Topic: Does SysInternals Suite exist
I studied a project that allows a user to create and publish its own suite from a different host than ugmfree.

I called it "the private suite extension".
This private suite thing is naturally a themed suite: a user publishes graphical tools, another system tools, one other school tools, and so on

The private suite can even be protected with credentials if the owner wants to distribute it only to certain other users. Is anyone thinking about a paid subscription?

In your case you could create your themed suite using already available SPS, publishing it from your website/blog/whatever, and being completely independent from the official SyMenu suite.
Nice uh!

It's a really complex project and I'm not actively working on it but who knows what will happen in the future...

Today SyMenu only supports custom local suites along with its own suite and NirSoft suite (https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#CustomSuites).

The custom local suite works like the future private suite extension but it can't be published and distributed automatically. You can create your SPS collection and distribute it manually... indeed it's not a great way to publish something.

Yes when a program is added from any suite, it's included in the same old boring SyMenu. It's on you to create logical separation through the folders or different SyMenu.

I prefer the separate suites for things that can modify the Registry, the boot sector, format or re-partition drives, do DoD erasing, run surface tests....

(i.e. a completely separate toolbox for those things I consider to be a bigass hammer)

But I assume after adding a package from any suite; will be added to the same SyMenu as everything else.
...oh well...

It's not on you either if you are an SPS editor.


The secure layer required by a website must be supported by the client and in your case the client is SyMenu through its framework and OS (in your case the .NET framework 4.8 and the Win 7 OS).

When you download something to install from a local package, you use the browser instead. In this case the browser itself supports the required protocol.


The PCI-Z website requires a TLS v1.3 so try to launch SyMenu with the -logger arg and you'll probably find a log file with this message: "TLSSettings - Error in setting up TLS 1.3".

Indeed it has been added and, after a while, I changed my idea and melted it into the main suite.

It was senseless having two separate suites when the search filters had become so powerful. Try to add a custom filter called ":pub sysinternals" and you will have the Sysinternals suite with no other programs in the grid.


The right question instead should be: why the hell the NirSoft suite is still separated if the filters are so powerful?
Well nobody has asked it yet so it remains a mystery...

Hi Kevin,

Welcome to the community.

Your point is valid so you'll find a more relaxed limit in the 8 alpha version that is available here https://www.ugmfree.it/Forum/messages.aspx?TopicID=840 (I hope I have to develop no more on the 7 version). Anyway... it's an alpha so try it but don't use it as your main app.

BTW the thickness is not related to the contextual menu, that is probably the context in which you need it more. The parameter is tied to all the other forms. The contextual menu modification is a bit more difficult to get and I put it in my todo list.

When adding PCI-Z to SyMenu; I received:
PCI-Z (x64) 2.0 - The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.Please retry



Yet I could use SyMenu's 'download' button and 'add from local package' buttons without error.

(I am running Win 7 Prof. and .NET 4.8)

Now I actually don't care about this particular app; but I am planing to create quite a few SPS files of my own.
So, I am trying to avoid this in any I create.

There was a post back in 2015 mentioning that a SysInternals Suite was about to be added.
What happen to that?

I saw in a post; that you allow changing border width via manual edit of SyMenuConfig.zip... nice.


But then found:
'<!--The borderThickness parameter can be set to 1 or 2 (pixel). Any other values will be ignored-->'

Not sure of your reason; but as screen resolutions go higher & higher, even 2 pixels is very small.
(certainly, this has to be at the very bottom of your to-do list, but hoping a future version might allow a bit more)

Just in case someone has the same problem as me:

PAT needs a certain minimum desktop resolution at every startup to build the GUI correctly. In my tests it was 1440x900. The display of my notebook is only 1366x768 and the result looks like the attached screenshot.

I almost went crazy before I got the idea to test PAT on my external monitor. The GUI is displayed correctly and can now be enlarged and also reduced to any size.


Apart from that it is a handy, well integrated and easy to understand tool. Thanks for that.

Well the solution you found is more related to installers while SyMenu, as I told you, doesn't need to be installed.

BTW did you try to use the SyMenu zip package instead of the exe package?
This try avoids several of the problems listed in the article.

And above all, check you AV!!! I'm pretty sure the problem is tied to the AV.

Topic: Unable To Install SyMenu
Hi and welcome to the community.

SyMenu is not "installable" at all. It's a portable program. You download it, unpack, and execute.
Who is telling you there's a writing error? Is it Windows? Is it SyMenu?

SyMenu needs to write on its own configuration files.

Do you have enough permissions when you try to execute it?


Have you already checked if there's anything in your AV software log?

Sometimes SyMenu is classified as a virus!!!!! Bad boy!!!

In this case you have to convince your AV that it's totally wrong because SyMenu is a really good boy instead.

Guys, I hope you're all doing well. I'm posting this in order to fill a void. When I try to install "SyMenu" on my Windows 10 PC, I get an error notice that says "problem opening file for writing." Is there anyone who can assist me in resolving this issue? Any and all recommendations will be greatly welcomed.

Indeed I don't understand what you are trying to do.
SyMenu is not a plugin but it's a full desktop program for Windows and, for this reason, It's not installable on any web site.
If you explain to me what you are trying to do I can give you good suggestions.
And probably this is a conversation more suitable for a private chat because I think it could be of no interest for the community users.


Sorry for not understanding the forum properly. Actually, I thought it might be a plugin forum, so I was quite interested in it. Anyway thank you so much for reverting back. I would like to add a free plugin to my website which I shared. Anyhow, may I able to do this?

Joplin Portable not able to start from SyMenu

I don't see anything strange in the SPS but, since we are speaking about that, we can go a little deeper.

The environment variable redefinition is correct by itself.

Joplin is an Electron app and this kind of app is really easy to redirect from the Appdata folder to a custom folder.
Why is the redirection a good thing in general? Because this way you have the program and the user data located in the same folder with predictable relative paths. It means portability! It means that you won't lose your data when you reinstall a clean version of Windows if you backed up the entire SyMenu folders.

The Electron apps can be easily redirected but they need to find the right folders in the new place to work.
With a redirection like yours (USERPROFILE=.\USERPROFILE) the program is expecting to find this folders inside the Joplin root:
.\USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming
If it finds these ones, it creates a further Joplin folder inside the fake Roaming and writes inside that all your data.

Well if you want to experiment, please backup your data before!!!!
