Seems to be a bug at Portable Version of ME.

Please, answer the following questions. It will help us to solve the issue.

1. Did you move your mouseextender to another folder after adding this items?

2. Items are also places at Usb?

I found the problem. I've namend the folder into [Mouse Extender] to seperate it. Seems that this was too much for the program...

If you renamed application folder that should not break the application items because it uses relative pathes (only items that links to files under the [Mouse Extender] folder could be broken).

For example MouseExtender app folder is:

"d:\ME\mouseextender.exe" (and other app files here)

Imaging you have added item that links to "d:\Games\SC2\sc2.exe". Program will store relative path:

item path = "..\Games\SC2\sc2.exe"

From now if you rename application folder to "MouseExtender" (for example):


item path will still be valid and application could be laucnhed and proper icon displayed at ME.

Please, let me know if I understand you case in proper way

Shouldn't be a problem any more.

Please, update ME upto version.
