PortableApps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3 (Pre-Release 2)

This release has been outdated by an updated release:
PortableApps.com Platform 1.1 Beta 4

I've posted a package of Portable Apps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3. I'm calling it a pre-release until I can get some folks to verify that it introduces no new bugs over the 1.0.2 Beta 2 release.

New in this version:

GPL Issue Resolved - The GPL issues mentioned before around certain icons have been resolved by moving those icons outside of the compiled binary. (GPLed code can't be combined with Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike licensed objects, but it can be distributed alongside them).

Initial Theming Bits Added - The precursors of the theming engine have been added. This will allow folks interested in trying out the theming abilities to start working on things. Keep in mind that the theme file format and structure hasn't been finalized yet. I've put together an example theme so you can see how it works. Just download the file ThemeExample.zip and extract it to the PortableAppsMenu\App\DefaultData\Theme directory (after installing this new Menu, of course... and backing up your original files). It's just a quick example of what will be possible... I went with a basic black for the folks that may want to use it with Vista or a dark Windows theme (like me). Here's a screenshot of the theme in action.

Initial Localization Bits Added - I added some quick code to show what will be possible with the localization system I'd mentioned earlier, too. By placing a test.locale file in the same directory as PortableAppsMenu.exe, you can get a feel for how the locale system will work. I've posted two examples to get people started, too: test.english-us.locale (handy for starting a new localization to contribute to the project), test.swedish.locale (contributed by Johan, our Swedish translation lead). Just save them to the same directory as PortableAppsMenu.exe and rename them to test.locale. Here's a screenshot of the Swedish locale file in action.

Download Portable Apps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3 (Pre-Release 2) and extract the files to your existing PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu directory to try it out

Download Portable Apps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3 (Pre-Release 2) Source - This is a Borland Delphi 2006 Project fileset. It should contain all the necessary files to compile and run. If any Delphi folks could verify this, it would be appreciated.

That's it for now. This should get us back on track to releasing menu updates monthly (at a minimum) and be able to start adding some of the most popular feature requests.

UPDATE - Pre-Release 2 fixes the issue with the menu missing your last app.

Regards,
John

Sweet

I'll try compiling with Delphi 2005.

Also, I'll get started on a green theme and a blue theme.
I did use the black Royale, but there's no good matching FF theme, so I used the blue/orange one (RoyaleFour) with the FF theme Planet Mir.

Edit:
Error reading sbtnApplication1.Margins.Left: Property Margins does not exist.
Error reading sbtnApplication1.Margins.Top: Property Margins does not exist.
Error reading sbtnApplication1.Margins.Right: Property Margins does not exist.
Error reading sbtnApplication1.Margins.Bottom: Property Margins does not exist.
Error reading sbtnApplication2.Margins.Left: Property Margins does not exist.
[snip]

I just went Ignore All Laughing out loud
Then when compiling,
Undeclared indentifier trayiconMenu
Undeclared indentifier Hint

When running:

  • No tray icon
  • Hovering over the buttons on the menu doesn't remove the hovered status until you re-hover
  • PortableApps.com logo at top looks bad

So, it will compile, but not with full features.
Damn.

Hmmm...

That's really odd. It's the same source I compiled the released EXE from and the same one I have in the screenshots. Let me take a look at what's going on.

Oh, actually, I just realized you were doing Delphi 2005. I've checked things over and it apparently will only work with 2006.

I just compiled correctly

I just compiled correctly PAM with BDS2006. I will check pam's source later. Thank you John. Laughing out loud

Ah, I found some memory leak with FastMM (I use it us memory manager in my softwares and to find memory leak):
--------------------------------2007/1/5 17:30:55--------------------------------
This application has leaked memory. The small block leaks are (excluding expected leaks registered by pointer):

45 - 60 bytes: TStringList x 1
61 - 76 bytes: Unknown x 1
93 - 108 bytes: String x 3
125 - 140 bytes: String x 2

Undeclared indentifier trayiconMenu
TrayiconMenu is new component of Delphi 2006. It isn't in previous version of delphi 2006, like 2005.

