AutoHotKey

I'd really like to see this portable. Could be very handy to have your keyboard shortcuts at School/Work.

As far as I'm aware it's Open Source...

It is portable. You don't

It is portable. You don't need any launcher.

there are no real settings

there are no real settings or anything, you just need the autohotkey.exe file, and as long as a script that you write knows where that exe is, the script can run without compilation.

Easy!

I love AutoHotKey. As for portability- as far as I know it just modifies two entries in the registry.

I would suggest that you use the ahk 2 exe convertor. A word about splash screens- they don't work when launched from the PortableApps Menu.

Have fun!

autohotkey offers two main

autohotkey offers two main perks over just ahk2exe: the help, which has just about everything you need to do simple and intermediate stuff, and the context menu on an ahk script to run/edit/compile it on the spot. the later is where the registry entries come into play.

however, I am sure that someone intent on making this portable could find what parameters are passed to ahk2exe when you right click and compile (from win explorer), and make a launcher for akh2exe, so that it could be added to convey (Send to menu utility).

That would mean that making and editing and compiling ahk script would be incredibly easy. As for the help file, that can just be included with the launcher, which would launch the regular old ahk main executable when no parameters are passed to it. Sounds like a simple if statement (to open ahk [no params passed] or ahk2exe [params passed]), parameter pass [to figure out which file to compile and where to save the product], and a registry catch [to prevent ahk from adding reg entries].

You just gave me a great

You just gave me a great idea. I had already planned on trying to combine convey and an app called CAFE, which is also written in AHK. If I get it set up correctly, the SendTo menu for .ahk files would have the 3 shell entries from the installed version, to either compile, edit or run the script. Time is the only issue I have right now.

that's pretty much what I

that's pretty much what I was hoping for someone to attempt. I'd do it, but don't know any programming language better than a basic understanding of logic, or have the perseverance to figure out the source codes. Good luck, and any success will be greatly appreciated!

Try this . . .

Here's the code for AutoHotkey to put in the windows.

Menu, Tray, Main Window
;;Stuff your menu options here, like MsgBox Your underware is running away
Menu, Tray, No Standard
Menu, Tray, Standard

Okay, the Menu, Tray, MainWindow lets you have the main window. By saying to the script
Menu, Tray, No Standard
Menu, Tray, Standard
you tell the computer, my menu options should go on top!
