PortableApps Menu Mod r10 - *Outdated*

Due to popular demand and the ridiculous size of this topic, I've made a new topic for R11 located here.

PortableApps Menu Mod r10

More Information & Download

File is in RAR format, use 7-Zip, WinRAR or another RAR-compatable archive extractor to extract it. To install, just drop the folder into your PortableApps folder and follow the instructions in 'readme_mod.txt' to install any locale or theme files.

This is a learning experience for me, so please post any bugs, no matter how insignificant. I'm also open to implement new features if they're reasonable.

EDIT: History files are now available on request, if you're interested on the differences between my version and the original

Thanks to Tewan for hosting, and everyone else who offered ;).

error when loading theme. it

error when loading theme. it seems as though the Data folder has to be in the root of the USB drive. can you make it so it's in \PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\ instead. like all the other ver of PAM. also, the .pafdata files that are created if you enable autorun, can you make is so they delete themselves if they the answer to autoexec is "false". so that there won't be these .pafdata files lying everywhere even though they're not needed.

great version or PAM though c[x

Pafdata files are now

Pafdata files are now deleted if they aren't needed, thanks for the suggestion :).

As for your problem with the Data folder, I'm having trouble reproducing it. How are you launching it, and what version of Windows are you running? Any other information would be helpful :).

I love it

It doesn't show all apps I have (only till Mozilla Firefox, thats 23 programs).
And is there a way to make the buttons of the "install a new App"-menu translatable?
But the autorun works great!!!

The nasty bug with hiding apps is fixed now, so only programs you tell to hide will be hidden. The buttons of the 'Install a new App' dialog are now translatable too, thanks for noticing :).

I like r5 very much

and I like how fast you are to respond to suggestions. Wink
But
I have some improvements for R6:
Kevin had a problem here and I am having the same with r5. It says: Cannot open File: "H:\Data\Theme\Linspire\Theme\background.jpg".The systen cannot find the path specified". I think I know the solution.
The Menu is looking for background.jpg in
[myusb:\Data\Theme\Mythemename\Theme]
instead of
[myusb:\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\Data\Theme\Mythemename\Theme].
If you could fix that I think it would be cool as it would allow theming.
If I copy
[myusb:\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\Data]
to
[myusb:\].
then it works.
But it still prompts me with an error because it wants a separate set of icons for each theme. I think a solution for this would be to look whether there is a custom set of icons for the theme and if not just use the defaults.

Hope this is not too confusing. Wink

EDIT

I have been playing around a little and if a theme has no icons and I restart the menu, it either prompts me the theme would be corrupt and it uses the defaults or it starts totally screwed and I have to reinstall the menu.
PS.
Where does it store the info about which exe has been renamed???

R6 now uses the default

R6 now uses the default iconset if the chosen theme doesn't supply it's own, so that problem should be rectified. As for the file that contains the exe name, it's 'filename.pafdata' in that program's directory (EG ExampleApp.exe's name data would be in 'PortableApps\ExampleApp\ExampleApp.pafdata').

Instead of reinstalling the menu, just deleting the INI file while the menu is closed should reset everything to the defaults.

As for Kevin and your theming problems, I have a vague suspicion of the cause. And by that I mean almost no idea at all :P. However, I've changed the theme loader code slightly, and that should hopefully fix the problem.

PS. If that doesn't work, it'd be helpful to know where you are installing the menu, where your apps are stored, what version of windows you're running and if possible can you check on another computer to see if the problem occurs there too. Any other information would be helpful as well :).

R6 works great, you fixed

R6 works great, you fixed that other problem that i had. though there's still some more problems with the skinning process. i hav a skin called "mcmz´s ZarthWork RED -Remake-" but when ever i choose it, this pops up "The theme you last selected,'cmz´s ZarthWork RED -Remake-', is not installed correctly, has been deleted or is corrupted. You are now being automatically reverted to the default theme. You see how the skin's name is "mcmz´s ZarthWork RED -Remake-" but it displays in the message as "cmz´s ZarthWork RED -Remake-". which is missing a letter "m" in front of the skin. i think that's the reason that theme isn't working. PAM is not reading the skins' name properly and writing it in correctly into the .ini file as well.
i'm using windows vista home premium btw and i store the PAM in "H:\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu" and i use the launcher which is located in the root of the USB to launch PAM. i store all my portableapps in "H:\PortableApps\"

though i'v got to say, this is the best version of PAM i'v seen so far. great job Biggrin

That's an odd bug, it happened on mine once with the same theme but I couldn't get it to happen again. I've got no clue what causes it, try renaming and see if that helps.