Latest thing: Can I help to translate PAM in italian?

Leaks / Translations

I haven't used FastMM before. Does it provide any more detail on where the leaks are?

Sure thing on translations. It's being done entirely in .locale files (glorified INI files). I posted an example English one as part of this release. This is just the first set of strings for folks to test. The full .locale format is being completed. But if you start with that, you can drop it in the PAM directory as test.locale and have the Menu in Italian today.

This is complete log of FastMM. Anyway memory leak are in procedure SetupButtons:

For translation, I'm wait full .locale to make italian translation. Smiling

Not fully understanding what to do to change the locale file, I've read all of this thred I think and can't figure it out? I save it in Portable/PortableAppsMenu/ with the portableappsmenu.exe, as test.launguage.locale? Do I have to recompile anything?:S

No recompiling is necessary.

You just have to rename it to "test.locale".

Anything

As stated in the initial post, the theme format isn't fully defined yet. It's just a series of three images. You can use PhotoShop, Paint Shop Pro, GIMP, MS Paint or anything else to create your own images to use as a theme.

Completed Theme

Hey all you PortableAppers,
I worked out a theme that I call "Wonders of Nature". I designed it for those who are concerned about space on their drive. you can get it from (and view it from):
http://im.forumco.com/userfiles/scoutconnor/background.jpg

Please post feedback in the "PortableApps Themes" Thread so I can improve it

That theme is a bit odd. Maybe you could make one with a background of JUST leaves. it would look nicer. But the theme is a good start.

John,

You said it's the same code already used.
Does that mean the current PAM is faulty?

Missing Icons

Same problem for me. "F:\PortableApps\Tasks\Wiki Tasks.exe" is not picked up by the menu, though "Wiki Library.exe" in the same directory is. I moved the latter to another folder - the menu continues to pick up this exe file, but ignore the former. Just to be safe, after moving the file, I unplugged the drive and plugged it back in to clear any "remembered" icons, but the same problem persists.

I don't know if the compilation of the exe matters, but both are a batch file to load portable firefox and then the wiki file compiled with exescript and reshack to change the icon. Both done the same way.

PR1 or PR2

You'll note that it's been changed to Pre-Release 2 (Build 1.0.2.4) which fixes the issue where the last icon (alpha by product name) is left off. Are you now using this newer release?

Compile OK, Error executing

Compiled using BDS 2006 Architect 10.0.2163.24987 Update 1 on Windows XP PRO SP 2. I copied the EXE to my protable HDD in place of version 1.0. I am running PAM from the root of my protable drive. When launching the app from the same machine I get the following error message:

Cannot open file "E:\App\DefaultData\Theme\background.jpg". The system cannot find the path specified.

I found that I had to copy the App folder from the project directory to the root of my portable drive. Now the app launches, but it only finds applications stored in the root of my drive. V1.0 was looking in :\PortableApps\

I haven't looked into the code to see if this is a bug or something that I am doing wrong. I will look into this later, but for now, it compiles and runs on my machine.

Placement

Your errors are in placement. It needs to be placed in the PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu directory, same as before. And the App directory needs to stay with it now as well. All images are external and, if they're not found, you'll get an error.

Placement

I have been looking at the code and I see that changing the placement of the files will fix my problem. I noticed that I have the PAM executable in the root of my drive as well as in the correct location under PortableApps\

I corrected my file placement and everything is working as expected now. I hope I didn't cause any confusion.

I've been looking at your code and it is well done. Thanks for a great application!

StartPortableApps,exe?

Perhaps you're confusing it with StartPortableApps.exe which just calls PortableAppsMenu.exe in the location mentioned. SPA.exe should be in the root directory to allow for easy launching of the menu.

I tried to keep the code as readable as possible and I added some extra comments for some of the current temporary hacks (like paths to the theme and icons) and what they'll be in the future. Glad you like it Smiling

I'm using Delphi 7, so I was unable to compile.

I REALLY like the dark theme! Runs like a charm - although I had no problem with the previous version.

Thanks!!!

