Hello. Here is the latest update.

Biniware Run v.1.2.0.0

Change log:
- New: The following keyboard shortcuts are available in the Shortcuts tab:
Insert key -> Adds a new shortcut under the selected node. If there is no selection, a new shortcut is added on the root level.
Delete key -> Removes the selected node.
Enter key -> Executes the selected shortcut.
Shift + Up -> Moves the selected node up on the same level.
Shift + Down -> Moves the selected node down on the same level.
Shift + Left -> Moves the selected node from its parent one level up.
Shift + Right -> Moves the selected node under the node beneath it, if exists.
Ctrl + I -> Opens the import dialog.
Ctrl + E -> Opens the export dialog.
Ctrl + S -> Sorts ascending or descending the children nodes of the selected node. If there is no selection, the root level will be sorted.
- New: Right click in Configuration tree view now selects the node.
- New: Added configurable confirmation for deletion of shortcuts.
- New: Added configurable text wrapping for properties values.
- New: Added configurable option for displaying tooltips on desktop icon context menu.
- New: Added support for preventing the movement of the desktop icon.
- Fixed: Dropping an URL over an existing shortcut makes the program crash if the software can't connect to read the website title.
- Fixed: Removing a node from the tree view does move the selection but the new selection is not focused.

Hello. Here is the latest update.
Great to see the update. The lack of a really solid launcher program has been (in my view) a real roadblock in portable freeware adoption. Having a program that isn't going to stop working with some odd Win10 update is a huge deal. The last really excellent program was ASuite, which has a fair number of bugs and has been out of development for some time now.

I should add that certainly PortableApps's launcher is great if you only have less than 20 programs, but I have had real trouble sorting/organizing anything with 40+ programs not specifically downloaded from PA.

Thanks and welcome to the forum. I should have some feedback for you in the coming month.

Biniware Run v.1.3.0.0
This is very young software and new important features are added very fast. Please share your feedback and report any problem, suggest new features that you really see as being important, but missing. Thank you for your contribution.

Change log:
- New: Added configurable global keyboard shortcut Ctrl+` that will open the shortcuts context menu on mouse cursor location.
- New: Added configurable global keyboard shortcut Ctrl+1 that will open the Configuration window.
- New: Press and hold ALT key to display and configure keyboard shortcuts.
- New: Added support for using environment variables in Path and StartIn properties.
- New: For files located in the PATH environment variable, it is enough to use the file name for a shortcut. For example, the path can be just cmd.exe or notepad.exe
- New: Added the UAC shield icon overlay for the shortcuts which have 'Run as administrator' checked.

- New: Added option to auto close BRun after executing a shortcut.

My feedback is unfortunately limited and probably not very useful, but I had real difficulty with accessing programs via the floating icon. Maybe it's just my particular setup but it felt unwieldy and I couldn't make much headway. Any chance I could get you to enable something to run from the notification area?

I created this as a drag and drop tool. You can't drag and drop new items in the notification area, therefore I can't put it in the system tray. You can set the opacity of the floating icon to 10% so that it won't stay in your way. The context menu can be opened anywhere the mouse cursor is located by using the global hot key.

Is this acceptable only from moderators or can all of us use profanities?
That's great use of language, billon: you should go far and, the farther away, the better.

I don't see any problem with this. The integrated updater also connects to the Internet to download an updated assembly. Why the installer can't do the same ? Anyway, once you have the software on your machine you don't need any installer since it can update itself.

I avoid profanities by choice. There is no site policy on this unless it bridges into abuse.

I don't know about billon, but I generally avoid web installer programs to help avoid security issues and I like to know what's happening on my system. Web installers were all the rage back when everyone had slow connections and you needed to download a larger program (I think Netscape had one for a while) but I'm not sure it's necessary anymore thanks to generally better Internet connections and download managers. Some exceptions include dotNET, a few Linux thumbdrive creators, and PortableApps Platform, though that's more of an automated update rather than a small installer present to download a larger file.
