Hello i have to build a script that will change the root of every program's shortcuts (hundreds) in one click, i would like to get basic help on where to start. The script will search every entry that contains example D:\ and replace for P:\ so when i switch pc i can quickly change root of portables on the usb key or static drive letter for that pc. If it is possible to implement an option in program that do it; it would be awesome

It's not possible because SyMenu doesn't work this way. I can't understand why your items have an absolute path BTW.

SyMenu works always with relative paths so for example this is a typical path:
.\ProgramFiles\SPSSuite\SyMenuSuite\CCS64_sps\CCS64.exe
while this is a wrong one:
H:\SyMenu\ProgramFiles\SPSSuite\SyMenuSuite\CCS64_sps\CCS64.exe


And this is exactly the reason for which when a SyMenu user moves its SyMenu installation and all the programs under its control, from a folder to another or from a unit to another, he needs to do nothing to make it works.
When I attach my pen drive in a new PC I don't need to care about the unit letter the PC gives to my unit. SyMenu works the same.
This is portability!



Why do your programs have absolute paths?
