Next Gen Launcher Testers Needed

I know the title says Next Gen Launchers but thats just a codename I could think of :S really it's just a launcher written in FreeBasic but some feed back would be nice.

So far I only got it linking to Notepad2Portable which I know is already portable but it's a start. There is a registry library for FreeBasic but right now it doesn't meet my needs and hence the reason I picked Notepad2. Later once it matures or design my own library then I'll move into Phase 2 and be considered Beta.

SO enough Jabering on my behalf I'll provide the Download link. My Source is included too Wink

Ok UPDATE TIME Biggrin
===================
I redesigned the launcher to work with path variables and here is SciTEPortable done with the Path Environment of SCITE_HOME set at Data\Settings

to test it out go to
http://thibeaz.com/portable/SciTE_Portable_1.0.0.0.paf.exe

A couple of things I have yet still to achieve is getting registry functions down and adding a splash Screen. Also because FreeBASIC is cross platformable I am expiramenting in making a launcher for FireFox the linux version.

Nice

Works like a charm, loads super-fast.

Now figure out that splash-screen code Wink

Thanks

Best of all I can compress the launchers too with UPX. I didn't because I accidently compressed on of my test ones that i was working on today and it works still
