PA Backup

Submitted by wsm23 on January 5, 2007 - 4:14pm

Not sure if this is the right forum but it seems to be part of the PAM now so I will post it here.

I just updated my PAM to the newest release. I had trouble because I could not follow directions at first though.

My Drive only had the following files/folders in the root:

  • PAM launcher
  • Documents(PAM Style)
  • Autorun.ini
  • usb.ico

Here's what I did.

I used the PAM and PAB to Backup:

  • Apps
  • Documents
  • Entire Drive

Hi, me again. Where I can find the source code for the menu? I can't find it among the downloaded files... Is it distributed under GLP, or just closed like PStart ?

Doesn't seem to be a page for the menu/launcher

I've been looking for a page that describes the menu/launcher app under applications. I was curious about a forum posting that referred to the launcher looking down afolder and selecting EXE files.

Specific question; just EXE files? Why not other executables? like COM or BAT? In the past, I've even used BTM files on 4DOS.

The ability to use BAT files would be handy for getting arond the scripting problems noted with multiple EXE files in a directory.

Auto Startup of PortableApps Launcher Menu

You guys/girls are so far ahead of me it’s ridiculous. I’m new to PortableApps and the forum but I’ve been hooked on all I’ve read so far. I've searched first for an anwser prior to posting, but I might have missed it. Excellent site and program. Thanks, everyone!

I have a simple question on what I hope will be a simple task:
“When I insert my FlashDrive, I want the Portable Apps menu to auto start-up and display or at least load to the minimized tray. I experimented with the creation of an autorun.inf insertion into the root of the Flash drive, but it didn’t work. I’m running WinXP on my Desk and Notebook PC and would like to avoid opening windows explorer and double-clicking on Start PortableApps.exe to get the menu to load.”
