Hi,

I found somewhere in internet ( i don't remember where) the plugin in the subject.I see it is not present in the plugin list in this forum and i thought it's not update.
I'd like, if it's possible, maintain it update because for me it's very simple to use but, unfortunately, actually it not find the current version of more PAF programs, and the PAF programs find are not all those present in the PortableApps.com web site.I don't understand well how others users in this forum integrate portableapp.com apps in Symenu upsetHow can i have the source code of this plugin to find a way to update it?I currently use SyMenu v.6.00.6406 and the PAF Plugin (as i can read in file-->properties-->detailes) v. 1.2.0.0 (2014)

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Dear ClintBarton,

Since you linked that previous post, you already know that the PAF plugin is only a simple front end piece for automate the PortableApps program indexing.

Do you want the plugin source code? OK I can give it away but you need to re-create all the server side logic by scratch and it's not so easy. And no, I haven't the source code for the server side anymore.


Anyway I have some questions for you.


SyMenu currently comes with 1288 freeware programs (go to Get new apps to find them all).

All this comes thanks to the SyMenu publishing system which is called SPS. It's a native system, constantly updated, and the resulting suite is always growing.

Some of those programs are packed exactly from the PortableApps guys.


Then what are the lacking programs from PortableApps you need so much?

Do you know that you can add to the SyMenu suite whatever program you need thanks to the SPS system? And eventually share it to the world enriching this already great suite?

In other words instead of becoming a developer for an old plugin, why don't you become an editor for a certain number of SPS programs? If you want you could even add all the lacking programs from PortableApps web site.

Just had a thought that may be helpful to those wishing to continue using PA.com apps.
I know there's a mutual bad feeling between SyMenu and PA.com, so I understand why this may not be wanted, but here it is anyway.

Previously, I suggested auto adding apps from your own Suite, but this can be problematic due to apps not always being in the root folder etc, but with PA.com apps, this is not an issue as they are always in the root of the app folder.

So as an example, it would be helpful if you could specify a path within SyMenu to tell it where PA.com's PortableApps folder is. Then SyMenu could auto search, or maybe only on user command, this folder for folders containing their apps. At least this way it would be easier for users to use both menu's.

Anyway, just a suggestion :-)
