Registry Rapper and Program Name in portableapps menu

When using Registry Rapper with Portable Apps the menu shows "Registry Rapper" as the application name - is there a way to change this to the name of the application that Registry Rapper launches?

Look for

Resource hacker
If its compressed, try utilizing upx to uncompress it-

upx.exe
upx -d filename.exe
and when your done, recompress it
upx -9.exe

Attach the file directory to the front of all the programs.

Thanks, after a few fumbles

Thanks, after a few fumbles I got it done (not used Resource hacker before.)
Update - I spoke to soon. The menu name changed, but when I tried to launch it I got an error about corruption.
Not sure what you meant by "Attach the file directory to the front of all the programs." Can you elaborate?

I'll try

I did a quick search and found registry rapper.

You may want to get the latest download here. That jumps right to the source forge.
The support Forum is here

I'm guessing/hoping that you didn't decompress it with UPX. (just cause I'm lazy)
1. Get upx, then extract and copy out the UPX.exe to the root of your drive.
2. Get also Command Prompt portable.
3. Put the RegRap.exe at the root of your drive.

I'll type out the lines for you to uilize in command prompt. X stands for your drive name.

It'll actually have X: up for your already, but for clarity's sake
X:upx.exe
upx -d RegRap.exe

From there it will decompress regrap. Go ahead and minimize command prompt. Make your changes in Resource Hacker, then Pull up command prompt. Type in these

upx -9 RegRap.exe

It will recompress it at its highest possible setting.
Typing exit after that will make ccommand prompt exit.

Hope I don't seem mean (I'm not trying to be)

If none of that works, ask in the support forum.

Still not there

Thanks again,
it appears that the problem is not compression/decompression. I tried upx and it said the file was not compressed. Also Resource hacker can access the values with no problem. Reading the error message a little closer it seems the problem is that ti is doing a CRC check, and changing the resource changes the CRC.

Believe me, I don not feel you are being mean! You have been most helpful!

Much as I would like to post to the RegRap support forum it appears to be locked.
