Closing PortableApps Menu

Submitted by ackerberg on December 22, 2006 - 4:43pm

When the menu is open on my screen I see an "X" on the bottom of the menu presumably for closing it? When I click on the "X" nothing happens. The only way I can close the menu is to open Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Delete) and terminate the menu. Is this the way I am supposed to close the menu? Should something be working so that the "X" works? Everything else seems to work fine except upgrades are very slow and you need much patience.

menu just won't work on my PC

Hello !

I am quite happily using pstart, but I thought that I could switch to the basic version of the menu ...
So I downloaded the stuff and installed it on my usb key... it just doesn't want to launch on my PC with windows NT pro...
I tested it on other PC's and it works fine ...
On my PC I get an error message "windows has generated an error application will close ...

Any suggestions ?

Working Directory

Submitted by Vytautas on December 18, 2006 - 9:14am

Could the new and upcomming version also include the setting of the working directory as currently programs like putty do not read their settings properly as the working directory is not set to . (the directory where the exe resides), but seems to be set to the directory where the menu app is located.

Install to PC

Submitted by Frank D. Hubeny on December 15, 2006 - 7:37am

Hello Group;

I just found a feature of AutoStart that I realy do like. You can install it to your PC. Then on start up the icon is already in the system tray. You plug the drive in and you are off and runing.

Is this feature avaliable with Johns. I know you can make a short cut but on net worked drives on start up the shortcut does not seem to work after a cold boot. The AutoSart featue does.

I am asking about this because not all of us run a PC where the autorun feature works.

I just installed the portable apps menu. When I click on documents/music/etc icon nothing comes up. I am not sure how to save documents to these folders so I can access them on the go later. Additionally, when I click the backup folder nothing happens. Any help for a newbie would be great. Thanks

Rename and not Display .exe

Submitted by michel-b on December 10, 2006 - 4:17am


fist i must say its a very nice program,
but i have 3-4 questions:
1. can i rename the Name of the Program in the menue?
2. if i have more .exe files (in one Folder) and wont not display all in the menue, what can i do?

i know this things are always discussed in the forum but for me it will be nice if it works

3. i want to create subfolders in the menue for better clearness.
and last (its not so important)
4. it will be nice if i can use batch files (perhaps change icons will be very nice).
