Since I wasn't able to glean an appropriate answer from searching the forums I figured I'd post this. I was wondering what the practical limits were for the total number of apps that menu system will support?
I use a 64 gig stick formatted as exFAT. It has just under 900 separate portable apps stored on it. Occasionally the menu crashes. Sometimes it just freezes, other times it throws exceptions. This doesn't happen a lot, not enough anyway for me to submit a bug, but I was just wondering what the expected limits are.
Also on a side note, one thing I noticed is that over time the portableappsmenu.ini file can become a garbage dump. As I change configurations, add, move, or remove apps, the old entries just hang around. On my old 16 gig stick it was starting to take a long time just for the menu to load. I could go through and painstakingly sort the lines but there should be a better way. Would it be possible to have a switch somewhere where the program could output a list of files it cannot locate or verify? It's already parsing the file and checking the apps listed there so I would think it shouldn't be too difficult to simply dump the results out to a log file. That way I could clean the file up with a minimum of work.
And just a comment John, I love this program. I use the heck out of it and have sent contributions over twice now. Keep up the good work.
