- What is it?
- Launch Pad generates fully configurable, native, launchers with custom icon and tray support. This means different things to different people:
- For all programmers: It's an easy way to add full tray support to your applications.
- For Pocket C / VB CE programmers: Add a custom icon and the ability to handle command line parameters to your applications.
- For everyone: Lets you use custom designed icons anywhere on your H/PC. (See Pike for an icon editor.)

for other machines. See my Software page for
other Windows CE applications in the OnHiatus Software project.
NOTE:This Application is Freeware. No guarantees, I
can't be held responsible for any damages caused by using or misusing this
program! You get what you pay for...
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
I feel that Launch Pad is stable and robust, but I have only tested
this version on an HP Jornada 720.
