Finding Additional Apps

Where can I find additional apps that have been developed for the PortableApps Menu, but aren't hosted on the site? For example apps that have been modified to work without needing admin rights? If you could provide descriptions & links it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Do you mean aren't hosted on the site?

I've got a few, some of which are tanisthalon's. Patrick has some too, but he doesn't have a site yet, so I can't link to it. Of course, he could just use my homegrown CMS, but no. Blum

check this out

well there is a page on wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_portable_software

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_portable_computer_games

http://www.portablefreeware.com/all.php

these sites all contain links to portable applications but not made for the portable apps menu

also search for framakey on google and use the google translator to convert the french site to english www.framakey.org

Do all of these work with the PortableApps menu

tipra.wicked, do all of these portableapps you have links to work with the portable apps menu, or do they have to be converted or something?

One menu, all apps, any computer, the world would truly be a better place.

no need to do anything

you could straight away copy the software folder(from the zip package) to the portable apps folder you could also upx them if you want .
A side note some of these apps do not work with the original portable apps menu they just show an error and quit(this topic has already been discussed) you could use the beta version R30 ver and add an external app thanks for your comment anyway
ps-->nice to here such comments on my very first post

Stand Alone Apps

Yes, I have found that applications that install within their own folder work just fine and install themselves onto the Apps menu. Sometimes they add extra programs that are part of the original that are not needed. You simply go into that apps directory and rename the not needed .exe file to an extension, such as .zzz and upon exiting and reentering the menu, they will disappear. Standalone programs can be copied into their own directory and will show up in the menu as well. You can Google "portable applications" and find a lot more that will work with Portable Apps. This program is GREAT!

theres another way

if you use the PAM mod like i do you could also right click on the app and select hide app or you could even make a new folder and hide the unwanted application in that (this works as portable apps menu only checks the first two levels of directory heiarchy)

Great Site

The sites you gave are great I just wanted to let you know that the link to pencil portable on cubegames.net is actually pointing to blender portable. (I still figured it out & got it downloaded.) If you don't mind me asking, what is homegrown CMS? (I'll always ask about anything I don't know in order to further what I do know.)

Ah, I didn't pick that up. Thanks, I've fixed it now.

My homegrown CMS is a content management system that I built myself from the ground up for my site and the downloads.
