I know hamradio is going to be keen to look into these issues -- though you should know he has been in the hospital until recently so he may be a bit delayed in responding.

Thanks for the heads up mouser. No worries on the timing. Been waiting forever for this, so I am patient ;)


With that said,
The best, most ideal functionality would be a utility that when double click, would assign file associations to windows explorer based on the (portable )user entries.

That way there would be no middle man like PEW.  Is this possible? mouser? I haven't seen anything like this.  Is there even a chance of building something like this?

Bug #1:...
I will fix the bug a little later as I am still working on getting accustomed to the computer chair again.

1. CRITICAL:...
1. Mine was never meant to take over normal file associations on the computer even while just running.  I remember a program that could do what you want...but I cannot find the link right off in my bookmarks.

4. Minor: Should have AUTO...
2. Perhaps at some point.

The following update has a couple new features...

RECOMMENDED UPDATE:

1. Added the ability to create the icons for existing applications and automatically for new and edited applications if they don't already exist to read from them instead of from the application executable each time.
2.You may customize them as long as the filename/directory structure and image width/height is followed.
3.Launcher was updated for key press find of applications by first letter only.

Note if application icons are not found, then it should fall back to the application executable.

Enjoy and as always let me know if bugs are found. :)

Download link in 1st post.

Thanks for the update, hamradio! I was able to use this feature #1 to add custom icons for CLI apps (e.g. ffmpeg). #3 is a nifty time-saver too.

Beta Launcher 2.2.0.1 for EXISTING USERS who want to test the new directory support.

Download only includes the launcher application not the DropZone/Launch File Config Tool.

To test directory launch support:

1. Rename existing launcher to your choice of new name.
2. Extract new launcher from downloaded zip file to the Portable Extension Warlock directory.
3. Launch configuration tool and add to the list of extensions in each application entry that supports launching a directory: <dir>

Note: Download attached to this post will be removed when beta testing is over and added to an official release.


Release of official version now live.

RECOMMENDED UPDATE - 2.2.0 build 1

1. Added directory support. (Use <dir> as an extension in each application that can handle directories.)
2. Minor bugs fixed.

Also recommended for you to create an application entry just for directories for windows explorer, so that you may still open directories with windows explorer if you have at least one application that supports directories.

Expanding on my recommendation above...

Something like the following for a file explorer entry through the launch file configuration editor...

Code: Text [Select]
  1. App File: <pewdrive>Windows\explorer.exe
  2. App Name: Explorer
  3. App Exts: <dir>
  4. App Args: "<file>"

Also move to top application entry if desired.
