Portable Apps messed up my flash

Submitted by misteroriley on February 9, 2007 - 2:22pm

I installed portable apps but when I put it on my work computer (where I am not registered as an admin user) I was not been able to access my flash drive. Ever since then I have not been able to access my flash drive. My computer recognizes the flash drive but it says that I have 0 free space and 0 space altogther. Has anyone else had this problem? How could I go about clearing and maybe even reformatting my flash? I have tried disk mangement and it does not recognize it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I was wondering if there was a way to create subfolders in the menu just like there are in the Windows start menu--so I could have a pop-out folder of "Internet" with Gaim and Firefox for example. Thanks

Eject button?

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 .
