CloudLauncher update

Well, after a brief hiatus, I'm back onto CloudLauncher.

Just in case you don't know what it is, it's a launcher app. Drag your files / folders / executables / shortcuts onto CloudLauncher - it creates a shortcut to your file. Double-click the shortcut - your file opens. Simple.

So how is it any different to windows explorer?

Well, the main reason I wrote cloud launcher was because windows forgets my icon positions. In fact, this is probably the only reason to use CloudLauncher. For now.

Version 0.1 is available here.


Add option to delete shortcuts!
Add option to line up icons.
Add option to edit the target of the shortcut.
Add "F2" to rename shortcuts.
Add option to choose (or disable) the hotkey.

Bug: Copy the name of the shortcut instead of the name of the target!
Bug: Don't crash if the global hotkey is in use!

Update: 29th October 2008
Added libraries to the zip file so that it compiles!
