowed to include the program with all its files into one package for download.

thx again

thx but i don't know really to do it
and i have many tests to do.

but i just want to promote this program that ppl will know
and maybe make it portable.
if you can you can do it yourself, seems you know better than me
to do it.
you can combine what i do and do it online installer. if you want
i will send you what i did.

anyway many ppl download this program from me and don't write if they
like it or not.

if some one can do it i will happy.
and thx for portableapps for this site
that i can communicate with ppl that love portable stuff like i do.
