Thank you for your work Gian, as always, it is very much appreciated.

Will test it out tomorrow and report back any issues, or good points for that matter!

Perhaps bad news: It's the second time that SyMenu frozen after Update.
It arrive with CCleaner_Portable and today with Macrorit_Disk_Partition_Expert (but in the second-last position of update too).
It download and install ok but never finish (frozen with three flashing dots). I must kill SyMenu with the Administrator but the SPS app are well installed.
Gian ¿are ther esome beta log to send you?

Don't worry I already fixed the bug in a new beta I will release within some days.
The problem is not the update itself but the update of a program linked to more than one item in SyMenu.
Probably your Macrorit and CCleaner are in this situation.

It's normal because SyMenu is not signed.I should get a certificate to sign it.

I may feel stupid, but I wonder how to have both versions (without re installing everything obviously, or wrecking the existing)
Just Copy in a new folder then "import existing apps??... or
anything smarter??

Download the beta, unpack it, copy the main executable in your SyMenu folder changing its name from SyMenu.exe to SyMenu.beta.exe or something similar.
The two versions will works without any problem side by side. The only thing to follow is to not execute them at the same time.

So the release went fine and so far no errors reporting back on the beta. I do have a question, with your unlinked option is it possible to show the location of where the unlinked files are so its easier to manage or even edit directly from the scanned area? As you can imagine 1029 application and trying to hunt for them isn't easy.

@Jason
You have a tooltip on every entry configurable to show the itemd locations.

@lupusbalo
Yes usually the trick works but with certain versions the configuration files are changed so you can't retiurn back to the older version.

The possible customization for publisher are these ones https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#Customization

Years ago I inserted a little banner directly inside the menu. It was very little and if you click on it, it disappeared forever, but the community reacted very bad to this news. The menu space is really precious above all in the root menu and the users optimize it in several way. In that occasion I learned that wasting those space is bad.

My thought was to try and place a banner 88x31 at the top of the menu
