How do I put MS Office in the argument line? The test works perfectly, I just don't know how to make it work in the dock.

Took a second for me to figure out (and tweak for my benefit.. ), but damn, is this a nice little app. Saves a ton of clutter on my ObjectDock! Well Done!

Perfect program - and what more - from a Czech, a fellow-countryman Only hope this functionality will be added directly to ObjectDock soon and will be skinnabel cos it does not match my current skin. Very well done although for "users" a bit difficult to figure out, how to make it work and customize it.

Step 1: To make the programs work you have to edit the filepath thats in KkMenu.ini with notepad. Under [MS Office] u'll see the program title, its icon, then its file path. Change the filepath to where the program is.
Step 2: Make a new shortcut in objectdock, set the link to where u have kkmenu.exe, for example ( C:\Program Files\ObjectDock\KkMenu.exe). Then set the Arguments in the new shortcut to "MS Office" (with quotation marks).
Step 3: Figure out how this works and personalize it.

Good Luck

I'm now having the same problems as hashonboat.. It's giving me an error saying it can't load Kk Menu Aqua.png.. I've tried everything, and it had worked fine before, I'm not sure what's going on.. The test Batch File still seems to work. I've checked the arguments in my shortcut, Any suggestions?

Try making two copies of the KK Menu Aqua.png, inside the folder where the kkmenu.exe is and 1 folder level up from it.

hope it works

This is a great App. It is very customizable through the KKMenu.ini file. Great Work!!

this is great! thanks. had to move a DLL around (gdiplus.dll, had to put it in the system32 folder for some reason) and now it's working great. saves me a ton of room too.

Gents,

sorry for the delay, I was on holliday for a couple of days.

I will soon post the update fixing some bugs you reported and improving the graphical performace on weaker PCs.

Please note that I am not going to implement any GUIs for editing the INI file. The reason is simple: I am pretty sure that Stardock will soon include the KkMenu functionality directly into the ObjectDock. More they will probably make it much more complex. Thus the further development is an awful waste of time.

The less IT users simply have to ask someone for a help or wait for Stardock to write the menus support.

Also to write the instructions would eat me much more time than to write the entire KkMenu application (please note that it is so simple that I spent no more than 5 hours with the development - excluding the graphics work as I was learning the Photoshop - you can see that my graphics is not prefect).

Thank you for all you loopback.

Kk.

Hope this will help:

Step 1: Create a new shortcut in ObjectDock

Step 2: Edit the new shortcut (Right Click)

Step 3: Set the link to KkMenu.exe (ex: C:\Program Files\Menu\KkMenu.exe)

Step 4: Type "MS Office" on the argument line with quotation marks

Step 5: You can modify several things by editing the KkMenu.ini file with NotePad.
For example, if you want to replace the original icon of your program, paste your own icon in the KkMenu directory and change its name in KkMenu.ini (ex: Word = "I", "MyIcon.png", "C:\Program Files...). Do not forget to specify the right extension (.ico or .png).

Step 6: If the program you try to launch does not work, see if its filepath in KkMenu.ini is correct or check if the quotation marks (,"") are at the end of each line


If you want to create a new menu, it is quite simple

Step 1: Open KkMenu.ini and create a new directory (with the name [Games], for example)

Step 2 : Type the shortcut commands and respect the right syntax: MyGame = "I","MyGame.ico","c:\Program Files\MyGame\MyGame.exe",""

Step 3: Make a new shortcut in ObjectDock and edit the items. Title: Games / Link: C:\Program Files\Menu\KkMenu.exe (for example) / Arguments: "Games" with the quotation marks

That's it !

NB: Everytime you reboot Windows and you try to launch KkMenu, it says "Could not load image Kk Menu Aqua.png"
Here is the solution: Make a right click, select "Browse", go to KkMenu.exe, select "Open" and "OK".

Did you try to download the update (1.10)? I thought I fixed this bug.
