You can do whatever you like in SyMenu!

What you got in your menu is only a first configuration for a (too) greedy user smile (sorry for the little joke)

I mean it's only your starting point and, from now on, you can organize your programs in the way you like more.

The SyMenu update process is not tied to the logical items organization but to their physical folders organization. If you explore you FS you'll see that all those categories don't exist and every program is located inside a single folder named accordingly.

You can't mess with the FS but you can do any kind of reorganization on your logical items.
You can even duplicate a logical item for whatever reasons and SyMenu will update either because, indeed, there are no duplication on FS.
What I discourage to do is removing any logical link to a physical program because, in that case, SyMenu will think you don't care anymore that program and will remove it from the FS too.

I hope I have helped you.

Hello ... I have a question. I have installed ALL the apps because I want to learn more about them. I am using a 55 inch 4k screen but still the list of items is very long and some have similar categories. For example I would want to have the programs that are image viewer under Graphics and not have so many separate categories. Some categories only have one program in them.
I can probably move the programs around through SyMenu configurator but im not sure if that will somehow "break" the update feature. In other words.. my question is: will the update work after I move the categories around, and if so, will the update re-create those categories, or will it be left in the way that i set it up? thank you in advanced for any help and advice. thanks

No tenia ni idea. Mal vamos con estas cuestiones. Uso Linux a diario y cuando necesito Windows uso sólo portables. Y estas peleas me temo que no llevan a ninguna parte. De todas las suites portables SyMenu es la más completa, con diferencia. Sigue así.

I had no idea. We are wrong with these questions. I use Linux daily and when I need Windows I use only portables. And these fights I'm afraid don't lead anywhere. Of all the portable suites, SyMenu is the most complete by far. Keep it up.

It's because we have adopted the portapps version because of the better portability.
Please search for qBitTorrent among the programs and you'll find it.

Just curious to know why this has been discontinued. Anything I should be aware of?

Unfortunately PortableApps is not a viable solution.

PA "self-proclaims itself as an open and friendly community" but indeed it is not so open neither friendly as it seems.


You can search on Google to know the war they declared to SyMenu and to Lupo Pen Suite and to ASuite and who knows how many others launchers.

Do you remember the Microsoft ways at the beginning of their history?
If you don't, please watch this Simpsons interpretation to refresh your memory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H27rfr59RiE

Well PA has very similar manners, without the money part... smile
If you are curious about the topic you can start your reading from this thread: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105572

I'm not saying that people belonging to PA community are conscious about this evil attitude. On the contrary, they contribute with their work, enthusiasm, and free time to create the PA program suite for free and I guess they would like their programs could be also used outside the boundary of the PA official launcher. I imagine they can even bear that SyMenu, the terrible PA enemy, could be one of the user...

Unfortunately the reality is far different because at the top of PA pyramid there is a person who has completely different ideas from his entire community.

Topic: Update SSL Error
SyMenu is able to connect with any TLS protocol available today but...

The TLS 1.1 protocol is available only in .NET 4.0 and upper.
The TLS 1.2 protocol is available only in .NET 4.0 and upper.
The TLS 1.3 protocol is available only in .NET 4.5 and upper.


SyMenu is a good animal and needs .NET framework 2.0 or upper but is able to work at its full only with the very last .NET framework.

The Angry IP Scanner is downloaded from Github.com that implements the TSL 1.2.

So the question is: "Which is the installed .NET framework in your PC?"

Topic: Update SSL Error
Hello, I am currently trying to update some of my applications within SyMenu. The problem with many applications is that I always get an SSL error message. So it seems that no SSL connection can be established.

Here is the exact error message:
Angry IP Scanner (x64) 3.6.2 The request was aborted: No protected SSL/TLS channel could be created..Please try again
Angry IP Scanner (x86) 3.6.2 The request was aborted: No protected SSL/TLS channel could be created..Please try again
AstroGrep 4.4.7.0 The request was aborted: No protected SSL/TLS channel could be created..Please try again

This happens with very many programs! I would be grateful for help!

Topic: Nirsoft update issues
NirSoft suite, differently than SyMenu suite, is updated once a month. The next update is scheduled for the 19th of February.
This is one of the reasons for which I intend merge the NirSoft with the main suite, as I already done with Sysinternals. This way NirSoft will have the same frequent update that the main suite.

I regularly check for updates and have Nir Soft as a separate tab but do not seeing updates for any of its apps. So I checked and both apps I have checked on Nirsoft's What New listing https://www.nirsoft.net/ shows that for example Chrome Cookies View was updated to 1/2/2020 to 1.58 but I am at 1.57 in Symenu. Same thing for AdvancedRun v1.15 30/01/2020 on Nir Soft but Symenu shows 1.10

Yes, if the update gone wrong you can have this serious error.

To solve the problem delete this files from the SyMenu root folder:

7z.dll
7z.exe
Innounp.exe
Ionic.Zip.Reduced.dll
MaterialSkin.dll
Newtonsoft.Json.dll
SyMenu.Libraries.dll
SyMenu.Plugin.Resources.dll
System.Data.SQLite.dll
System.Query.dll
System.Xml.XLinq.dll

and remove the two folders
x64
x86


PLEASE DON'T TOUCH THE LIB FOLDER INSTEAD.
The Lib folder is the new location where the libraries are now.

When you are done, run SyMenu and please report here if the solution works for you.

I was prompted earlier today to update to the latest version but it didn't seem to complete properly. Now I get the following ominous error message when I try to open SyMenu.
