Error

When I launch start.exe I get this error. I have downloaded and extracted the zip file again, I still get the same error.

UPX

I get the same thing. The problem is that you ran UPX compressor on start.exe . You can bypass the CRC check by using the /NCRC command line switch.

It's nicely done, but is lacking in features when compared to PStart. Keep it up!

Hmm

Well I could either turn the CRC check off manually in the script or it would be bigger in size

Fixed

Thanks, but the program is now bigger in size.
As I have noted in the title, this is only an alpha.

Interesting idea.

Edit: D'oh! Sorry -- I posted this in the wrong thread. You should just integrate the two, to avoid this kind of mistake...

Interesting idea.

I want a system tray icon, a better logo for the program, a start-menu-like system with a right-click menu for adding items, and the like.

It didn't save the settings when I tried it... is something wrong? It didn't seem to read the "menu.ini" file.

I know

Still working on that
Logo is a green button with START written on it
System tray logo, interesting idea
What do you mean by right-click menu

Like PStart -- right-click

Like PStart -- right-click in the list, and you get a drop-down menu.

System-tray logo is the only reason I use PStart.

Is NSIS really the right system for this? Isn't it designed for installs, and thus not that good for what you're trying to do?

error & crash

I've downloaded and re-extracted the 0.5 file several times and get the same error every time. Wherever I try to add a program I get the standard error popup -"start.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." This is on XP.

Filemon says....

I'm not sure what to look for in the Filemon output so here's what comes out when I click the open button in the file browse window:

OK seems that this may become bloated
I will probably have two versions:
One big feature-full one
And one small yet fully functional one
My question:
Which one would you use?

Inactive Link?

First off, I'm glad to be here and eagerly looking forward to trying out the new start menu. U3 and Ceedo, while they have some nice features, are extremely annoying to actually *use* and personalize.

I tried downloading the zip file mentioned above but am getting a 404.

I think i'm having a problem

I think i'm having a problem with this program

At the setup where programs are added all I can do is highlight one of the programs on the list and hit next. Then all it does is launches the program.
Is that what the program consists of or am I not even making it past the install?
I've tried all of the versions and they all do the same thing.

Great job! I really like the 'Safely Remove USB' feature. I haven't been able to test it on a locked down computer, though, since my 'hobby' job, the Library, has gone completely paranoid. Has anybody been able to test if the remove device option works in a locked environment?
