Editing the PortableApps Menu to allow Non-PortableApps.com applications

Is it possable to edit the PortableApps Menu to allow Non-PortableApps.com applications? I currently have 53 portable applications on my drive, 48 are not from portableapps.com. If I could get a copy of the source code I would add a button that will launch a GUI allowing the user to add other programs. In addition I would allow the user to choose the location for the installed programs and documents folders. Great Job with what you have done, Thanks.

PAM menu will allow other

PAM menu will allow other apps to held with in it. Just install it in a folder with the exe's in the PortableApps folder. If the name shows up wrong (flash games for instance) utilize resource hacker (google it) to change the product name.

The source for 1.1 beta 4 is here:

I think that computers run on smoke. Why? Because when the smoke comes out they don't work anymore! Biggrin

Also, you could try the PAM

Also, you could try the PAM Mod that I use. One of the extra features is adding apps that are not in the PortableApps folder.
