Houston Launcher is small application which resident in systray icon. It reads plugins from plugin directory and launch them on demand.
Some time ago I was looking form small application which resident in systray icon. I needed some kind of notes with fast access. So I wrote one. One small icon with ability to lauch desired app. And that was it.
Now everybody love plugins (like Eclipse), so applications from Houston Launcher are plugins too. You can write your own plugin and launch it from Houston Launcher. You don't have to worry about icon handling. Just copy plugin to Houston Launcher and that's all.
Houston Launcher is written in C# from .NET 2.0 framework. Project files are from Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Express Edition.
Houston Launcher from version 1.2 is rather to be discontinued. If
you want you can always develop it by yourself.
