Make a Donation Support the development of this and other utilities.

***The App Launcher is no longer being developed or supported.
Please use the SmithTech Portable Menu instead.***

App Launcher (exe only, for custom application)
App Launcher (zip file for standard usb, extract to root of usb drive)
App Launcher (ISO for U3 drives, use instructions HERE to install on U3 drive)
Easier Instructions for Sandisk U3 Drives are HERE

App Launcher will launch up to 6 applications from your usb drive.
3 custom apps including arguments plus..
PStart from \Programs\PStart\PStart.exe
PStart from \PortableApps\PStart\PStart.exe
Portable Apps Menu from \PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
In addition to setting an environment variable you can use in place of the drive letter in shortcuts, ini files, config files, etc.
The environment variable is useful when the drive letter changes from the last time you plugged your usb drive in as app launcher will set it to point to the new drive letter so your config files, shortcuts, etc. still work.

You must have admin privileges to use the environment variable option.

Usage:
Extract the zip file to your USB drive and run.

Command line arguments:
 -a  Launch Applications and set Environment Variable
 -d  Remove Environment Variable

New update to the autolauncher4u3.
