Launch-It 1.5


Recommended Posts

Here is a little Application Launcher I made for my non-u3 thumb drive. It is still very much a work in progress but I am modelling it after the U3 launcher on my U3 thumb drive. It is all packed in a .rar file.

How to use (so far!):

Click on the tray icon to bring up the launcher GUI

To add an application:

- click on the "Add Program" button

- browse to the .exe file to add and click OK

To remove an application:

- click on the "Settings" button

- choose "Program" from the pop-up "menu" (this will bring up a new GUI)

- click on the program from the list

- click the "Remove" button and it will remove it from the list

- click the "Done" button to close the window.

To run an application:

- double click on the application's icon in the program list.

To change an applications label in the launcher:

- edit "settings.ini" found in the Data folder

- edit the "title" entry for the correct application

- save the ini and restart the laucher

To change the main launcher's position:

- edit "config.ini" found in the Data folder

- edit "herr" to change the x position.

- edit "verr" to change the y position.

Note: default position is in the lower right corner of your screen.

To exit the launcher:

- click on the "unload" button on the GUI.

Additional Notes:

The "More Programs" button does not work. Eventually by clicking it, it will bring up a window with additional programs to run.

Launch-It is limited (currently) to 9 programs max to have configured.

I am sure there are more bugs and things to do, but for now it serves my purpose. I will edit/update it as I am able to. Feel free to mess with it and post your code. Thanks!

Now, this is very nice. Great work! I'm always on the look out for Usb Flash Drive Launchers.

Currently I use a modified DCOT menu to launch my UFD programs; and so far I'm quite happy with it. DCOT is written with AutoIt by Tim Fehlman also, so maybe you could expand on its capablities. A Launcher Gui isn't always wanted; when a systray icon menu is much more unobtrusive. Now if only DCOT had nested menus. Anyways, perhaps this gives you more ideas.

An immortal object must be copied, so that we get a mortal copy of it, since we try not to destroy immortal objects.

This is nice but if i can suggest you some improvements:

1) drag and drop a shortcut to the list automaticaly add the program to the launcher.

2) the list should be set to iconview.

Let me know what you think

Thanks for the feedback. I looked at that DCOT launcher briefly, but now the site is down. I didn't see much special but I can now add something to the Launch-It settings... gui or not, tray menu or not, etc...

There is actually no listview or treeview on the GUI. Those are controls placed on the GUI itself. I just wasn't happy with the results I was getting using a listview in icon mode. I can definately add that as an option or fiddle with it some more.
