View Full Version : Running Apps from Memory Stick
01-30-2003, 08:47 PM
I still kinda new to my t615 - having converted from by beloved Vx recently. I used to moved apps to MS using Launcher X but the associated files would not move with the App. I just found PowerRUN. It love the way it works (moving Apps and the associated files to the MS) but its very slow. Any other way to easily accomplish moving a App and its files to the MS?
Thanks in advance (I love this forum)

You can use z launcher or megalauncher... Either one works but supposedly megalauncher is coming out with a new version. Just an advance warning... Megalauncher application is good but their support sucks... I mean, really sucks....

a lot of apps will run directly from the MS if they're in the Palm/Launcher/ directory - I don't know 100% for the t615 but it works like this for my T625C and NR70V. That's where I put most of my non-core apps. I also have a few apps and databases using PiDirectII - these are ones I rarely need, or won't run from the Launcher directory (but I don't want to clutter up my RAM with) - PiDirectII is disabled by default (just enabled when I need it).
Most replacement launchers can do this. Another way is to use a file manager such as FileZ (freeware) to move the app to the /Palm/Launcher directory on the MS. This is helpful if you want to use the default launcher.

It sounds like you have worked out how to move the programs themselves to your MS and have them run, but you need some advise on how to move your databases to your MS at the same time and still have them work. Well, there are a few solutions that you could try, PowerRun being just one of them. Read through http://www.LaunchPlug.com/VFSenabled.html for some details on how else you can work with your MS. I'd suggest trying out PiDirect II since you've already tested PowerRun. PiDirect works something like PowerRun, but is MUCH faster at using databases in most cases. I have a tutorial for using PiDirect II on LaunchPlug.com, but it's the same thing that comes with the PiDirect download.
Hope that helps!

Thanks to all of you - this helps a lot

Is there any speed difference running with/without PIDirect II, when doing things OTHER than those requiring PIDirect support?
