Nope.

The mystic plugin should have worked this way: take the PortableApps program structure into the SyMenu program structure and link all the programs.

Nothing incredible, neither too difficult but nobody creates it until now. Why?


IMHO an import process like this, makes you loose the autoupdate feature that the PA launcher offers. On the other hand SyMenu can autoupdate the programs only if you "install" them with the native feature.


Well SyMenu even has an import feature but it imports the programs, not the logical structure. And the autoupdate problem remains.

So the choice is entirely on you and, please, let us know what options you will choose and how your experience will be. It can be useful for other users.

P.S.
You have 1300 programs in SyMenu and 400 in PA. Are you really sure you can't recreate your 8GB program library in the SyMenu way?

thanks for reply ... !


offcourse i can recreate that 8GB library for SyMenu, but... everything is just so nice now, backup to mega and so on... i just though that it would be nice to just "convert" them u know.... but this SyMenu is lots of more than portableapps.com that it would be just plain stoopid to NOT. same time i can recheck all apps, delete bad ones, make better menus, make it really look like ... something wink

I ABSOLUTELY let u know how this ends... now u know how it begin wink

And usually a fresh new start is exactly what we need to become even better than what we are today!
I'm awaiting for the news.
