Maybe this has been addressed elsewhere, and if so I apologize ahead of time. I've looked but haven't seen it anywhere, though I may be overlooking it.

PNG in Portable Apps Menu

Submitted by El Salvador on February 5, 2007 - 5:35pm

Hello everybody. These day, I'm working on PAM to integrate it in my launcher (ASuite) as new menu and I conceived to add png support. Therefore I'm looking for a component to read png files.

I found this component: ImageFileLib ( ), released under no license (public domain?). I tried to convert a png to bmp and load it in a TImage component. It seem works fine.

I used this simple code (in form's event create):

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  PNG :TPNGGraphic;
  BMP :TBitmap;
  BMP :=TBitmap.Create;

Problem with starting third party Apps from the Menue

Submitted by doubter13 on February 5, 2007 - 6:12am

HI there
i'm comletely happy with this great tool, but on tiny littly thing.
I made two new folders in the PortablsApps Directory, one for portable Putty and one for the Portable version of Trillian
They both work fine, but only if i start them with the .exe file from their directory.
When i start them from the menue they start too, but it seems as they dont start completely. Putty for example does not show the saved connections when started from the menue and trillian does not start all plugins, when started from the menue.

About eject the USB disk

Submitted by mattfoxwu on February 3, 2007 - 4:35am

in the menu of PAM, there is a button to close the menu progam, I wish this button can eject the disk in the same time, just like the U3 menu. Although i know that i can eject the disk without using the safe mode,but it can be better for user.
thanks .

Adding program to menu in suite

Submitted by donmor on February 2, 2007 - 1:15am

After running OpenOffice in the Suite, It gives me a file called OpenOffice.exe
I would like to use that file in the menu in place of the Write, Calc, Math etc. I prefer to have the main page come up and go from there as to have to choose write, math, calc etc.
Can anyone guide me as to how to do this.

problems starting on windows 2000 pro

Submitted by midnight visions on January 31, 2007 - 9:04pm


I'm trying to use the Portable Apps at work on a windows 2000 pro system, Pentium 4 with 500mb ram.

I work for a very large airline in Canada and all our computers are maintained by IBM with the same hardware and setup.

I get the following message in a dos window when trying to start the 1.0.1 patch of Portable Apps, "program to big to fit into memory"

I'm running it off an 8GB flash drive, the computers have no problem with that device.

I've tried Portable Apps on 12 different computers now and all give the same error message.

Portable Apps U#

Submitted by melenor on January 31, 2007 - 7:55am

i was wondering if there was a way to replace the U3 software and i don't mean the way to make the device into a regular thumb drive with the portabl apps just instead of it automatically running the U3 software for it to run the Portable Apps suite and for it to still have the CD drive partition.
