Thank you for this app. I have been using it for a while and i like it very much. In the beggining I was a little confused with UI but now is OK. I would like to request a couple of free apps that I use & dont have auto-update & distribution is very poor


Tabbed notebook with RichText editor, multi-level notes and strong encryption — https://github.com/dpradov/keynote-nf/releases

PDFsam, a desktop application to extract pages, split, merge, mix and rotate PDF files — https://github.com/torakiki/pdfsam/releases

WUmgr Windows update managemetn tool for windows 10 — https://github.com/DavidXanatos/wumgr/releases

Dear fsr37,
Welcome to the community.

I'm very interested in knowing what confused you about the UI to improve its easy of use, above all for newbies. If you want to tell me anything about that it'll be very useful.

Regarding your request, when a user propose to add some programs, I usually invite him to do that by himself.

SyMenu suite is an open suite and every user can contribute to improve it.

Naturally we have trusted users that are in full control of all the process and untrusted users that are strictly controlled and need approval for every submission but the system works well and, after a while, the untrusted users can be promoted and become autonomous.


BTW KeyNote NF seems to be abandoned (last beta release 2017, last major release 2015). It's not a good program to add.
PDFSam could be a good one instead, and the same is for WUmgr.

So why don't you try that by yourself? I'm available to help you to understand the entire process.

I started to use Symenu a couple of yrs ago because I wanted to have a Suite that also updated Sysinternals and Nirsoft utilities. But in the beggining I didnt use many Symenu apps because I did not new many of them and I also use Liberkey. Right now I manage the 1500 apps by filtering by name & category. I don't use description so much (which is checked by default). I also use status to check new and updated apps. I guess Symenu has a lot of options and a bit of a learning curve, to learn how to customize it one needs to go into options and config options (sort items by name, move apps between category, hide "excess categories" from main menu).

I think this is OK. You mean by using SPS Builder? I read your posts and tried to save one app but I couldnt validate.

Yea I know there are other tabbed text editors but I find this one very useful and have been using this since I use Windows. Right now I am W10 1909 and it runs without any problems, they havent updated it in a whyle but they did updated it when it was necessary.

Maybe i would also propose an alternative to Wumgr, MS official show/hide buggy updates - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026726/windows-10-hide-updates-or-driver-updates

So your troubles came from the search. Ok. Thank you.

What fields avoid the validation?

I have to write a proper manual for the SPS Builder before or after.... smile

In this case it's not a problem if a program is old but good and above all working on the last systems.

A fast review.

  • Program name - According with the author web site it should be WuMgr, not Wumgr
  • Publisher web site - In case of a web site that contains more than one software I usually prefer the program page. But the WuMgr page is empty (???) https://xanasoft.com/windows-update-manager/ so in this case is good to maintain https://xanasoft.com/
  • Main exe names - Here we have two issues.
    1) the path is relative so you have to write wumgr.exe without any path, because our executable is contained inside the root folder
    2) the logical name should be meaningful for our users because it will be the name they'll see in SyMenu. In this case WuMgr and not wumgr.exe
  • SPS Program report - Nope. It's your email or web contact form. Our users report here problem with the SPS not with the program

What's next?

You have to test the package pressing Test SPS online or Test SPS Local if you already downloaded the package.
If everything go well, SPS Builder check the package among VirusTotal.com

If this step goes well too you have to press Save in UGM.
Tah dah! Finished.
After that I receive a notification about your new SPS and make a full review. If everything is OK, your SPS will be published.

You don't need to do nothing by hand, SPS Builder does the job for you.