Suggestions

Je propose de remplacer quelques lignes du fichier:

  1. ICON_VIDEOS=Vidéos
  2. MENU_RESTORE=Restaurer une sauvegarde
  3. MENU_OPTIONS_SMALL_FONTS=Petite police
  4. MENU_OPTIONS_LARGE_FONTS=Grande police
  5. MENU_OPTIONS_ADD_APP=Installer une application

ligne 1: ajout de l'accent sur le "e"
Ligne 2: suppression de "depuis"
Lignes 3 et 4: remplacement de "caractères" par "police"
Ligne 5: suppression de "nouvelle"

Ces propositions sont faites dans l'optique de réduire la longueur des lignes et d'utiliser des termes (comme police) qui sont largement utilisés dans les applications francophones et francisée.
Ceci est fait dans le plus grand respect de ta réalisation.

Compiles perfectly with TurboDelphi.
Sweet, I was able to change the documents directory structure to my liking and set the pictures button to open with irfanview.
And the menu looks fantastic with the theme I was able to create thanks to the new theme support.
Which brings up a suggestion for a future feature,
The ability to have Music, Pictures and Videos open with a custom program.

This is only a minor release. It was supposed to fix a few issues by the looks of things and give a taste of the theme options. The full release will include a bit more no doubt.

What menu options are you looking to remove? As its open source and its above you can easily change and re-compile it. Ive never touched delphi in my life and I figured it out soon enough.

Correct

It's a bug fix with some new features.

I believe Day is referring to removing certain entries from the menu.
Example:

PortableApps\OMG
PortableApps\OMG\App.exe
PortableApps\OMG\7za.exe

Would turn up on the list as

OMG: The app
7zip command line launcher

A feature which has been promised is removing certain entries, so it would just be

OMG: The app

Looks ok, but...

I think between you, Day, and others the effort is noticed, but I think if the color was just on the border and left alone on the right where the buttons are (grey/black) then they would conform more to what John's original theme is. Look at the themes SmithTech did. I think those are exactly what John could use without modification.

I could have the gradient going sideways, so it's dark in the centre and light on the outside or vice versa.
I prefer it the way it is, but one must always please the customer Eye
Hopefully John will give us the PSD and/or XCF used to create the theme when he's back.

If you want to do the gradient like John did in the original use the gradient in photoshop there is an option to do a "outward" gradient that basically starts in the middle and fills outward, you can do it horizontally or vertically.

It is getting...

better and better! Thank you John!

Two small issues on my behalf:

1. If I translate (rename) the "Video" Folder/Icon it does not show that after the PortableAppsMenu-restart.

2. To me it seems a bit weird to have a "Documents" button which does not lead me to documents ONLY but to a folder containing the other folders for Music, Video and Pictures too. Forces one to create another Documents folder inside the Documents folder.

RE: Documents

John has it setup the same way XP sets up the My Documents folder.

Your My Documents folder is home to everything, while the My Music and My Video folders are just sub-folders in My Documents in XP.

It's no different. You save your normal documents into the "dcouments" folder, while music goes in the "music" sub-folder.

I understand why John

I understand why John structured the folders the way he did, compatibility and standardization.
That should be the default for most users who are used to doing things the "normal" way.
Unfortunately Microsoft frequently does things half @$$.
Music and Videos etc. aren't documents why they did it that way is beyond me.
One of the first things I do when I set up a new machine is move and rename those folders to.
+My Files
+-My Documents
+-My Music
+-My Pictures
etc.

I downloaded the source for PAM and changed the structure to
root
+PortableFiles
+-My Documents
+-My Music
+-My Pictures

Now I'm just waiting on the option to Add/Remove/Modify apps in the menu and PAM will be perfect.

"respaldo" es una buena traduccion para backup.

sugeriría este cambio:
MENU_SEARCH_COMPUTER=Buscar en esta computadora

computadora es un termino mas usado en latinoamerica que ordenador y en algunos paises el termino ordenador es desconocido.

Estoy de acuerdo con lo de PC, ya que es un termino que los hispanohablantes relacionan con computadora u ordenador.

