Topic: New version 7.02 ???
Hello Sir_X,
You are right but the reason is very simple.
The development on this version is over. What I'm doing in this period is to fix something if I discover a big bug but no more implementation here. So no more announcement even if you can find the usual changelog here https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuDownload.aspx#changelog

All my energy, attention, and interest by now are for the new version (https://www.ugmfree.it/Forum/messages.aspx?TopicID=840) that I suggest you and the other users evaluate because it's quite ready to be released.

The more you test it, the less it will be bugged the day I will release it.

Hi Gianluca,

Next to restart my PC & Symenu, I have a message about a new version 7.02, no news in the forum (as far as I know it), please anything to review, to check, etc.

N<Best regards,

Sir_X

Hi,
Thank you for your help. Version 7.02 did the magic for me smile. D&D is now restored. Cheers

Hi fsr37,
It's a really strange behavior and I suspect it's exactly tied with the W11 adoption as you assert.
Unfortunately I have no PC compliant with W11 so I can't test it by myself.
Plus I'm no more interested in developing on this SyMenu brench because I'm porting it to a new framework (.NET Core).

So I have two suggestions for you.

1) Try to update your SyMenu to 7.02. Perhaps the new version will do the magic and restores the D&D even if I doubt it could be so easy.
2) Try to update to the alpha version 8.0 (https://www.ugmfree.it/Forum/messages.aspx?TopicID=840) that is written with the new framework.


If neither works, let's hope that Santa Claus will bring me a new PC where this f***ing W11 can be properly and offcially installed.
Well I love MS but this thing of cutting out so many "not so old" PCs from the new Windows version stinks a lot as an "Apple mode" behaviour even if MS has no interest in selling HW... apart from their Surface line.


BTW please report here your outcome.

Hi

I have been using Symenu for a while but I have upgraded to Symenu 7.01.8 recently and discovered that Drag and Drop support for program tree is broken. I can reproduce this behaviour either in normal or elevated mode. I am using Windows 11 not sure if this is related. Any workaround?? Can I use any config file in Symenu folder to sort items in menu?

Cheers,

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...

'-logger'... that's helpful!
Its should be added to https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#CommandLine

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.

Topic: Unable To Install SyMenu
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.

Guys, I tried searching for a solution to this problem on Google and came across this. But I'm not sure if this trick is safe or not. Please make recommendations for me. I've attached a screenshot of the problem.

Thank you for responding, as well as for the recommendations. I don't have enough information to comment on this. But I'll attempt to respond to you later.
