What folder opens up for you when you click this?

Okay, so turns out it's because yAP is hardcoded to run the launcher.ini from the launcher's own folder, while my program uses the aforementioned methods so that you can put the launcher in 1 place, then run it from another.
But it clashed with the specific case of "open as" due to Windows' lack of support to set the "working folder".

So I've added a fallback in those cases to use the launcher's own folder plus passed what you clicked on in your browser as the command line for the launched program, in case you didn't manually define one.

Can you try it in the latest beta?

There is such a program that blinks icons after completion. Can you implement it? https://www.upload.ee/files/16317731/Po ... r.exe.html

Okay. I found this way for myself.
In the "buttonafter" section, I entered an exe file based on cmd
"nircmd shellrefresh
exit".
Now, after completing the portable, the icon cache is cleaned.

Yeah, I dare not open that linked EXE.
I thought you usually use hidetrayicon=1 which is a feature added per your request, so which icon do you want to blink? A video capture might help.

Sorry, I don't see any blinking there in that video.
But again, if you use hidetrayicon=1 which icon is supposed to blink?

Not a blink, but a single blink. The video shows how the icons next to the Start menu are flashing. This is after the portable program is closed. In this case, the browser.

So once the launched app is closed, you want all task icons to do a single blink?
