ALT 1.1.1 (Application Launcher Template)

I found Klonk's Template to be so useful in creating launchers, I decided to try my hand at it.
Mainly so I could learn NSIS more.
Version 1.1.1 fixes subsequent launch in InitApp (left it out, oops)
Version 1.1 adds registry handling and subsequent launch handling.
Registry entries are moved to {entry}_BAK in the registry rather than copied to a reg file on the portable drive, saving write cycles and write time.

cannot find .exe

I am trying to make my Microsoft Money 2006 portable.
My .exe file is in: S:\PortableApps\Money\App\MNYCoreFiles\msmoney.exe

In my installer I have:
; **************************************************************************
; * Define constants
; **************************************************************************
!define AUTHOR "" ; SmithTech
!define APP "Money 2006" ; insert application name, e.g. "TestApp"
!define VER "1.0.0.0" ; insert version of launcher
!define EXE "msmoney.exe" ; insert program exe name, e.g. "testapp.exe"
!define PNAME "${App} Portable" ; format of portable name (dirs and filenames)
!define ICON "Money.ico" ; comment this line out when default icon should be used

After running NSIS when I click on the .exe file that was produced I get "msmoney.exe was not found"

Any help would be appreciated.

Haven't used the template in

Haven't used the template in quite some time, but I believe your path is incorrect.
S:\PortableApps\Money\App\MNYCoreFiles\msmoney.exe
should be
S:\PortableApps\Money\App\Money 2006\msmoney.exe
as the launcher template uses this line to define the app folder
!define APP "Money 2006" ; insert application name, e.g. "TestApp"