Theme Chooser Bug?

I think I have found a bug with the theme chooser. For example, I have two themes, Default and Dark. In the theme chooser menu, it shows Default and Dark to allow changing of skins with the keyboard. Whenever I choose Dark, close the program, then look at the .ini config it shows:

[SETTINGS]
LargeFonts=False
StayVisible=False
Theme=&rk
Locale=english-us

I don't know if this is just my flash drive, but I have tested it on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP Media Center.

Hope this help's ya. Smile

P.S. Very nice mod... love it.

(EDIT: Oh, this also leads to it defaulting back to the default skin because of it not being about to find the &rk skin.)

In the readme .

In the readme :P.

- ExecuteonClose executes a program of your choice when PAM closes
	- Defaults to 'execonclose.bat'
	- Can be changed by adding 'ExecOnclose=' under '[Settings] in the PAM ini file.

EDIT: In other words, stick a batch file called 'execonclose.bat' with everything you want to do in it. I chose this method because it minimizes drive access, which makes shutdown much, much faster.

Bug with theme feature in r8 while running under Windows 2K

When switching themes the diameter around the PortableApps.com logo is choppy.
This bug does not occur in r7.

Can you elaborate on this

Can you elaborate on this further? Which themes cause this, does it happen when you start up, what exactly do you mean by diameter (as PAM as two ways of displaying the logo, it's hard to tell what does what), et cetera. Try R9, I changed the theme engine a bit more so it'd hopefully prevent problems like this :P.

I had the same error. All themes cause this, and I'm using R9. There's a screen shot here

I think

we had the same thing with some beta of the original Menu.
Someone could start a search...

EDIT
And btw I dont have that problem.
Maybe its your screen resolution?

Interesting error, it's

Interesting error, it's caused by me allowing visibility for both logo-types, and then not checking to make sure it didn't mess with anything important :P. It should be fixed in R10

It does not occur during startup

Only after switching. For the logo I mean it gets choppy around the logo.

You are doing a lot of updating two since yesterday Afternoon? Very efficient. And the PAM mod is VERY good also. Biggrin

I added this to the PortableAppsMenu.ini
ExecOnclose=psu.exe -cleanup
It doesn't run on PAM Exit

Make a batch (.bat) file

Make a batch (.bat) file with the command in it.

- ExecuteonClose executes a program of your choice when PAM closes
	- Defaults to 'execonclose.bat'
	- Can be changed by adding 'ExecOnclose=' under '[Settings] in the PAM ini file.

EDIT:

For example, I have in my config
ExecOnclose=Autoclose.bat

In the root of my USB drive I have Autoclose.bat with all the things I want it to do.

Options Suggestions - Joint Effort

I created a VB6 version of PAM HERE but VB6 has so many limitations and dependencies on windows files.
So I decided to start duplicating the features in delphi starting with the PAM MOD.
Anyway, it doesn't make much sense to duplicate work already done.
I was wondering if netdroid would be interested in adding the feature from my VB6 version and or working together on the mod?

EDIT: so far I added the drivespacebar.stretch to the ini, removed the drivespacebar.width (fixes issue when changing themes, bar is set to full width), and started on the advanced options form.

I'm more than happy to co-operate with other coders :). As for the VB6 version, I'm afraid I can't get it to work, although from what I've heard it's got some pretty nifty features.

Did you try re-installing

Did you try re-installing the vb6 common controls?
I really only wrote it for fun, proof of concept sorta thing. vb6 has to many dependencies on windows files. But if you could get it running you could see what I'd like to see in PAM.
I'll upload the what I started on later today so you can take a look.

Suggestion with the Theme function: Make it possible to change

The icons when switching themes.

For example when switching from Theme A to Theme B Theme B's icon theme is brought into effect.

When I switch themes the icon theme changed does not take effect until PAM is restarted.

I uploaded what I started on

I uploaded what I started on so far, basically I just added the options form to your R10.
I also included the menu.ini from my vb version as an example.
Source the executable is also in the zip if anyone want to play with it.

EDIT: Added the start minimized, and stay visible, they now save to the ini file.
Added folder options to the options form.
send me an email if you want to implement my ideas. (contact link on my website, website in my profile) I had to move the write routine to a new unit.

Sick.

I haven't said anything, but I've been using this, and it's awesome. The new rename buttons and change button path are what many people have been looking for.

Awesome work.
