Creating AIO Portable App Pack in one executable file


Today i am going to talk about "Making All in one portable Applications".For this
topic there are several methodes used,and in this small tutor i will explain an
easy method.

I would like to explain my tutors by freeware softwares and easy methodes (of course
if posible).
Making "AIO Portable App Pack in one executable file" is not hard,but searching the
web pages to find an small ,freeware and easy software to do this ,realy was so hard.

I could not find any software to be free and also do "ALL" our needs,(this does not
mean that there is not this kinds of apps in web,just i could not find).

An way ,i have find an small app that can do most of our needs,and now it is time to
begin the tutor.

But Befor begining ,it is necessory to user to have some informations about portable
Apps,How to creat them and ..., you will see a lot of very good and complete informations
about portable apps in link below:



I suppose that you have enough infomation,and also:

1_you have made three portable Apps, for example (AAA,BBB,and CCC).

2_you have Converted each of these portable Apps to one executable files (in this
example you have AAA.exe , BBB.exe , and CCC.exe).if you do not know how to do
this read link below:



Step_1 Creating Menu an launcher for our project

1.Download AMenu for CDs v1.1 (just 200k)(at this time it is in link below):


2.Extract downloaded "AMenu.zip" some where for example c:\AMenu\.

3.Rename c:\AMenu\AutoRun.exe to c:\AMenu\My_AIO.exe

4.Delete all files and directories inside c:\AMenu\ exexpt "AutoRun.exe" and

5.Copy "AAA.exe , BBB.exe , and CCC.exe that you have made befor,to c:\AMenu\.

6.Open "Autorun.inf" by notepad,change all it's contents by informations given below:

icon=My_AIO.exe, 0

titletext=________My All In One Portable Applications v1.0_______
buttonqty= 3
menucolor= clSilver

buttontext=Run AAA

buttontext=Run BBB

buttontext=Run CCC

5.save and exit

At this time if you have done as i explained ,by runing c:\AMenu\My_AIO.exe , you will
have a menu window as pic_01 (get from atachment),and by clicking any item for example
"Run AAA" ,it will be run.

Notes about "Autorun.inf":
_ You can add other button sections,for example if you have 5 apps in your AIO,you should
add sections [BUTTON4] and [BUTTON5] ,and also you should change Number 3 in
"[CUSTOM CD MENU]" section to 5.

_If you read readme.html file inside AMenu.zip ,you can customize your menu some more.

Step_2 Converting our project to One executable file

At this time we have made our AIO Apps,It works and we do not have any problem with
that,but may be some one likes to convert these files to an executable file.
for this purpose one of the easiest ways,with using freeware softwares are explained in
link below:
