ShellMenu View is great for eliminating unwanted menu items when right-clicking. Definitely worth the price ($0.00!)
Here's a post we did on ShellMenu View- http://www.softwarecrew.com/2011/05/keep-the-context-menu-in-order-with-shellmenuview/

  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Apr 2017

Windows System Control Center (WSCC) allows you to install, update, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites. The program either works as an interface or as downloader. The program can work with both utilities suites downloaded or can dynamically grab and run the programs via a web connection. The included Update Manager can check for newer versions of the utilities already installed and can download and install the missing items.

Works with Windows Sysinternals and Nirsoft Utilities suites, but also highlights Windows' own utilities.

Note: The setup packages are downloaded from the author's website.

Sorry, sl23, no insight on that, since I'm not a user of either SyMenu or PAF portables -- I prefer to roll my own... :)

Notwithstanding, if still interested, check the following forum topic: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21891 ...

The download page shows 2.5.1.0 as the freeware version, 3.0.0.0 appears to be the payware version.

Driver Magician Lite v4.64 Updated

billon on 11 Apr 2017
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Apr 2017
  • Suggested by Carl

Driver Magician Lite identifies all the hardware in your system, extracts the associated drivers and backs them up to a location of your choice. Later, when you need to reinstall/upgrade Windows, you can restore all the saved drivers just as if you had the original driver diskettes in your hands. This is especially useful if you inherited an old machine or bought a white box system and did not receive all the original driver discs.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Windows registry. It remembers the folder that you last select to write the backup files to, which does not affect portability.
Dependencies: MSVBVM60.DLL MSCOMCTL.OCX
Stealth: ? No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Driver Magician Lite.exe.

For example, the TEMP environment variable specifies the location in which programs place temporary files." (source)

Previous question hasn't been addressed, so I'm foregoing RapidEE for now. I would really like to know if it addresses issues like the one reported here: http://sites.google.com/site/redmondlab/path

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Midas on 2012-07-04 20:27

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)