Propuesta complementaria

Propongo la siguiente traducción, basada en la colocada por allesklar.

Salvo su mejor opinión, yo creo que habría que evitar tener un "español por país".

Si se comparte esta idea, me parece que sería bueno recibir comentarios que nos lleven a determinar una "versión única".

Aquí está la traducción:

[FORM_MAIN]
ICON_DOCUMENTS= Mis archivos
ICON_MUSIC=Música
ICON_PICTURES=Imágenes
ICON_VIDEO=Videos
ICON_EXPLORE=Explorador
ICON_BACKUP=Respaldos
ICON_OPTIONS=Herramientas
ICON_HELP=Ayuda
ICON_SEARCH=Búsquedas
MENU_BACKUP=Crear respaldo
MENU_RESTORE=Restaurar respaldo
MENU_OPTIONS_SMALL_FONTS=Menú en letra pequeña
MENU_OPTIONS_LARGE_FONTS=Menú en letra grande
MENU_OPTIONS_ADD_APP=Agregar un programa
MENU_OPTIONS_REMOVE_APP=Quitar un programa
MENU_OPTIONS_REFRESH_ICONS=Actualizar menú de programas
MENU_OPTIONS_GET_APPS=Obtener más programas...
MENU_SEARCH_DRIVE=Buscar en la unidad USB
MENU_SEARCH_COMPUTER=Buscar en la PC
MENU_SEARCH_WEB=Buscar en Internet

Se ha evitado usar mayúsculas en todas las palabras, a excepción de la primera letra.

En algunos casos, más que la traducción literal del inglés, se ha optado por incluir una leyenda que se ha considerado de mayor claridad, sobre todo para los usuarios con poca destreza en el manejo de PC's

Las diferencias con la primera traducción son:

Documentos por Mis archivos
Vídeos (con acento) a Videos (sin acento)
Explorar por Explorador
Backup por Respaldos
Opciones por Herramientas
Buscar por Búsquedas
Crear backup por Crear respaldo
Restaurar backup por Restaurar respaldo
Fuentes pequeñas por Menú en letra pequeña
Fuentes grandes por Menú en letra grande
Añadir una aplicación por Agregar un programa
Quitar una aplicación por Quitar un programa
Actualizar iconos por Actualizar menú de programas
Obtener más aplicaciones... por Obtener más programas...
Buscar en esta unidad por Buscar en la unidad USB
Buscar en este ordenador por Buscar en la PC

NOTA: Si videos sin acento no es aceptable en todos los países hispanoparlantes, creo que sería mejor utilizar la palabra "Películas"

Umm, films...it's a nice word, but, I think videos ir better. Because films would be a full movie normally in my thinking, whearas a video can be any kind of "video".

And the capital letters at just the beggining makes sense.

El problema con película, es que se refiere a eso, a una película, no a un vídeo/video (que por cierto, son sinónimos, al igual estratósfera y estratosfera).

Found an issue. When it comes to displaying your icons it checks the version number of windows. Problem is it wants the major version to be 5 or higher and the minor to be 1 or higher for it to display alpha transparant icons.

Vista is version 6.0. So it fails on the...

and (Win32MinorVersion >= 1)

So I changed that line (around line 300) to read

if (Win32MajorVersion >= 5) and (Win32MinorVersion >= 1) or (Win32MajorVersion >= 6)

Im not a delphi programmer, this is just the way I figured to get it to display alpha icons in XP and Vista.

it wants it to be 5.1 or higher.

Bug Report Thing

Description: Portable Apps Menu itself will appear in the menu list if the folder it is in is not named "PortableAppsMenu".

Workaround: Rename the folder it resides in to "PortableAppsMenu" and the item will no longer appear in the list.

Suggested Fix #1 (Recommended): Get the full path of the running program (ie C:\Path\PortableAppsMenu.exe) and ensure it is never added to the menu, and remove the special check for the "PortableAppsMenu" folder. In some languages, you can get the full path of the running program by grabbing the "0th" command line parameter.

Suggested Fix #2: Do not use the directory check. Instead, check for the PortableAppsMenu.exe filename.
