Menu more persistent??

Submitted by Hilarious on October 5, 2007 - 5:02pm

Would it be possible to make the Menu have the option to not vanish on an app's selection? Some times - most times - it is very useful to be able to open apps in quick succession and not trek to the world's (bottom right) end to find a menu that could be more easily positioned and accessed to suit the user.

I couldn't find a response to the last person who asked this about 5-6 months ago. Is it likely or even possible?

so i hear that PAM beta 5 is out and that it supports .png files. well me and neorame were talking about getting the digital glass(alpha transparancy) that windows vista aero glass pulls off. apparently this can be pulled of with a .png file like the pam supports, unfortunately as you will see here, the PAM supports .png's without alpha tranparency making it imposable to pull of vista's aero glass.

i request that one of the improvements that we make to beta 5 is the support of alpha transparency.

Menu Appearance is scrambled!

I use a Thumb Drive with Portable Apps installed on it with PortableMenu. On my wife's computer and my work computer, it works fine. My son has a 3-year old 17" compaq R3000 laptop. On this laptop the PortableApps menu is distorted and I cannot make out the apps on the bottom of the screen. The only thing that is different is the screen resolution -- 1680 by 1050 pixels. How can this be resolved?

I didn't knew exactly where to post this, request or PAM.

Maybe it's an idea to make it possible, that if you run StartPortableApps, or open the Removable Drive, that you need to fill in a password to access it.
A password wich you can fill in at the Options Menu.

May i ask that: can PAM come with a RecycleBin?

In my notice that, when we are deleting files in USB flash drive and USB hard drive, they(the files) will get deleted straight off(no turning back)! Most of the time users will accidentally miss their files!

Or is there a similar functions open source application that could be intergrate in to PAM menu user-friendly!

with this kind of functions, i hope, we could prevents the important files from accidential-deletion!

Sorry that, i don't know which forums category should i post to, Requesting or PAM!

PAM disappearing in UBCD4Win

Submitted by HoodedCrow on September 18, 2007 - 3:15pm


I believe that PortableApps and UBCD4Win are two of the most phenomenal projects extant. Their combined powers are nearly beyond those of mortal men!

I do, however, have an issue with the PortableApps Menu running on UBCD4Win on USB. When I start PAM the menu appears as it should. When I open or close a window in Geoshell and then try to invoke PAM again it flashes for a fraction of a second and then vanishes. Even if I kill the task and restart it, the behaviour does not change.

Can anybody please tell me how to fix the problem?



PortableAppMenu Doesn't Do Anything!

Submitted by cailtindimareoliver on September 13, 2007 - 3:00pm

I've installed the PortableAppsSuite onto my 2g USB drive successfully... I see the directories, and everything looks good. When I plug it into my computer, Windows even asks to launch the Autostart... however, when I launch it, all I see is a flash of the dos command window and then... nothing. No error, no menu, no nothing!

I couldn't find anything on the site about this (I wasn't really sure how to search for nothing, though... so if I missed anything please point the way!)

Hoping for some insight?
