Portableapps code

Hi everybody! I would like to solve a doubt!

Can I download the source of portableapps menu, change some code (for my own purpose) compile and use it only in my own USB drive? with no problems about copyright or this stuff?

and is it possible, change the source and compile my version? what compiler do I need?

and what is the language that it is built? I know something about C/C++

Thank you so much, and sorry for my horrible english :S

Open Source.

The PortableApps.com menu is completely open source. You can edit and compile your own version without any licensing issues.

However, the menu is written in Delphi, and I *believe* you'll need Delphi 2010 (which is paid software, an unfortunate caveat).

To clear it up a bit more,

To clear it up a bit more, Beta 6 will use Delphi XE. The current build for Beta 5 is still using Delphi 2010.

Delphi is a variant of Object Pascal

And there is an Open Source IDE that PARTIALLY supports Delphi.
It's called Lazarus.

If you are creative enough, you probably could adapt a lot of the code to compile in Lazarus. You probably won't get every function, because I've been told that the menu uses certain proprietary components that are only in Delphi.

But, if you have time, skill and patience, I'd bet you could make a menu that does almost everything that the PA.c Menu does.

It would be a lot of work.

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
