#9 Ability to add programs in sub folders

Future Release

I would like to be able to add a program to the menu that is in a sub folder. When I PortableApps\newprogram\subfloder\program.exe It will not show up on menu. I've copied the exe to just the newprogram folder and it shows up but will not run, it has to be in its specific folder to work. If you could also add support for batch files to show up on the menu that would be great too. Thanks for all the work you've done so far I love Portableapps.

    This would be a huge help as it'd allow me to show all my programs as opposed to scrolling down to view them. This and a few other missing features makes me almost want to go back to PStart so this would be excellent.

    We will be adding the ability to manually add apps in a future release. The platform won't scan subfolders as it may add some time to processing and could show lots of unrelated EXEs. You can track features and bugs here: http://portableapps.com/node/28593
