No need installation.

1. Autohotkey is portable.
2. You can compile F4MiniMenu to exe file.

Just so you know:

You don't need to install AutoHotkey to run AutoHotkey scripts. You can download "Download AutoHotkey .zip" from here https://autohotkey.com/download/ and unpack it autohotkey.exe will work. This will also allow you run any other ahk script on your USB device, especially if you create a simple launcher script - these can be batch files but of course also a (compiled) autohotkey script.

Some specific F4MiniMenu tips (but these apply to all "portable" scripts):

1a - you can copy autohotkey.exe as F4MiniMenu.exe to the F4MiniMenu folder and simply start it (it will look for a script with the same name automatically so it will launch F4MiniMenu.ahk

1b - you can create a simple batch file or TC button bar "pathto\autohotkey.exe" "pathto\f4minimenu\f4minimenu.ahk"

1c - in the autohotkey.zip file there is also a Compiler\ folder where you will find the ahk2exe program so you can compile "f4minimenu.ahk" to "f4minimenu.exe"

If I would release a pre-compiled F4MiniMenu.exe you would try it?

Edit: Ovg beat me too it Very Happy Hi Ovg

Recently, I'm being annoyed a lot by F4Menu in a very specific situation: While I have running in background Windnows 7 in Virtual Box I get it crashed almost every single time I'm trying to use F4. I do not get it. What's wrong with this tool? What methods it uses that produces so many crashes? I'd wish somebody had it recompiled with other version of MS VStudio and got rid of those annoyances. Yet, I still love this tiny tool waiting for a miracle Smile

I don't know exact conditions for reproducing this crash, I've tried to debug it once when it have occured constantly, it seems to be a bug in selection detection mechanism that happens under some strange conditions.

Thanks for the compilation. I tried it. To be honest I'm not convinced. But I appreciate the effort. We definitely need something native built-in made by Christian...

Ladys and gentlemen,

I have found solution to the crashes! Laughing

It is sooo simple that I stil can not believe it. What's more, the menu opens even faster! No delays I experienced sometimes. All what you need to do is to put a -p parameter. That's all Very Happy

Here is a screen shot from TC settings:

Umpal,
With -p you are not able to open multiple selected files via F4...

Indeed. I did not run a test on multiple files. That's not good but... If one experiences constant crashes in some specific circumstances, like in my case working with VitrualBox under Windows 7 all day long simultaneously to the native installed Windows 8.1, that solution is salvation*. I'm willing to pay this price as I get it working every time I hit F4 (otherwise it was like only 1 in ~15 times).

Anyways, I'll keep my hope that Christian decides one not-so-distant-day to implement a nice native TC's choice editor instead Wink

*I know there are other choice editors but I tried them and I still find M4Menu the best.
