System tray icon

Submitted by RogerL on August 12, 2007 - 6:55am

Please can someone give me some clues on how I can change the varying shades of grey surrounding the white curved arrow in PAM's icon in the system tray to varying shades of the red used for menu's default surround.

I would like it to stand out more amongst all the other icons in the system tray and to diffentiate it when I have two running testing a beta.

I wouldn't mind if one of you graphics experts found it was quicker to do it for me than to describe how to. Smile

installing portable apps menu renamed C: drive

Submitted by gkimber2 on August 11, 2007 - 10:42am

I have windows XP

I downloaded and installed the standard suite. I installed portable apps to the folder:

C:\portable apps

I noticed that my C: drive has been renamed to "Portable Apps (C:)" and the icon for the drive has been changed to the PA menu icon.

I would like very much to fix this.

Hello everyone! I'm new in this forum. I was trying to run PortableAppsMenu on my Windows ME with 1158x864 resolution and I get the error message below:
Portableappsmenu has caused an error in
Portableappsmenu will now close.

If you continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer.

The parameter is incorrect.

OS: Win Xp Pro SP2
USB: 1 GB MP3-Player USB 2.0
Portabel-Apps: Suite 1.0, Patched from 1.0 to 1.0.1

Got these Error-Messages in the Win-Explorer anytime I'd like to open the Apps from my USB-Player.

The only thing that works ist the portableApps-Menu, but even if I'd like to start any app using the menu, the Message-Box appears.

Have done the installation as told in the guide, directly into the root of my player...and there it appears under "Workplace\MTP Player\Internal Storage\PortableApps"

Any Guess?
